Festival Time - Featuring Food and Drink!
We love our food here in San Francisco, and our libations too. Add to that the opportunity for a celebratory gathering and you have many options in upcoming weeks to check out! The popular SF Beer Week is about to kick off, running from February 6th-15th. There are loads of different beer-centric events to check out (more than 600 in fact); plenty of options for the novice beer drinker to the connoisseur and all the amateurs in between.

If fermented grape juice is more your style, the Union Street Wine Walk is just around the corner (February 12th). This fun and festive tasting event is in its fifth annual outing. A $30 ticket gets you a wine glass and a map leading to all the available tastings along the route. It’s a fun chance to try new wines and explore the charms of Union and Fillmore Streets.

Also upcoming is a slow food focused event in the Ferry Building aiming to raise awareness and enjoyment of conscious eating in the Bay Area. Attendees can stroll the marketplace and enjoy seasonal hors d'oeuvres and local wines while benefitting Slow Food San Francisco. And a food-focused film festival is coming to the City later this spring. In addition to showcasing films from around the world on the subject of food and farming, there are plans to include some tasty local bites paired with each day's films.

Nearly every week a different neighborhood in the City is highlighted on our Facebook page. A video tour is typically shared as well as market charts that show median sales price information for the past decade and market update videos that show in a minute and a half what real estate has been up to in that neighborhood the past month. This past week we got to know a bit more about the neighborhood Glen Park.

The "Airbnb Law" is Now in Effect

The "Airbnb Law" is Now in Effect
Okay, so it isn’t just about Airbnb, but the popularity of the website certainly heightened the conversation in the City, and last October new legislation was passed to legalize vacation rentals for less than 30 days in San Francisco. Starting last week, legal short term rentals are now officially allowed in San Francisco - but they come with a slew of new rules managing that legality.

Property owners and tenants can now apply to register their permanent residence as a short-term residential rental. There is a $50 fee associated with registration (good for two years), and registration must be completed in person. Additionally, a legally registered listing must be the primary residence of the individual, and be occupied by them 75% of the year. This means that one can share their home space while living there with no restrictions, but when it comes to renting out the entire home there is a limit.

There is, of course, still concern about San Francisco’s ability to enforce this legislation moving forward. Earlier this past week the planning department had about 130 appointments of registration hopefuls on the books - but that hardly scratches the surface of the more than 5,000 San Francisco listings that appeared on the site last year. For now, the planning department will continue to observe how the new process evolves.
