This is good news. We haven't seen the 30 year fixed conforming under 4% in a while. Nice to see that line item with a "3" in front of it. Click here for the mid week rate update from Guy Rivera at Guarantee Mortgage.

New Listing

550 Aebeltoft Way, Solvang (3/2 on .24 of an acre) 825K Sharon: Interior corner location. Less neighbors means more natural light. A true great room design. See photo #16 to see the layout of this truly open great room floor plan. Some say they are great room but this one really is.  Listed by Rich Condit of SYV RE. 

Price Reductions

1915 Viborg Road, Solvang (3/3 on .45 of an acre + office/den area)  Sharon: Was 995K with a new price of 949K. I like the way this one sits up way up off of Viborg so drive by traffic is of little consequence. Very good condition. Tons of off street parking too which is important in this neighborhood if you entertain or have a lot of cars. Cute little vineyard. Close to everything. This is in the section of Sunrise Village that is in Solvang school district. Listed by Allan Jones of SYV RE

1021 N Refugio Road, Santa Ynez (3/2 main house + second residence on 1.98 acres) Sharon:  Was $1,295,000 with a new price of $1,250,000. Refugio address but well off the main road via a long access driveway for zero drive by traffic. Listed by Wayne Natale of Village Properties. 

Under Contract

470 Rancho Alisal Drive, Solvang (3/3 on .59 of an acre) 575K Sharon: Must be some kind of record in the Alisal. Only 7 days on market. Listed by Susan Beckmann of Sothebys

221 Oster Sted, Solvang (3/2 on .21 of an acre) 715K Sharon: On my favorites list! Listed by Debbie Vollers of Village Properties.
