The HOP: Home Ownership Podcast brought to you by Hub for Podcasting and David Charles Allen.

The HOP Episode 86: David Charles Allen discusses the weather, waves, and real estate in Santa Barbara! Interest rates remain low; 3.75% for 30-year fixed and 3.375% for 30-year jumbo loans. There were 42 new listings this week and 40 went pending, with very little build up of available properties for sale. A listener asked about the reliability of Zillow Zestimates and David explained that they were often far offbase. The biggest shortfall of Zillow, however, is the fact that you don't find out about properties that are coming soon. When working with a realtor, you're likely to learn about properties a couple weeks before they're listed and that time period can help you prepare your offer.
