It’s BURGER WEEK, people! I know that Burger Week is not exactly real-estate-related, but it’s exciting nonetheless! That’s exactly what I told all of my Realtor friends who were gathered this week for the monthly SBAOR MLS breakfast meeting (with Todd Shea officiating, shown above). The topic this month was ADUs and SB 9, presented by Jarrett Gorin. I won’t try to paraphrase his professional wisdom here, but a few super-quick takeaways include:

  • A tiny house is not an ADU
  • It’s not easy to get an existing unpermitted building to qualify as an ADU
  • It’s realistically going to take six to eight months to get through the process once you file permits.

For more details and professional advice, ask your favorite Realtor.

In honor of Burger Week — yep, I said it again! — let’s take a look at some fantastic kitchens and eating spaces in local houses currently on the market:

100 West Valerio Street is a beautiful farmhouse-style property on Santa Barbara’s upper eastside built in 1903 and newly listed by the team at Calcagno & Hamilton. Its historic exterior belies the beautiful renovations throughout, including this kitchen:
