First Quarter - Montecito Market Newsletter

Updated: Apr 20, 2020




What’s next? Now that we are all used to so much time at home, are we going to enter a new world of “upsizing” and “multi-generational” homes post COVID? Maybe.

For the last several years, the over-riding trend has been away from large estates and into smaller luxury properties that had all the amenities of grand estates without the upkeep. I believe that this trend will continue although it will be complemented by a re-purposing of larger estates into more modern, smart homes. A life of health, ease and security is what is trending now for affluent buyers and Montecito offers a plethora of housing options that are able to host extended family and friends for short and longer periods.

I am staying out of the prediction business, but based on the calls and emails I am receiving, buyers are still planning to make a move to Montecito when they find the right property. If you’re interested in getting a current “pulse” on Montecito real estate, please get in touch - I have lots of inside information to share about the who, what and where in Montecito.
