Home is Where the Heart Is

by Elizabeth Van Slyke

Home is where the heart is. This timeless saying rings true for many, but how people feel about home ownership varies between generations. This infographic from the Center for California Real Estate offers an interesting look at the differing opinions. One thing's for sure - millennials like their kitchens!

4th of July Events on the Central Coast

by

We’re a little spoiled with options for celebrating the 4th here on the Central Coast. With so many great events the hard part is choosing which ones to attend! Most events are on the 4th, but you can get a jump on celebrating with Paso Pops this weekend. Paso Pops is a Paderewski Festival Event offering live music, food, wine and beer, family friendly activities and fireworks. This year’s program will be performed by The San Luis Obispo Symphony, Youth Symphony and The Swing Dolls! Just make sure to buy your tickets in advance as they can’t be purchased at the door!

On the 4th we have events up and down the coast. You can start the day with a pancake breakfast and parade in Templeton, hit up the annual doggie parade in Avila Beach at mid-day, and finish up with Fireworks in Cambria, Cayucos or Pismo. Or you can take it easy and spend the afternoon listening to Snap Jackson and the Knock on Wood Players at Atascadero’s first-ever Bluegrass Freedom Festival.

You really can’t go wrong with whatever you choose! For a full list of local events check out KSBY’s roundup. Enjoy and stay safe!

Wildfire season is just around the corner – make sure you’re prepared!

by Elizabeth Van Slyke

Your home. It's probably your most valuable investment. On top of that, it keeps the people and things you love safe. With all the rain we've had this year, CAL FIRE is warning people about the abundance of natural grasses. Once these grasses dry out, they become a serious threat when it comes to wildfires.

So what can you do? Create defensible space to protect your home. CAL FIRE has a number of resources to help you get prepared. Here's what 100 feet of defensible space looks like. Be sure to take a look around your yard and make any necessary changes while the grass is still green!

North County Real Estate 2016 Review

by Pete Dakin

This real estate report looks back at 2016 North County and projects market activity into the first part of 2017. While the past certainly does not equal the future, we try to provide insight to help our valued Clients make good decisions regarding real estate.

Residential home sales stayed on par with about 1600 unit sales for 2016 which is similar in number to 2015. The average price of in-town, single family homes reached $396,000 reflecting a 6% increase over 2015. Pending sales going into the new year are higher than 2015 which reflects a stronger 4th quarter than we usually experience in sales. Inventory of single family homes, for sale, is up 30% which reverses a trend over the past few years. 

Going forward, it appears that home sale price increases will stay modest in the 5% range or less. Rising interest rates will impact sales in a modest fashion as well. Sellers are already starting to reduce asking prices if their property is sitting. These price reductions are happening state-wide. Sellers always get ahead of the market in asking prices. These reductions do not mean a drop in value, but reflect a lower price increase in average pricing. 

For the first time in years, lots and land sales increased 30% year to year. There is more building and asking prices have dropped to a level where buyers see value and opportunity. We think that pricing for land will be strong in 2017, especially westside land. A note of caution still exists for land parcels within the ordinance overlay. 

High-end existing built homes, vineyards, and wineries all experienced a bump in activity over 2015. Agricultural buyers are going after already planted vineyards. The water restrictions make existing properties more valuable. Million dollar homes are reasonably priced and certainly appear to be good deals when compared to the strong residential prices. More existing wineries will sell in 2017 because building from scratch is a non-starter for many reasons. 

In 2017, we will see the State of California begin the management process of the Paso Robles Basin as well as the other impacted basins in California. The first step of this State implemented process will be raising revenue from basin inhabitants to design a sustainability plan. In addition, we will see some metering of wells in the basin. 

North County tourism is booming. Our wineries are selling wine at a decent clip. Commercial activity continues to move forward at a steady pace. Atascadero has languished behind the commercial pace as compared to Paso Robles. Industrial activity is good based on user demand. Home rents are very strong. 

North County is an inbound destination for tourists and urban refugees looking to relocate on a permanent or part-time basis. We think that high urban prices coupled with baby boomer retirees could create a sustained demand for the North County lifestyle we love so much. A couple visits from San Jose and they live in a two-million dollar home they bought 30 years ago for $200,000. These folks are 60 years old with a million-dollar plus 401K. That aforementioned phenomenon is happening everywhere. Some of these people are leaving the State but we see them walk into our doors at RE/MAX. We are a great value. Maybe better than ever.
