As July begins to wind down and kids are getting ready for their last few weeks of summer break, it would seem that everything else should slow down, too. However, the opposite has happened in the real estate market. Recently, the median home price in Sonoma County rose once again, and it now stands at incredible $600,000.
For those who’ve saved to buy a home in the median price range, this may come as a surprise after the recent raise to $550k, but there are still plenty of homes available in this range that won’t break the bank if you’ve been saving for this very circumstance.
Real estate is a fickle thing, and with more homes being built throughout the North Bay, homebuyers may want to wait for prices to drop before buying. For now, here’s what’s new on the market this week:
931 Baird Rd, Santa Rosa – $619,000
This is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in the Rincon Valley area of Santa Rosa. There’s 1,300 square feet of interior space, and an already drought-tolerant front yard to make the drought easier on new homeowners.
The backyard has a small area of grass, but it’s still a good size for entertaining.
751 Riesling Rd, Petaluma – $599,000
Built in 1995, this home is relatively new at 21 years old. With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms it’s set up as a starter home for a family.
The 1,739 square foot interior gives a spacious feeling inside.
220 Golf Green Ln, Santa Rosa – $639,000
This 1980 home is only 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, but that may make it ideal for newlyweds or a retired couple.
Location is always important, and this backyard won’t disappoint a homeowner who desires a nature view.
5127 Oak Park Way, Santa Rosa – $585,000
This 1968 home is two stories, with 2,200 square feet inside. It also has room on the side to comfortably park an RV, so a family who enjoys camping may decide the $585k is a good investment.
While not recently updated, the kitchen still has plenty of storage for dishes and dry goods needed for a larger family.
308 Homewood Ct, Cloverdale – $610,000
This 2001 home looks much newer than its age, and with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, it has plenty of room for new additions to any family.
Curved arches, recessed lighting, and wood flooring give this home a thoroughly modern feeling.
