The rule of thumb in Santa Barbara is $800 per room. However, if you are getting more than a room (kitchen, LR, garage, yard space) then that number can go up. The neighborhood and the home's proximity to downtown SB vs Goleta is also a factor. If you have a specific address in mind I could do some additional research for you.
