There were three homes in our price range in Sonoma and two are on Verano Avenue. 835 Verano is large at 2,080 square-feet and has a lovely big backyard, but 629 Verano gets an honorable mention because pets are allowed. We chose 18070 Mulberry in Boyes Hot Springs at $2,375 because it is newly remodeled with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, new flooring, lighting and bathrooms. It also has a large backyard and comes with a washer and dryer.  It is 1,200 square feet but it is cute, clean and cozy.
