As the Santa Barbara Real Estate market has softened here in the last 18 months, the big advantage for new home buyers is that they are able to get a little more property for their $$.  Most statistics are showing that the average home here in Santa Barbara is down about 15-25% (depending on exact area) from its peak in late 2006 / early 2007.
