Home for Rent

If you’re a renter in Sonoma County, you’ve probably noticed that the rental market has gone as haywire as the real estate market: prices are rising across the board. Also, it would seem that you can’t pick up a newspaper without reading about yet another eviction, renters being unfairly treated, or another rent hike.

These stories are enough to make even the most optimistic individual give up hope, but they also may mean that it’s time to look beyond apartments and right into houses. There are a number of homes that are currently available for rent, and some of them are privately owned as second homes or investment properties.

Here are six houses currently looking for renters, all $2,500/month or less. Imagine – no shared walls and a yard for your pets;
