Sonoma County Properties asks; Is the real estate market hot in Healdsburg? The answer; YOU BET IT IS!

The real estate values in great little “Wine Country” towns like Healdsburg and Sebastopol have stayed fairly consistent throughout the overall economic downturn we have experienced since 2007. These towns took a hit in real estate values but not nearly as hard as bigger towns and bedroom communities like Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park did. Over the last couple of years we have seen tremendous in demand. That coupled with low inventory has pushed prices and I can confidently say that we are very close to the values of 2005.

Our Sunnyvale Dr. Healdsburg listing this spring is a great example. As usual, we did our homework and priced this property very competitively with every other property listed in Healdsburg. It was a beautifully clean, single level property of approximately 2400 sq ft of living area, bamboo floors, remodeled granite kitchen, and three nice baths on one third of an acre. It was a mile from the Healdsburg Square [Read more…]
