In the 'Full House' Spinoff, DJ Can Afford to Stay in San Francisco Thanks to Prop 13

Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, John Stamos confirmed the rumors that have been swirling for quite some time: A Full House spinoff is officially in the works, and 13 episodes will air on Netflix. The spinoff, produced by active Instagram user Stamos, will kick off with a reunion of sorts of the late 80s/early 90s ABC sitcom, and then begin following (narrative resonance alert!) a recently widowed and pregnant DJ as she raises her two boys with the help of sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy, heretofore Aunt Kimmy, we presume. The show will be called Fuller House, a move seemingly calculated to piss off grammarians (unless DJ's doomed husband's surname turns out to be, groan, Fuller). The house itself—which is either in Pacific Heights or Vis Valley or maybe Alamo Square?—will be reconstructed for the new set, because early in the new series, the older generation bequeaths the house to DJ, saving her the trouble of house hunting in this market or, gasp, moving to the Richmond.

Prop 13 catches much flak for creating two classes of real-estate haves and have-nots, and DJ's fortunes have landed her squarely in the former camp. Thanks to Prop 13, 1882 Girard—the fictional address for the facade at 1709 Broderick—is safe from a fair-market property tax increase, which DJ (whom we find out is a veterinarian) and aspiring Elvis impersonator musician Stephanie could ill afford. The Tanner sisters can also thank their lucky stars (and legal fine print) for Prop 58, which ensures that transfers of property between parents and children are exempt from reassessment. So long as DJ lives at 1882 Girard as a permanent residence, the $1 million cap on transfers doesn't apply. So ... who's up for a family trip to the assessor-recorder's office?
