Top 5 Sales in 2013 for The Mission Canyon Neighborhood for Santa Barbara

Mission Canyon has always been a popular spot for a quick easy entry-point for weekend foothill hiking.  It is one of the most rustically beautiful canyons we have in the Santa Barbara area, yet as we have seen can be extremely fire-prone due to heavy mature natural vegetation.  Since the fires a few years back, we are seeing a lot of new construction in the area.  Some of this new construction is then coming on the market for sale, while others are simply re-builds.  Driving around, you can see that some areas now can be scattered with multi-million dollar homes. In 2013, we saw a good amount of activity in the area.

  • Overall there were 32 sales in the area ranging in price from $472,000 to $2.65 million.
  • There are currently no pending sales.
  • There are currently 10 Active listings ranging in price from $649,000 to $3.5 million.
