In the excitement of buying a home, there is sometimes a tendency to want to gloss over the mechanics of the contract and just cut to the thrill of getting it accepted. While it's often a time of tension, it is really a good thing to take a big deep breath and sit still for the length of time it...Read More!

My reports do not include...Read More!

Two new listings have come on since my last Foxenwood Estates update on August 9, and they are both regular sales and single level homes!! How's that for hitting the jackpot! Foxenwood homes are more likely to be regular sales than most areas in the Santa Maria Valley, and one reason may be because when people move here, they tend...Read More!

I ran a search today for a buyer who thought perhaps a condo might be suitable. Unbelievably, there were only six available units in the entire Santa Maria Valley, in ANY price range! Here they are! 2338 Westbury Way $299,000 Beautiful Somerset Gardens near the intersection of Broadway and McCoy where you'll find shopping, banks, restaurants and more! Built in 2003, this...Read More!

This past week showed signs of a little slow down in activity in our local Santa Maria Valley real estate market -- just a little, but kind of as it should be, what with school starting. Take a look at the prior week of August 5-11 here to compare. Nothing radical, and we are down again in inventory, but maybe...Read More!

And we need one of these in Santa Maria and why not in Old Orcutt? Lots of good locations for it, maybe as an adjunct to one of our wine tasting rooms! I enjoyed this unique experience Thursday evening with my sister and two nieces and a large group of wild women at The Painted Cabernet, on State Street in...Read More!
