Here are the latest statistical numbers for monthly inventory of Santa Barbara properties for sale, combined with new listings and closed sales. The constant is simply that new listings are down and our inventory continues to lag behind the demand of buyers. Even as we now approach the X-mas holidays, there are numerous buyers out there looking and waiting. After roughly 5 years of the Santa Barbara real estate market being a predominantly buyers market, we have completely switched here in the last few months.
Sellers are now able to sell their homes “easily” at market price, often with multiple offers. Even “market priced” homes are getting bid up somewhat much of the time and thus setting another higher market price point.
