As you may have guessed, if you're wanting a "newer home" on a larger lot, it's going to be at a higher-than-median price. You didn't mention a Price Range that you're wanting to stay within, so it's hard to say just how many homes might meet your criteria. But 0.05 acres is not very big, so it's very easy to find larger lots than that. I'd be happy to give you a tour of the area whenever you're in our beautiful Sonoma County! This will be a great time to be a Buyer--in 2008!
