Montecito Real Estate – Luxury Market Update First 10 weeks in 2012

After a relatively slower luxury high end real estate market here in 2011 in the Santa Barbara area, 2012 has started out with a fair amount of activity in our luxury high end market.  For purposes of this post, I will be referring to the luxury high end real estate market as home values of $7,500,000 and above. In the Santa Barbara area, the areas in which we find these higher values tend to be pretty much centralized in Montecito, Hope Ranch, along the coastline / beach front or on a larger Ranch.  Additionally, most of the sales and activity tend to occur in Montecito simply because of the available inventory. So far in the first 10 weeks for 2012 we have seen:
  1. Fourteen new listings come on the market above $7.5 million, ranging in price from $7.65 million to $22 million
  2. Two listings that are currently pending sale...asking prices of $12.5 million and $22 million respectively
  3. Three closed sales ranging in price from $9.5 million to $19.5 million
Here below are a sample of some wonderful photos of these luxury high end real estate sales so far here in the first 10 weeks.
