How's the Market?
“Patience is not the ability to wait but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.” - Joyce Meyer
One of the most powerful assets in real estate has to be patience. The last few years properties have flown off the market, the good, (the bad!?) and everything in between. We are settling back into a more normal market where properties take a few weeks before anything REALLY happens, but that does not necessarily reflect something being wrong with the property.
The average days on market in Santa Barbara County so far this year is 38. This is higher compared to last year (24 DOM) and 2021 (33 DOM). However, in 2020 the average days on market was 72, which is almost double what we are seeing today. So, if a property is on the market for several weeks or more compared to 2022 and 2021, remember, those markets were unprecedented and in my opinion we are now in a normal market!
