As is typical, sales picked up again after the Thanksgiving holiday, with a few more new listings, and more sales, during this first full week of December. Although showings drop, sellers can be assured that the buyers who are looking during this time of year are really serious about making a purchase --- so sellers needn't give up hope, and...Read More!

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!

Are home sales slowing down a little as the holidays are approaching? Possibly a little, although not by much. 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!

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!

Looks like smooth sailing right into the holiday season! No major changes in our local market stats when comparing this past week to the week before, which was the last week of October. Yes, fewer new listings, but that is to be expected this time of year. Some sellers want to wait until after the new year, when in my...Read More!

The last week of October - first days of November proved to be active. New listings, and more sales too! Definitely a jump in activity, and perhaps some of that is due to the fact that year-end is looming, so for investors who need tax breaks for 2013, it's time to bite the bullet. Or the bullet has been bitten;...Read More!

Fewer pending sales this week and fewer new listings. Nothing radical, nothing to worry about, business as usual! Interest rates remain very favorable, and more inventory is needed as buyers are still very interested in choosing a home before prices escalate even higher. Other than that, we are sliding downhill toward the major holiday season of the year! Ready to buy...Read More!

Fidelity National Title has released the newest edition of their Market Trend report, covering sales in the Santa Maria Valley through September, 2013 (vs. 2012). So very interesting and encouraging to see the "distress" sales going downhill from a year ago! Our sales are down from certain months last year, due to lack of inventory, but any time I can...Read More!

The market in Santa Maria and Orcutt seems to be slowing down a bit as evidenced by the last few weeks' reports. Is it the somewhat typical Fall seasonal slow-down? Is it the result of all the uncertainty of our government stalemate? Or perhaps, a combination of the two? The distress market has nearly disappeared, with a paltry one or...Read More!
