Reasons to Choose a Condo Instead of a House in Santa Cruz

Reasons to Choose a Condo Instead of a House in Santa CruzThe city of Santa Cruz has many amazing condo properties. If you are trying to decide between purchasing a condo or a single-family home in Santa Cruz here are a few reasons why you might lean more toward purchasing the condo.

Availability

If you are hoping to live right inside the Santa Cruz city limits then finding a condo may be just a little bit easier than a single-family property. Often in convenient walkable locations, there are more multifamily properties as compared to single-family properties. If you have not ruled out a condo and you want a walkable home then you may have an easier time finding a condo.

Price tag

Condo properties often come with a lower price tag as compared to a single-family home. Some would say this is because the square footage is much smaller than what is available on a single-family property. But you may be surprised to find that some condos have as much square footage as a single-family home. While larger condos do come at a steeper price higher than the more abundant smaller ones it is a possibility to find a condo with a very roomy floor plan.

Maintenance

A condo property is like a step between renting and single-family living. Owning a home puts a lot of responsibility on the owner's plate to make sure the property is running well, safe, and retains its good condition. Every single aspect of the property is the responsibility of the homeowner to maintain. This along with the price tag of a single-family home is a big extra cost and a large time requirement.

With a condo property, you are solely responsible for the property...

It is a unique spot in Santa Cruz County that offers something special all year long. The summer and the winter seasons are very different but each holds its unique appeal. Let us describe what each season is like in Capitola and why it is a great place to settle into year-round. 

Capitola Winters

Since it is still technically winter, though Spring is on the horizon, let us start with what winter is like in the beautiful small town of Capitola. 

The hustle and bustle of summer tourists and beachfront activities begin to slow and quiet after Labor Day every year in Capitola. Capitola becomes a charming laid-back beach town. Though the weather is cooler and the activities are not as frequent, the weather is still enjoyable and the sunsets, even though they come earlier are just as breathtaking. 

September and October free up the popular beaches and allow those who live here year-round to enjoy the sand and surf with a little more elbow room. It's like that feeling of your family coming for a visit. You love it and it is full of laughter and energy and fun times, but when they go back home, you can get back to a more relaxed way of living on a daily basis and enjoying your favorite space on more relaxed terms. 

The "off-season" allows for shorter wait times to get into the most iconic Capitola restaurants on any day of your choosing. The parking...

Reasons to Live Outside of Downtown Santa Cruz

Downtown Santa Cruz is easily one of the most popular areas to settle in the city for its Walkability within one of Central Coastal California's most loved cities. Santa Cruz is dynamicReasons to Live Outside of Downtown Santa Cruz and upbeat with countless things to do from amazing restaurants to great entertainment and all different kinds of shopping. It is easy to be at the beach one minute and in a museum, the next, or experience locally made ice cream and walk just a few blocks away to get the best cup of coffee you have ever tasted.

But Santa Cruz is also known as an area with highly desirable real estate that comes with an expected increase in the market value of homes.

Quieter neighborhoods

Things to Consider if Your Santa Cruz Home Isn't Selling

Things to Consider if Your Santa Cruz Home Isn't SellingIf you have listed your Santa Cruz home for sale and the home listing has expired it is understandable that you may be frustrated, disappointed, or confused as to why your home isn't selling. Especially during a seller's market with low inventory. Here are some questions to ask about your home selling experience to help you decide what actions to take next with your Santa Cruz home.

Was the Home marketed well?

A first impression in many scenarios is incredibly important and the first impression of your home to buyers matters significantly. You want to make sure that your home is ready to show at its best and that it has been presented to as many Santa Cruz homebuyers as possible. It is hard for buyers to be interested in a home and make an offer on it if they are not aware is for sale or if there's something about it that seems offputting in listing photos.

When a home is for sale you want to do your best to make it stand out and have it catch the eye of a buyer. But you can't catch a buyer's eye if a buyer isn't seeing the home. You want to make sure you are hiring the right local professional help that will get the word out that your home is available for sale and you want to get your home freshened up and ready to show at its best.

A great real estate agent will help you to prepare your home to be seen both inside and out and will help you to make the online listing look enticing and place it where it is easily seen to attract a buyer's eye and attract as many buyers as possible.

Is the home priced well?

One of the biggest setbacks to selling a home within a fair amount of time is making...

Recycling Materials From DIY Projects in Your Santa Cruz Home

Recycling Materials From DIY Projects in Your Santa Cruz HomeAs you make improvements around your Santa Cruz home you may find that there are extra materials left over from those projects. Sometimes you will want to retain some extra materials in case you need to repair but in some cases, you may not need as much material as is left over.

What can you do with these leftover materials? Some may fit into the garbage, some may not, and some may be allowed to go into your regular garbage but some may require special actions to unload the product. Here are some helpful tips for getting rid of scraps from home improvements in your Santa Cruz home.

Wood Scraps

Several different projects require the use of wood and the scraps can pile up quickly as often projects using wood materials require cutting wood down into custom shapes and sizes to fit your project. If you don't have a use for them and they are taking up a lot of space you can unload wood scraps in many different ways.

For larger pieces that might be reused for other projects, you could consider selling them on social media and other reselling groups such as Offer Up. You could also consider donating scraps to salvage yards and charities like Habitat for Humanity. You can also offer the scraps for free on a social media site or in a buy-nothing group. If a wood scrap is small enough it can be added to a compost pile.

Tile

Tile is a great material to retain scraps for repairs in your home. If you have a significant amount of tile scraps or have removed tile from an old...

New Construction Santa Cruz County Homes- Which Type is best for You?

Some Santa Cruz homebuyers are looking for brand-new homes that they can move right into and not need to plan to fix anything for a few years. When it comes to purchasing a new construction home there are different options to consider. This can include a spec home, a track home, or a custom home. Let's look at the details of each one to help you determine which new construction home could be right for you.New Construction Santa Cruz County Homes- Which Type is best for You?

Spec home

A spec home is a new construction home that was built without a specific style of buyer in mind. This type of home is not built within a plant community but is built on property that a developer may have already purchased but has not been developed along with land surrounding it. It could also be a plot of land that has been sitting unsold in a planned community that a developer decides to pick up and place a home on to make a bit of profit. It is a one-and-done home built simply to put a home on the lot and continue doing business.

Sometimes a spec home might be something built from a previous catalog of floorplans the builder has used in the past or it could be that the builder is unique and doesn't work with large community builds but rather works on a smaller scale to build a home here or there. It is a home in which the buyer does not pick out the overall floor plan design but may have a hand in picking out some of the finish elements if they put a purchase offer on the home before construction is complete.

Tract home

This is the most commonly thought about type of new construction home. This is a home that...

But with the right shopping strategy, there is a way to find a home in Santa Cruz that you will love for a price that you can afford to pay. Read on to discover tips for finding a home when inventory is low.

Working with local professionals

The first and best bit of advice we can give you is to work with a local real estate agent to help you find the perfect home that meets all of your needs and wants. Shopping for a home right now in Santa Cruz can feel like trying to purchase the most popular item of clothing in a store when they are having a 90% off sale. Even though homes are not at huge discounted prices there are still more buyers looking for homes than there are homes available for sale and sometimes buyers end up battling for the same home. But one trick to getting ahead of the game is to work with an agent who knows the area like the back of their hand.

A local agent has time to search for homes because it is their job. It is what they are paid to do. They can take the time to search and sometimes they don't even need to dig or go hunting for your ideal home. Sometimes they just know when a home is coming on the market or if there has been at home getting little attention that meets what you were looking for. This is because they are well-versed in the area and have formed relationships and make it their focus to be an expert in their local real estate market.

One Reason Why the Atmosphere of Santa Cruz is Calm and Creative

It is well-liked for many reasons and well-known for several attributes. Besides the surfing culture, it is known as a town with a friendly atmosphere and a great arts scene. What makes Santa Cruz calm and creative? Science says it could be the water. 

Living Near the Water Can Make a Person Calm and Creative

From the earliest recorded history, humans have attributed healing properties to natural bodies of water. For example, the early Romans looked at bathing as highly important and made a relaxing bath part of the cultural norms. Romans took a soak not only alone but with others as a form of relaxation and a good way to take time to connect with others in a calm setting. 

Using water to restore the mind body and soul was not just used in Roman culture it was also a huge part of care in Chinese medicine, Indian medicine, and many others. Water symbolized a sacred space, a place of rebirth, and a source of spiritual cleansing and salvation.

In today's culture, the water holds an equal level of popularity. Homes on the water are highly desirable, vacations to an island oasis are seen as the ultimate dream getaway, and water sports never seem to lose their popularity. Need to relax? Many people picture a soak in the hot tub or a nice warm bath.

Tips to Sell Your Santa Cruz Home in the Fall

If you are getting ready to sell a home in Santa Cruz you may be wondering if selling your home in the fall is a good plan and what you might need to do to get your home ready to sell. Any time of year can be a great time to sell a home, especially in Santa Cruz County, one of California's most desirable places to live. 

Tips for Selling Your Santa Cruz Home in the Fall

Get your home ready

When you sell anything you own you want it to look its best so it will be appealing to buyers and sell quickly. Just like you would make sure your car is clean and pristine if you were to sell it, you want to do the same thing with your Santa Cruz home. You want to start your home selling plans by getting your home ready to be seen by buyers and making it appealing to them. In the same manner that you would get your home cleaned up and ready to go for a holiday party you want to make sure you are cleaning from top to bottom and getting rid of unnecessary clutter.

In addition to having it extremely clean and tidy, you want to remove personal items and make the home look like it is on display rather than someone comfortably living in the property and loving it with no plans to leave. Allowing a buyer to be able to visualize themselves living in the home instead of visualizing how you have lived in the home is a key to helping get your home sold as quickly as possible. This is the practice of staging your home. If you need some helpful advice in staging your home a local real estate agent can do wonders to help advise you on getting your home ready to be seen by potential buyers.

Why Live Oak is a Great Place to Live

Why Live Oak is a Great a Place to LiveIf you are searching for a more budget-friendly section of Santa Cruz County to settle into Live Oak is definitely worth a look. Some people overlook Live Oak as Pleasure Point's cheaper inland compromise, but there are several reasons why purchasing a home in Live Oak is a good idea. 

Top Reasons to Buy a Home in Live Oak

Location

Yes, I did put the location at the top of the list of reasons why it is a great idea to move to Live Oak. This is why a large number of people choose not to live here, but hear me out, Live Oak is located between the cities of Capitola and Santa Cruz. Though some optimists say that Live Oak includes the coast where Pleasure Point is located, the official boundaries stop just short of the coastline. When searching for real estate in Santa Cruz County most people want locations right on the coast or within large cities near hotspots. Live Oak might seem further out but the location is still great. You are very close to the main freeway with easy access, there is extremely close proximity to Pleasure Point and the best beaches in the county, you are only minutes from those larger cities of Santa Cruz and Capitola, and there are several great hidden gems inside Live Oak itself. 

Public Parks

Live Oak is home to several community parks. These parks do not just sit unused either, the kids in Live Oak love their neighborhood parks. It is a good way to get to know other people living in the community. A popular spot run by the parks department in Live Oaks ...
