Our SB Summer Guide is Back! Our Current Listings, Santa Barbara & Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Market Stats
Hello friends and welcome to summer in Santa Barbara! Can you believe that we are nearly half way through 2018? It sure seems as though the years are going by faster and faster! While we are experiencing our typical June gloom in Santa Barbara, the Santa Ynez Valley is full of sunshine. With the Thomas fire and the mud debris behind us, this would be a good time for you to check with your insurance carrier to make sure that your home is properly insured. Do you have enough coverage? Do you know what it would cost to rebuild? Does your policy pay for for secondary housing if you have to evacuate? Does your insurance cover new code requirements and upgrades if you have to rebuild? When was the last time you spoke to your insurance carrier? Do you know what your home is worth today to properly have enough coverage? If you need an update on what your home is worth, please feel free to contact us.
