The dream of living on the ocean. For most, this is the ultimate…especially if it is here in our wonderful home of Santa Barbara. Fresh air, pounding waves, sand at your toes…
With 2009 being a pretty tough year for oceanfront real estate sales in the Santa Barbara, Carpinteria and Montecito areas, 2010 has seen solid sales for most of the year. Prices on average have come down anywhere from 35-40% from their peak in 2007, but now seem to hit good stable price benchmarks.
