How's the Market?

In Montecito and Santa Barbara, the real deal is often what you don't see listed. Last year, 137 homes found new owners without ever hitting the market, and this year, we're already at approximately 18 off market sales. These pocket listings are the VIP pass to discovering properties around town—accessible to just a few in-the-know.

Pocket listings give buyers an insider edge, offering a quieter, more direct path to securing their dream property without the competition of the broader market. And for sellers, pocket listings provide the advantage of targeting the right buyers discreetly, maximizing the potential for a favorable sale without the public market.

It all boils down to connections—in the real estate circles of Montecito and Santa Barbara, being well-informed and connected is the key to unlocking hidden opportunities. Reach out to us if you would like more information on current pocket listings.

Now for the latest Montecito real estate stats - the last week of March there were 6 New Listings, 4 Closed Sales and 1 Pending Sale. One of the closed sales this past week was an off market sale - 1050 Fairyway Road. Throughout the whole month of March there were 13 Closed Sales, the highest sale being 319 San Ysidro Road, an off market sale for $32M. This is very similar to the March stats from 2023, where there were 12 Closed Sales, although the highest sale in March last year was 377 Santa Rosa Lane, which closed for $14.23M. Now that we are officially done with the first quarter of 2024 we shall see how the Q2 starts out!
