Here are some of the latest Santa Barbara real estate market statistics with regards to inventory, listings, sales, prices etc. for March 2012.
As the statistics show, the real estate market here in Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria is very strong and active. With the combination of fewer listings (inventory), great interest rates and buyers that are comfortable with the market….homes are selling quickly across all price points in the last 6-8 months.
The graph below depicts this overall lack of inventory in general…one of the obvious factors leading to a fairly quick market.
The immediate graph above shows a very clear picture that buyers are buying most everything on the market. Sales are up drastically pretty much across all price points. In our own office overall, we have had twice as many pending files as normal over the last 2-3 months.
