A beautiful fall in Santa Barbara

With sunny skies and mid-80 degree temperatures it’s hard to believe that fall will be descending on Santa Barbara next week. Of course epic weather is not unusual for the area even through the beginning months of winter. It’s a great time of year to be visiting and looking at properties, especially those with fantastic views. If you’ve not had the opportunity to experience Santa Barbara at this time of year I highly recommend that you do.

Following are a few upcoming activities you can add to your outdoor calendar in-between house hunting and enjoying the great Mediterranean climate Santa Barbara has to offer.

California Lemon Festival at Girsh Park in Goleta – Sept. 20 from 10am-6pm and Sept. 21 from 10am-5pm

SOL Food Festival at Vera Cruz Park in Santa Barbara – Sept. 27 from 10am-8pm

California Avocado Festival in Downtown Carpinteria – Oct. 3 from 11am-10pm, Oct. 4 from 10am-10pm and Oct. 5 from 10am-6pm

Santa Barbara Harbor & Seafood Festival at Santa Barbara’s Harbor – Oct. 11 from 10am-5pm

Santa Barbara Vintners Celebration of Harvest Weekend at the Old Mission Santa Ines in Solvang – Oct. 10 from 5-10pm, Oct. 11 from 11am-10pm and Oct. 12 from 10am-8pm

Santa Barbara Beer Festival at Elings Park in Santa Barbara – Oct. 18 from 12-4pm

As fall begins home inventory in the area is looking good and buyer competition has tapered some. I hope to see you out and about enjoying the phenomenal weather, scenery, activities and real estate opportunities that the coming season is geared to bring.
