So ..... its the weekend! Click here for the open house list. Then, click here for week ending rates from Guy Rivera at Guarantee Mortgage in Santa Barbara and Solvang. I've seen better but I've also seen a whole lot worse. Its Old Santa Ynez Days this weekend so pop on over and join in the fun on Saturday! Click here for a nice article on the event and Juan Lara, this years Grand Marshall. Fun for everyone and an annual tradition in the valley. I'll be back here on Monday with all the news. Have a great weekend!


3075 Samantha Drive, Santa Ynez (4/2 on .50 of an acre) $3900 per month

Back on the Market with a Price Reduction

609 Central Avenue #3, Buellton (3/3 on .04 of an acre)  Was 422K with a new price of 410K.

Price Reduction

2829 San Marcos Avenue, Los Olivos (main house plus large studio) Was 837K with a new price of 815K. Just a block or so from the coffee shop, the distance to downtown doesn't get any better than this. You could get coffee in your jammies and walk back home in your slippers.  Back unit, which we understand from the narrative was built or converted with a permit, is casual and well put together studio style and might qualify for the new ADU permit process and homestay. Check the open house link above. Says open house Sunday but the times are messed up on that one. If you want to know the time, let me know and I'll ask .... probably 1:00 ish to 4:00 ish or so.

Under Contract

1665 N Refugio Road, Santa Ynez (main house and guest house on 5.14 acres) $2,795,000 


4062 Paseo Poco, Santa Ynez (4/3 on 5.05 acres) Listed at $1,375,000 and sold final for $1,375,000. Original price $1,425,000 with 122 days on market this time around. I love the cool old barn on this one! I'm glad someone finally saw the merits of this property. One of my favs in its price point and property type.
