This is one of the nicest little services I have been fortunate to discover lately! Don't consider this a "tech tip", but rather a benefit I want to share with my readers who enjoy reading as a leisure activity, as I do.

Inventory of homes for sale in the Santa Maria - Orcutt area is still hovering around 100, including single family homes, condominiums and PUDs.

The Santa Maria Valley real estate market, like most California markets, has become increasingly difficult for buyers on the lower end of the price scale. Investors are rushing to snap up the remaining inventory under $300,000 it seems, and daily I am watching the so-called "average" three bedroom homes coming on the market at prices over $300,000, that would have...Read More!
