In talking to Guy Rivera today, he is anticipating the possibility of rates floating down tomorrow ... great time to buy or refi. Seriously, at the rates we are seeing now but even more so if rates float down some more, these could be long term loans. If you can lock in a super low rate, you really can hold your loan for 30 years without refinancing or you even pay it off early. In fact, Guy is working on loans for several of my clients in process right now as he is my #1 referral partner which he continues to earn year after year. I love the team approach, fast service and reliable advice my clients always receive at Guarantee Mortgage. Their program is also secure which is really important considering today's high tech hijacking. Guy is very approachable. Click here for his contact information and you can even apply for a loan online which most people today take advantage of. But if you want a face to face, he's up for that too which is sadly a characteristic fast leaving the financial world. Real caring, home town service like the old days coupled with the technology of today. Hard to beat that.

Of mention:

641 Roskilde, Solvang (2/2 condo) 410K The last two to sell over here Nina and  I sold as the listings agents. It was a feeding frenzy. Lots of demand for these single story, close to town, easy to manage condos with a very generous yard. Even has a wood stove. Over 1,000 square feet. HOA is $370 per month. Listed by my long time friend Nancy Rizzo of Village Properties.

3973 Roblar Avenue, Santa Ynez (4/5 on 30 acres) $4,250,000 I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak with clients on this one. I will say, with absolute sincerity and certainty, that this is quite possibly THE best view site along the Roblar corridor. That is saying a lot as this corridor is known for lots of usable and big views, which is a hard to impossible combination here or anywhere on the central coast. But at this site, you enjoy wrap around views from an extremely private location and well off the road via a long entrance driveway for the ultimate in peace and quiet without traffic impacts. The house is built to last. Not some slapped up production number from the 70’s either. This one is fully custom, built with care and attention to “built to last” character, drama and design in 2000. Big and bold at 4,500 square feet yet at the same time comforting, sweet and very cozy. The nearby party barn is super cute and the guest apartment very nice too.  Some homes in this price range can be beautiful show places though overdone and cold. Not so here. The vibe is casual, comforting, inspiring and peaceful. This is a place you really live, not just visit. Warm, inviting and the sort of place you can’t wait to get to and don’t want to leave. If you are looking for a home that welcomes, a view that has no compare this close to town and the privacy we all crave today, take a look at this one. It really does leave an impression. Try and find a location this good with the convenience factor and panache of the Roblar corridor. I don’t think it can be done. Sometimes it’s worth paying for a prime location. This is one of those times. Listed by Carey Kendall of Village Properties.
