The HOP (Home Ownership Podcast) Episode 140

Week of 6-3-23

Village Property Realtor and host of the HOP, David Charles Allen, reports on interest rates and the latest Santa Barbara sales stats.  Thirty-year jumbo loans are at 6% this week and thirty-year conforming loans are at 6.5%.  

Santa Barbara sales stats are as follows:

  • 27 New Listings
  • 14 Price Changes
  • 24 Pending
  • 5 Back on on the Market
  • 4 Coming Soon

Patti and David discussed real estate mogul, Barbara Corcoran and her recent prediction that the Best Time to Purchase a Property is RIGHT NOW!  She believes that if people wait until rates go down, more more buyers will be competing--and the bidding wars will be back!  Plus, she reminds us that when interest rates drop, people can always refinance their loans.
