Well, a boring day without much going on .... where is everybody? Sheesh. Let's check in with Guy Rivera from Guarantee Mortgage and see what rates are doing today. In an email earlier, Guy said "St. Louis Fed President Bullard said further weakness in inflation could prompt the Fed to cut rates, even if economic growth maintains its momentum". We can only hope! Click here for a link to today's rates. 

Tomorrow, Nina and I are posting our favorites lists. We are not going to collaborate but instead will independently formulate our own lists and see where/if we share any of the same property loves. Should be fun! 

Under Contract

1240 Highland Road, Santa Ynez (3/3 on 1 acre) $1,250,000 Listed by Kris Johnston of Engel and Volklers


2005 Kanin Hoj Road, Solvang (4/3 on .56 of an acre)  Listed at 779K and sold final for $756,500. Only 29 days on market and selling for about 97% of asking with no price reductions. One of my favs for sure and priced very well. If it sells fast, its priced right and/or has a motivated realistic seller and/or has a particular in demand characteristic (location in this case). This one seemed to have all 3. Listed by Marlene MacBeth of BHHS.

The hyperlink to each listing shows the listing office name if you would like to contact them directly. If you aren't already, please ask to be on my Daily Real Estate Update email list to receive the complete blog post with pics and aerials sent to you daily via email versus you having to remember to check my website or Facebook.  Due to recent copyright issues, pics only appear on the email version. The identity of those on my list is not shared and I don't spam anyone. My daily updates are not a complete list of everything that happened today but instead events the general reader might find interesting or items you need to know to make good decisions. These informational items are also readily available on a variety of other sites. Readers should consult other venues of information gathering to find out more or to complete their information gathering efforts but this is a great place to start and I write every day Monday through Friday letting you know what I know. I will NEVER send you a request to wire money. If you ever receive a request from me to wire money, it is a scam. Do not reply to it but do forward it to me at scurrie@bhhscal.com for further investigation by our company tech staff. Real estate related wire fraud is rampant worldwide.
