February 2020 Market Update

The Santa Barbara real estate market continued to soar in February 2020 with healthy demand from local home buyers. The relative shortage of homes for sale is further highlighting this demand. The greatest variable in February is the growing threat of the Coronavirus in America, and Santa Barbara is not immune to the pandemic. As we examine past pandemics, we find minimal volatility in home prices as compared to the stock market. Thus, we are preparing for a possible decrease in transaction volume during the coming months, but we remain optimistic about the durability of Santa Barbara home values. As always, we recommend connecting with a Zia Group agent to learn how these trends may impact your specific real estate goals today.
