Weekly Market Snapshot
It felt slower in Montecito last week, but that is not because of a lack of demand, it's due to the scarcity of supply. As the story goes, there are not enough homes on the market to keep up with those wanting to call Montecito "home." This is why some are relying heavily on their real estate agents to find them off market homes that the owners are willing to sell. Two big off market sales took place last week - 699 San Ysidro Road ($28,000,000) and 857 Picacho Lane ($9,500,000). The summer has almost come to an end, kids are back in school and buyers in all price ranges are still on the hunt.
