The HOP (Home Ownership Podcast) Episode 108: Hosted by Village Properties Realtor, David Charlles Allen. Sellers in Santa Barbara don’t seem very motivated to sell right now. Last week, thee were only 25 new listings and 17 price drops. Because interest rates are up, someone who sells their home may have a hard time finding a replacement home that is as nice as the one they had, without paying more each month.
