Want to buy a house in Santa Barbara? Better be prepared to pay the big bucks. According to Zillow, the median home price in the city is $1,164,200. It’s no wonder people are increasingly choosing to buy a house in Ventura, where the median price is less than half of what you’ll find in that coastal neighbor to the north and residences at brand-new communities like The Farm start in the high $600s.
Another number can be equally as compelling when it comes to the valleys. Not only are the Santa Clarita and San Fernando Valley typically more expensive than Ventura—especially when you compare new homes—but the temperature is also a huge factor for those who are tired of sweating it out all summer.
Blink and temps are going to be soaring over 100 degrees, where they’ll likely remain for months. But not here in Ventura. The city’s idyllic coastal setting means it stays up to 30 degrees—or more—cooler all season. Beat the heat and pick out your new home in Ventura now and you could ensure you’ll be able to own in the area’s hottest (no pun intended!) new community. Just a handful of homes remain at The Farm, Ventura County’s most popular and fastest-growing new community.
