The HOP (Home Ownership Podcast) Episode 137

With Host, Village Properties Realtor, David Charles Allen:

Again, the number of new listings in Santa Barbara was in the 40's.  Interest rates remained practically the same with 30 - year jumbo loans at 6 % and 30 - year conventional loans at 6.25 %.  Patti and David warned about a number of real estate scams to watch out for before David reviewed two neighborhoods in Santa Barbara: Mission Canyon, and the Santa Barbara Riviera.

The Santa Barbara Riviera properties are more expensive and many of them have amazing views.  Mission Canyon in contrast is set a little further back and is known for its quiet serenity.  In the past, due to fires, insurance rates could be quite high.  

At then end of the episode, David and Patti discusssed their fur babies and had a discussion on dog's eyesight and how it varies from ours.
