Last year, 31 people paid less than $300,000 to purchase a single family home in Sonoma County. Almost all were in lower Russian River or west county area. By contrast, the 10 lowest price homes that have come on the market since January 1, 2021 start at 479K and go to $685,000. Fortunately, for bargain house hunters, the year is young and many buyers are holding their homes off the market until spring. This first batch of listings is also biased towards Santa Rosa which has a higher average selling price.
This Cloverdale 3/1 on a large lot leads off the New Year at $479K.
My favorite listing of the new year is a 14 acre apple orchard in Sebastopol. Historic, charming, and a perfect rural getaway for buyers in the $2.5 million price range.
As a Healdsburg-based agent, I can’t forget to mention the extensive family compound on 2/3 of an acre in walking distance to the Healdsburg Plaza.
