Our SB Summer Guide is Back! Our Current Listings, Santa Barbara & Santa Ynez Valley Real Estate Market Stats

Hello friends and welcome to summer in Santa Barbara! Can you believe that we are nearly half way through 2018? It sure seems as though the years are going by faster and faster!  While we are experiencing our typical June gloom in Santa Barbara, the Santa Ynez Valley is full of sunshine.  With the Thomas fire and the mud debris behind us, this would be a good time for you to check with your insurance carrier to make sure that your home is properly insured.  Do you have enough coverage?  Do you know what it would cost to rebuild? Does your policy pay for for secondary housing if you have to evacuate? Does your insurance cover new code requirements and upgrades if you have to rebuild?  When was the last time you spoke to your insurance carrier?  Do you know what your home is worth today to properly have enough coverage?  If you need an update on what your home is worth, please feel free to contact us.

March 2018 Real Estate Roundup

So much has been happening over the past few months. We have experienced and been affected by the largest wildfire in California history and endured tragedy with the mud and debris flow destroying so many homes and taking of the precious lives of family and friends.  Through all this, we have grown and shared the rebuilding of our community. We are truly Montecito (and Santa Barbara) strong. Through all this, we continue to move forward. Over the past 4 weeks, real estate has seen a jump in activity. It will be interesting to see how we move ahead with the new tax laws and rising interest rates. As always, we welcome your calls, questions, referrals and recommendations.

January 2018 Market Stats, Open Houses & More

Dear Friends,

While we would like to say, Happy New Year to all of you, we find that our hearts are full of sadness as we watched the destruction from the Thomas fire in December and then the recent massive mudslide and disaster in Montecito.  As of today, there are still two people missing and many of us have lost our friends, family and a real estate colleague.  The loss and damage of so many homes in Montecito will stay with us for a long time to come.

However, over the past few weeks, we have also seen so much strength, bravery, commitment, friendship, caring and love for our community. We do hope that we are turning the corner and that 2018 will be a happy and healthy year for all of us.  As we look ahead to the upcoming year in real estate we will keep you up-to-date as we see how our new tax laws will affect us. 

If you or someone you know needs help finding rental listings during this time, please contact us directly, you can also visit the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors website which now displays both furnished and unfurnished rentals in the wake of the disaster. If you would like more information on how you can help victims of the Thomas Fire and Flood or if you or someone you know is a victim who needs important information moving forward, you can go here
