How about some quick facts, from the National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers 2011! Oh and remember, this is a NATIONAL survey, not specific to Santa Maria and/or Orcutt, or even just to California. Sometimes it is fun to see what happens nationwide. The estimated median monthly mortgage principal and interest payment of a first-time homebuyer was...Read More!

It's been a month since my last Puppy Update and while she's only been a part of our family for about 6 weeks, we already wonder how on earth we ever lived without her!! We marvel at her puppy cuteness, at her smarts, her ability to be respectful of our three cats and at her charm. There is no one...Read More!

Looks like sales in Santa Maria and Orcutt are up again! Inventory is down a bit more than the week before (click here to see), hovering around 200 for single family homes, condos and PUDs, and we sure could use more nice homes to sell. The demand is there, but the supply isn't. In ordinary times, that would result in...Read More!

Second, the home itself is so tastefully designed and decorated you...Read More!
