A hidden gem of a neighborhood in North Santa Barbara County.  Each of the East Valley Farms horse properties in Orcutt, CA are situated on 10-12 acres in a quiet country setting overlooking the Santa Maria valley.  There are a few horse boarding and training facilities located here and you will often see people on horseback riding through the neighborhood. The sandy trails allow you to ride off of the paved streets since East Valley Farms requires that space to be preserved between the road and property improvements like fences. Equine enthusiasts range from Western pleasure, trail riding and reining to dressage, jumping and cross-country. The gently rolling terrain of East Valley Farms horse properties is perfect for almost any equine activity.  The mild weather in Orcutt, CA means mo...

2012 Orcutt CA Mid-Year Condos Real Estate Market Update The number of condos sold in the first half of 2012 increased 22%.  However, the average list price and sales price decreased quite a bit.  In fact, the average sales price decreased by 12%.  It will be interesting to see if this “trend” continues when looking at data for the last half of 2012.  It certainly feels like inventory shortages are driving prices upward but it will be interesting to see if that feeling is supported by the facts as they come in.  The number of short sales in this category more than doubled, and foreclosures edged down slightly.  I certainly hope to see the number of foreclosures continue to decline, in my opinion, short sales are often a better way of handling negative equity and the need to dispose of t...

2011 Real Estate Market Update -- Orcutt Homes Sales   Orcutt CA 2010 2011 Homes Sold 419 452 Average List Price $322,018 $289,805 Average Sales Price $315,069 $282,307 Days on Market 80 103 $ per Square Foot $171 $154 Foreclosures 127 138 Short Sales 96 123 Looking at the sales figures for 2011, the number of homes sold increased by about 8% in Orcutt. However, the average sales price went down 10% which is a considerable decline. Days on market increased to 103, so it took longer to sell a home in 2011. However, that figure is probably affected by the increase in short sale listings which stay on market while bank approval is obtained. Short sales increased by 28% in the Orcutt area. Foreclosures also increased but not as drastically -- they increased about 7%. Overall, the appetite f...
