A good idea to rent before you buy. I suggest you contact our property management Co. Crown Realty Property Management at 707-255-0880. Although the rental market is pretty competitive right now, $2,000.00 will cover a nice house in a good area. I don't think you will have to pay that much for a two bedroom. I suggest either Browns Valley, Alta heights, or someplace in Old Town. Rent for a while get used to Napa and when the time is right, contact me and I will help you find something. My offer still stands even thought your intention is renting. Would welcom the opportunity to share my knowledge and love for Napa with you. let me know in advance and I will free up my schedule.
