Santa Barbara South County Sales Statistics October 2012Another spike in the Santa Barbara South County sales report for the month of October continues our streak of record real estate numbers this year. October sales grew 23% over the previous month, while numbers were up 66% over the same month last year. It also appears that closed sales picked up again this Fall, avoiding an early 4th quarter slump from years past.
