Wow, look at the amazing view from my new Riviera listing coming on the market soon.
I can look at this all day! This home is charming and comfortable. The 1920’s craftsman’s design features lots of windows, providing amazing light and allows feature homeowners to take advantage of the cooling ocean breeze. Grand is the perfect location; where you get the view and convenience of being close to everything.
The kids are back at school and most of us are getting back into a new routine of drop offs and pick-ups…but all good fun. So how is the Real Estate Market holding up? Let’s check it out!
As I look at sales this year compared to last year in Santa Barbara we are seeing less homes coming on the market, down 5.1% this year compared to last year. The median list price is up 7.5% to $1,495,000 and the median sales price is also up 6.5% to $1,253,000. We have had 786 single family homes sell through August, which is a little ahead of last year’s 741. There is still a lot of buyer competition for homes that are well priced in good neighborhoods. The old saying of location, location, location is as important as ever.
Santa Barbara has an incredible and involved community. It’s one of the reasons I feel in love with this county! The community finds way to educated, celebrate, and bring the whole family to an outing. Every year Parks & Recreation offers a week of free classes! These classes vary from different activities and age groups, but are focused around trying a new form of exercise. Santa Barbara county has a numerous amount of studios and fitness classes to chose from, so it’s such a great opportunity to have a week to try out different classes and meet with different instructors.
