I also believe that Spring is the ideal time to buy a home, obviously not every Spring, but if you are considering moving and getting a fresh new start, doesn't Spring just feel like home-buying season?
Everyone has their own opinions of what their dream home is, however I think that most "dream homes" would include similar qualifications....
Location is important.
This varies from town to town but in general, you want to be in a community that you feel safe in and can connect to your neighbors... whether they are a few feet away or a couple miles.

Comfort is key.
Making a house a home requires a certain level of warmth and coziness. In some houses you need to create that cozy filling with interior decor and modifications... in other homes, it comes already built in.
Luxury is lovely.
Finding a home that feels luxurious is always important, finding one that doesn't have the matching luxurious price tag is a huge bonus! Living in home that you are proud to show off, but knowing that you didn't have to break the bank to get there is something you can feel proud of.
These are just a few of the things on the top of my list in choosing the perfect home, and when our office got the listing for 53 Valley Station Circle in Buellton, I realized that it checked off all of my requirements.
The Santa Ynez Valley has no shortage of luxury homes and incredible ranches, and they are without a doubt fun to see and dream of living in. However, there are beautiful, well maintained neighborhoods, with homes prices more within reach, and let me tell you, the homes do not skimp on anything.
One neighborhood that is on our list of great family neighborhoods would be Valley Station.
In the heart of Buellton, close to everything you need, tucked off of Highway 246, you will find a small community of homes, perfectly designed for family living and entertaining. The neighbors are neighborly and you will, literally, find yourself asking to borrow a cup of sugar on occasion. Everyone knows each other and watches over each others children as they play and ride their bikes in the street and in the community playground.
Being that the single street in the neighborhood does not go through to anywhere else other than the homes, there is little to no traffic and if anyone ends up in the neighborhood that doesn't belong there, they will not go unnoticed.
The homes in this neighborhood are all 2 story homes with approximately 1900 sq. feet. With common space downstairs and bedrooms upstairs. With a large, open kitchen, fireplace, glamorous master bath and beautiful hardwood floors, you will find yourself forgetting that you didn't pay a million for your home!
If you are in the market for a home in the SYV, I highly recommend taking a look at 53 Valley Station Circle. This 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, two story, large floor plan home, is all you need and more, and with a an updated backyard with synthetic grass and koi pond, refaced river rock fireplace, and walk-in master closet, you will not be disappointed.
