Two interesting quotes today from Guy Rivera at Guarantee Mortgage. "Guarantee Mortgage has a proprietary bridge loan that's available if you have not sold your house and want to buy up. Rate is below 3% and it comes with deferred payments, call me for details" and "What a difference a day makes. Rates have settled in on a new level but it does not seem to be bothering people that are buying new homes. The tick up in rates is the new norm. People recognize that and understand it".

Price Reduction

3379 Tivola, Santa Ynez (3/2 on .24 of an acre) Was 529K with a new price of 509K. Original price 559K.

Under Contract

1522 Eucalyptus, Solvang (2/1 on .19 of an acre) 442K As expected, a short 6 days on market.

Under Contract

373 Kendale, Buellton (3/3 on .27 of an acre)  659K Covered parking for 8 cars on this one which is obviously a very hard to find characteristic, even at any price point. 

Under Contract

4145 Roblar, Santa Ynez (main house, guest house, producing vineyard and full horse facility on 26.48 acres) $6,600,000 One of my personal favorites. Built with unbelievable quality and attention to detail. 


1329 Calzada, Santa Ynez (5/2 on 1 acre) This is a listing in my own inventory. Listed at 895K and sold final for 885K. I had a lot of action on this property and could have sold it multiple times! It’s wonderful when sellers and buyers have very high integrity, commitment to the process and take full responsibility for the part they must play in the success of the sale. Believe me, it isn’t always so! With such a beautifully maintained property, the road to close of escrow is so much easier. A huge thank you to my sellers, the buyers and Gigi Hollister of Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate for being my partners in this easy and perfect sale. Loads of happiness in the futures of all parties. Only 27 days on market.
