Many Zillow new listings emails are for listings that aren't new. This seems to be an increasing trend. In some cases, the property has been on the market for months. I think sometimes a change in the description, agent, price change or extension of the listing expiration may trigger this but nonetheless its inaccurate. From a buyer client standpoint, they get all excited only to find out that they looked at that listing months ago or decided not to see it for some reason. I've had many calls or emails from buyers and sellers asking why I didn't inform them of this new listing at which time I have to have this same discussion. It isn't really new! From a seller perspective, I guess it is however pretty cool. Free advertising is always good. So FYI with Zillow, new is not always new. But sometimes it is.

New Listing

2829 San Marcos, Los Olivos (main house and guest house on .16 of an acre) 865K Rare offering of a house and permitted guest house just a block or so from downtown. There are very few of these types of properties in the entire valley, fewer still in LO. Guest unit is behind the main house. Each home has their own fenced yards and separate entrances. Very close to the coffee house, easy distance to school and a hop skip into downtown LO. 

Price Reduction

2664 Janin, Solvang (4/3 on 1 acre)  This is a listing in my own inventory. Was 995K with a healthy adjustment to 950K. A really good buy made even better with motivated pricing. This home is turn key. Better than new by a long shot. New kitchen, bathrooms, lighting, flooring, plumbing .... the list is too long to describe here. Pool, gardens, circular driveway, detached 3 car garage, climate controlled wine storage. Janin water which means flat rate $375 per quarter. This is some of the cheapest water on the central coast. Owned solar panels equals little to no cost for power (no leases, completely paid for). Gosh, this place is awesome! If you haven't seen it before, make it #1 on your to do list. If you have and this new price perks up your ears, come and see it again. Its a good one! See the property website at
