It's Thursday. Here is your link to the open houses this weekend. Click here for the open house list. 


Ballard Canyon Rd., Solvang (3/2 on acreage) $3,500 per month. This rental is related to a pending sale with one of my clients so not available until 9/19 for showings. See the property website at Such a cool ranchette property with a ton of charm. Remodeled house with plenty of room and facilities for your furry friends. $3,500 per month for house and lower horse facilities plus more horse facilities available for an extra amount. Pets considered. Horses ok (no stallions). Get in touch with me for more information. Do not disturb current tenants. 

Price Reduction

1233 Calzada, Santa Ynez (3/2 main house + 1/1 guest unit on 1 full acre)  This is a listing in my own inventory. Was 985K with a new price of 950K. A nice reduction on a property that is move in ready and loaded with goodies. Recently remodeled from to bottom, this home will save you a lot of $$$ in renovations you don't have to do. Often we see buyers picking up fixers only to find out later that fixer upper will end up costing hundreds of thousands of dollars to actually finish out. Where does that money come from? Savings? Have you tried saving up $200,000 lately? Yeah, for most people it takes years if at all. So push the easy button and buy a house that is already done instead of using up your hard earned savings and do it with a bank loan to pay for it over 30 years. Pay as you go renovations may seem romantic but believe me, after you are still looking at that same tired kitchen year 5, buying a house already done will start to look pretty darn good. This one is done and done! New pretty much everything. Sparking clean with newer kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, lighting, windows, doors and so much more. Check out the guest unit and the huge double bay shop below. The privacy in this location is unbeatable not to mention surprisingly good views. Its a good one! Come and see it at my next open house this Sunday 9/10 from 1:00 to 4:00. See the property website at
