How's the Market?

Updated: Jun 8, 2023

We have been seeing a steady uptick in new listings. Even with the holiday weekend, all of the Santa Barbara market is showing signs of good activity, mirroring a more typical market where buyers are taking their time and great properties still sell quickly and for impressive prices.

In Montecito, 6 New Listings came on the market at all different price points, the highest being $22,750,000 and the lowest was $2,985,000. There were 7 Closed Sales last week, which is slightly up from the previous week - one of the highlights was 166 Butterfly Lane. This charming Spanish Colonial gem sold in August 2021 for $3.9M and the owner extensively restored the property and just sold it for nearly $1.8M more in less than 2 years - that is a 46% increase. Another notable sale was 1045 Cold Springs Road which sold in late 2020 for $4,795,000 and after a stunning renovation by Marc Appleton, just sold for $15,900,000 - a whopping 231% increase. The message in this is that buyers will pay massive premiums for beautifully renovated homes.

It's hard to believe June is just around the corner. From what I am seeing, it looks like we are in for continued overcast skies and a "slowish" but steady real estate market with occasional bright surprises for the next few months.
