Under Contract

275 W Hwy 246 102, Buellton (3/3 condo) $161,162 There is one word for this one. Dogpile. That was pretty much what happened when a condo came on the market about 300K below normal asking. This unit is the rare city of Buellton income restricted unit so two things happen. There is a very low income max to be able to buy it and be approved by the city and the city decides what the sales price will be now and into perpetuity. Not a way to earn equity but a good way to be an owner without saving up a huge down payment. Lots of offers + one available unit = a lot of disappointed buyers.  Listed and shepherded valiantly by Karin Aitken of BHHS.

310 2nd Street, Solvang (main house plus guest studio on .23 of an acre) 750K Listed by Patty Cotter of Village Properties.

331 Dogwood Drive, Buellton (4/3 + casita) 812K One of THE nicest homes I have seen in Sycamore, bar none and better than new with a lot of upgrades and classy upscale amenities. Buellton, delivering value like no other town or city in the valley. Around 3,000 square feet of gorgeous. Listed by Patty Castillo of Sothebys.
