Carpinteria CA. Luxury Real Estate Sales - Statistics Through Sept 15th, 2009

Here and there I am proposed various questions from clients about the luxury market here in Carpinteria CA., such as where are the most famous homes located and/or what is the most expensive home to sell this year or any year for that matter.  Many times though it is as "simple" as what is the true definition of luxury real estate here in the Carpinteria area.  The answer is that there is no exact definition of luxury real estate and this varies greatly depending on the circumstances, whom you talk to, location in our town etc.  But in order to provide some statistics, I am going to break it down with price being the simple parameter. -- Thus for our purposes here, I am going to refer to the luxury market here in Carpinteria as any sale over the $4 million mark.

During the first 8 months of 2009, there were a total of 4 closed sales of luxury single family homes here in the Carpinteria area.  As of Sept 15th, 2009, there were no properties in this luxury market that were pending sale (under contract). The highest sale within this luxury market was a true beach style home located directly on the sand with a main residence and a guest home.  A contemporary style home that has been extensively remodeled in the main residence, but not much done to the guest home.  The property was located at 3447 Padaro Lane, Carpinteria CA., 93013 and sold in March for $6,350,000.
