KEYT: Commercial Real Estate Is Selling Depsite Sluggish Economy
Some of the most well known landmark properties in Santa Barbara have been sold. This despite a soft market and an economy that is still trying to recover.
The Big Yellow House built in the 1890’s is perhaps the most famous landmark property in Santa Barbara County. It became a foreclosure after numerous restaurant businesses failed here. Now it’s been sold and it’s dining days are over.
