It is very easy to grab a sheet of paper and begin writing down your goals; where you want to be by the end of the 1st quarter of 2011, or by the end (7 comments)
Stay out of the Water for 72 hours! - 12/22/10 01:29 PM
Source: Channelkeeper Santa Barbara Channelkeeper is conducting weekly bacteria testing at area beaches during the winter months thanks to funding from the County of Santa Barbara (with the exception of Leadbetter, Arroyo Burro and East Beach, which are sampled by the City of Santa Barbara). A WARNING beach status is issued when one or more of the bacterial health standards are exceeded. Due to heavy rainfall expected tonight and tomorrow, which would likely result in similarly high indicator bacteria levels, we will not be re-sampling on Wednesday, December 22, and we advise people to follow the County of Santa Barbara Public (0 comments)
2010 Tax Relief Act - a Summary - 12/22/10 01:03 PM
As many of you were probably glued to the TV sets this past week awaiting Congress' decision on the Bush-era tax cuts, you saw that President Barack Obama signed the bipartisan tax package into law on Friday and ended the uncertainty - at least until 2012. This much-debated tax bill passed the Senate early last week with an 81-19 vote, and later passed through the House of Representatives 277-148. In an effort to prevent a big New Year's Day tax hike for millions of Americans, Congress inevitably made the decision to compromise and pass the legislation to President Obama. This new (0 comments)

Just Sold! 389 Wyola Road, pictured, above. As your neighbor and specialist in the Samarkand neighborhood, I am writing this annual report of sales activity. Last year I wrote that it was a “mixed market for buyers and sellers” and the same can be said for 2010. The median price for December 2010 for Santa Barbara, not including Hope Ranch/Montecito, is $864,000. As shown below, our median price in Samarkand is just around $1MM. Properties that are valued under the median and which are priced right, will sell quickly, making this a seller’s market. (0 comments)
