January 2018 Market Stats, Open Houses & More
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.
