It seemed as though Sonoma County housing prices had hit a brick wall – there was no budging from a median price range of $575,100 and it felt as though it would be stuck there or the foreseeable future. So when I started compiling my notes for today’s  post only to see a huge jump in the median price – “fueled by strong demand and tight inventory” – to $619,000 I was shocked.

According to the report, “It was the first time in nearly 12 years that the local market set a new high record. The March median price exceeded the former all-time peak of $619,000 reached in August 2005 amid a national housing bubble.”

So, in other words, the new median price is double what it was five years ago.

Scroll through the gallery to see what’s currently listed in the new median range of $639,000.
