To rent or buy is a different question for each individual or family and would take a lot longer time together discussing than what I could say here via email. I would be happy to talk about your needs and situation, our market here in the Montecito and Santa Barbara area etc. if you would like and provide you with any information you need.
Also, you can learn a lot more about our town at www.SantaBarbaraRealEstateVoice.com.
