This is a brave statement, but he said it. "ZERO percent chance of a rate hike today as Fed meeting wraps up" as quoted from Guy Rivera at Guarantee Mortgage. A lot of buyers out there should be doing the happy dance. If you haven't found your property yet, this sounds like a little breather for those concerned about a rate hike. Click here for today's rate sheet and then give Guy a call. No time like the present to rock and roll on getting your pre-approval done so you are ready to buy. There is a big difference between "want to buy" and "ready to buy". Ready to buy is better. 

Returning to the Market

2664 Janin, Solvang (4/3 on 1 full acre with pool) $1,039,000 Back on the market due to no fault of the property.  In fact it was only pending for a few days. This is a wonderful property in my own inventory so go see the property website at Remodeled with care and good taste. I love the kitchen. Even the old plumbing was removed and updated. So much new here, the list is endless. Just the right size pool, raised beds, fruit trees, privacy, lush lawns. The 3 car garage/shop is an added bonus. Popular Janin Acres location with fixed rate private water at $375 per quarter (not per month, per quarter).

Price Adjustment

360 St. Joseph, Los Alamos (2/3 on .12 of an acre)  Was 725K with a new price of 675K. This one is completely redone, including the detached guest studio. Turn key in this tiny town that is really making a name for itself. Just a few blocks to down town. I'd weigh about 500 lbs if I lived just down the street from Bob's Well Bread because I'd be eating there several times a day! We make the drive to eat at Bob's and Jamie's Bell Street Farms all the time. Yum! Charlie's is on our favorites list too. Definitely worth the few extra minutes to get to Los Alamos for unique and well done food options and your money goes a lot farther on housing too. 

Price Adjustment

501 Heritage Lane, Los Alamos (4/2 on .23 of an acre)  Was $559,500 with a new price of $539,500. Started in April at 609K. This is a really nice development with all single story homes that are well kept and pretty. Community walking paths and picnic areas. Low HOA of $45 per month. These floor plans are especially nice and the homes are located with easy access to highway 101 for commuter convenience. Even has a 3 car garage. 

Under Contract

2730 Ontiveros, Santa Ynez (house and guest house on 10.01 acres) $2,445,000 All I can say is waaaahoooo!!!! My own clients are the lucky buyers of my all time favorite farm house. Those who understand quality of workmanship and design will automatically fathom the enduring and outstanding character that is so expertly displayed here in this single story extensively remodeled home. Every corner, every nook and door leads to something amazing to love. Don't even get me started talking about this kitchen. One of the best kitchens in the valley. The land here is equally as fantastic. Flat, gently rolling, all usable. Views, very close to Los Olivos, Ballard school district. Seriously, what else could you want? When its right, its right. These buyers and this property .... definitely right for each other. 

Under Contract

2113 Rebild, Solvang (2/2 on .26 of an acre) 744K Cupid is a little late this year but he is still busy shooting his arrows apparently because this one was love at first sight for my lucky clients who were the successful buyers. This house is, as we say in cowboy country, done done! Floors, kitchen, bathrooms, windows, doors. Everything here is fresh as a daisy and absolutely current. No mystery expenses looming in the future as this house is perfectly remodeled already with a big open kitchen and tons of natural light from added sliders. The landscaping is both lush and easy to care for. The front courtyard is an inspired way to gain usable private yard space. Great location too in this hyper desirable Creekside neighborhood. Stroll on over to Sunny Fields park at the end of the day or down to a multitude of shopping and dining options. Some houses I just know are "the one". This home is "the one" for my clients who I could not possibly be any happier for. Only 6 days on market. 

Under Contract

3119 Tiana, Santa Ynez (3/2 on .78 of an acre) 749K Only 5 days on market. Fixer with a future!

Under Contract 

1374 Faraday, Santa Ynez (3/3 on .35 of an acre) 895K Gorgeous remodel! Not surprised it found a buyer quickly as well.
