If I were buying a home in Sonoma today (February 18, 2021) I would lean toward the properties shown below (click on the addresses for more photos and information):
17524 Balsam Avenue in Sonoma is a 896sf 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home on 4944sf lot in the Fetters Hot Springs neighborhood in Sonoma, located just under 3 miles North West of the Sonoma Plaza. This charming neighborhood is full of mature oaks and period architecture.
18350 First Avenue in Sonoma is just a little closer (about 2.4 miles North West) to the Plaza, in the Boyes Hot Springs neighborhood, is a 1724sf 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home on a 7000sf lot with a private pool!
104 El Portola Drive in Sonoma would be my choice if I wanted a project or to build some equity. It is currently a 1560sf 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home on almost 1/3 flat, usable, acre.
