The Spanish Colonial Revival architecture style was started at the beginning of the 20th century. The style was first used in the Spanish colonies that later were turned into American cities. It is often found in California, and Santa Barbara adopted it following the 1925 quake. Originally, the movement was started by architect George Washington Smith who relocated to Montecito and made it popular. The constructions in El Pueblo Viejo remind of ancient Rome and Paris, and maintain its historical roots. Spanish architecture comes from Andalusia, and in Santa Barbara, its influence is a result of the available materials with the natural environment. Kenny Slaught says this architecture comes from simplicity and great craftsmanship. The city’s structures are sun oriented, and the predominant colors are orange, white, red and yellow.

The JOBS (Jumpstart Our Business Startup) Act of 2012 allowed the peer-to-peer lending services to be created, and those needing money to buy or develop properties had more options in finding a sponsor. Previously, borrowing money from an accredited entity was not legal. To become an accredited party, one must have a net worth of $1 million (excluding his own residence), or earn at least $200,000 per year. If applying with their spouse, they must earn together at least $300,000 per year. According to Kenny Slaught, everyone is now free to participate in the debt and equity financing, while the loan’s interest turns into income. Additionally, there’s no need to use a bank for the purpose. Sponsors and property owners can now use the internet to check on their assets, see how they perform and find new investment opportunities.

The adoption of the Jumpstart Our Business Startup (JOBS) Act back in 2012 allowed crowdfunding (or peer-to-peer lending services) in California to emerge. As such, sponsors had even more ways to raise capital to buy and develop properties. Before this law was adopted, it was illegal to advertise or openly ask for funds from accredited entities. Anyone can become an accredited investor if they meet these criteria: having a net worth of 1 million USD in which their personal homes are not included, having an annual income of at least 200,000 USD per person or at least  300,000 USD per household, and if they apply with a spouse. According to Kenny Slaught, the amendments allow campaigns and lenders to participate in the debt and equity financing directly without a bank, and turning the loans into income because of their interest. Thanks to the internet, there’s now a new way for real estate owners and lenders to use the present investment offers, use appropriate attention, and keep dashboards to track how the assets and other monetary instruments perform.
