Sonoma County Fall Fun

Holiday Fun in Sonoma County

The holiday season is here in Sonoma County, and with it, the expected quieting of real estate activity as the focus shifts to holiday gatherings, seeing friends and family, and warm celebrations.

Buying or selling a property may not be top of mind for you with all the other festivities this month, but there is something to be said for listing your home during the quiet of winter: there’s less competition on the market, and buyers who are still actively looking are serious buyers.

Homes that go into contract during the second half of December typically wouldn’t close escrow until sometime in January—what a way to kick off 2024! Food for thought, along with all the other holiday delicacies.

Should You “Wait & See”? ?

Autumn is upon us and we’re in the midst of the post-Labor Day / pre-holidays bump in the real estate market – a window of time that’s coming to a close soon!

One of the questions I’ve been getting a lot lately is, “Should I wait and see what interest rates do next year or jump in the market now?”

A valid question for both buyers and sellers.

Before sharing my perspective, I think it’s wise to look at what’s happening in the market.

? Fresh Eggs, Wine Walks & Fall Fun!

It’s October in Sonoma County, and I’m ready for all things fall! ?

From cooling temps and changing leaves, to cozy sweaters and decorating for the holidays —I can’t wait! Can you?

Fall is the world’s way of embracing change and often prompts us to reconsider our own routine and home life. Maybe that means adopting a new healthy habit, getting up earlier to make the most of shorter days, or even a change of address.

? In Sonoma County, autumn is so much more than pumpkin spice lattes…

For those of us who have the great pleasure of residing in the wine country throughout the seasons, we are undoubtedly spoiled. With unparalleled views of rolling hills, amber skies at sunset, and the smell of crisp, fresh air during fall — the wine country experience falls nothing short of stunning. Now that autumn is in full swing, we get to indulge not only in a beautiful display of colors, but we also reap the season’s newest crops. Here, autumn is so much more than pumpkin spice lattes. With most of Sonoma County’s restaurants committed to the farm-to-fork philosophy, we can be sure dishes will be made with this season’s freshest harvest: apples, dates, figs, pears, squash, and eggplant, to name a few. And with a vast choice of wines to top it all off… Really, what more can we ask for?
