According to the real estate tracking firm DataQuick, California's median sales price hit $324,000 last month, which is a 3.5% increase from March. It’s also 22.7% higher than the median price was back in April 2012.
So you are right that most likely prices will keep rising.

Nope..economic cycle has turned from the bottom and heading upwards..high estimated to be 2018/2019/2020. There may be a few dips or slow downs just like the stock market but this most likely will not be a realized cost benefit to potential home buyers or sellers.

Any softening of the market will be created by rising interest rates which may influence buyer demand due to affordability. In this same regard any drop or stabilizing of prices will be offset by the cost of financing.

Only real relief to buyers is that investors are reaching the costs to profit ratio cut offs.

There are too few homes available in this area at this time compared to people looking to own and occupy to count on any real softening.

What makes Petaluma one of the best places to live is that there really is no real undesirable sections of Petaluma. Each neighborhood has its own personality and appeal.

So it depends what you are looking for in a living situation.

Do you live in Sonoma now? If so I would recommend finding out what areas have homes available and just walk around and get a feel for the town.

If you need help feel free to call or email me at

Hello Shopper

Just wondering if you are in Sonoma now and if you have seen the homes at Southbrook?

What is it that you like about this neighborhood?

If this is where you feel you want to live then it should be possible to find a home that you can afford in Southbrook.

Hope to discuss further with you

Hi Jeff,
What's your cap rate and how much cash you'd like to spend? Multi-family properties in Petaluma are in short supply. If you can expand your search to Rohnert Park, Santa Rosa, etc. you can find more and for higher cap rate. Call me 707-664-1400 @Keegan & Coppin Company. Best, Fumi ... more
