There are rentals available for under $2,500 at the The Villages Apartment Homes in Santa Rosa (Image via Woodmont Real Estate Services)

While the real estate prices have been slowly rising in Sonoma County, rentals have seemed to reach a plateau – at least for the time being. Summer months are when most people choose to move, and according to the U.S. census, August remains one of the busiest months for individuals to find new places to rent and move into.

Whether preparing for a new job, new school, or just to find a new neighborhood to call home, there are a lot of places available at $2500 a month – or less. $2,500 a month is still a lot for most of us, (we hear you),  at least many of these are roomy and include amenities that range from an in-unit washer and dryer to an attached garage.

Here is a sample of six properties currently listed, from rental homes to apartments, all from $2,500 a month or less;
