Today at the MLS meeting, we had two speakers from the County of Santa Barbara come and give some much needed understanding and clarity about how the new ADU (accessory dwelling unit) ordinance is going to work when it becomes effective later this month. Tomorrow I'll launch into an overview of that and give you some helpful links to make your own headway into figuring out if adding a ADU to your property will work for your needs or plans.
340 Helena Street, Los Alamos (3/2 on .11 of an acre) Was 529K with a new price of 499K. Those shopping in the under 500K range, which is pretty much nothing except for condos, should beat a path to this one. Good location, corner of Helena and Perkins. Corner lots create more light inside and more sky views too. Less neighbor impacts is always good. This home is very clean with a magical little garden. You can't beat it for the money. A first home to be proud of, a second home to look forward to visiting or investment. It works for all three.
2866 Santa Barbara Avenue, Los Olivos (3/3 on .40 of an acre) Listed at $1,080,000 and sold final for $1,050,000. Only 11 days on market this time around.
1335 Deer Trail Lane, Santa Ynez (main house and legal second unit on 1 acre) Listed at $1,250,000 and sold final for $1,200,000. 65 days on market this time around.
