Sales slowed down considerably during the last week of November, coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday. It's to be expected, of course, so it's nothing shocking or to be concerned about. Activity will pick up for a week or two, and then slow down again the last week or two of December. Here are the statistics for last week! Hope your Thanksgiving...Read More!

What a special time of year --- conjuring up so many wonderful memories of days gone by! It's a holiday for good food and for some, lots of family around with whom to share games, a scrumptious meal and lots of conversation! For some, it may be a day to just hang out with a friend or spouse, maybe going...Read More!

From the California Association of REALTORS® comes the results of a recent survey asking buyers what features they most hope to find when purchasing a new home. In our area, we may not have quite as many energy-efficient features as in other weather-driven regions, such as the desert or mountains.

Inventory is definitely better than six months ago, as you'll see from the two charts posted below, but activity is holding, with a total of 44 sales vs. 42 sales a month ago. One thing is certain: there are folks who...Read More!

Built in 1941 in an established area of Santa Maria, it has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a formal living and dining room, and a large comfy family room that was added onto the original...Read More!

No radical changes from two weeks ago to this past week --- the local Santa Maria Valley real estate market is just chugging along, with inventory slightly increased and sales running smoothly down the track to closings! It doesn't seem that the holiday season is having a negative impact quite yet, as many buyers are still hoping to be "Home...Read More!
