The most sought product line in real estate in our region these days is still the newly constructed home inclusive of homes built within the last five years. With so many channels of medium dangling the
newest architectural styles and finishes in front of us - along with incorporating the updated building code requirements of constructing homes to a more resilient and efficient standard – consumers are
clamoring for more new homes and there are just not enough to go around. 

New houses come in so many different sizes with respect to not only the home itself but the lot dimensions and location as well. You will find an array of finishes and features from basic to
unabashedly artsy and each property value is heavily influenced by the type of view or usability and privacy associated with the parcel it occupies. According to BAREIS MLS, over the course of the last twelve months, we have seen 259 newly built single-family homes sold in Sonoma County with an average living area of 2438 square feet - typically consisting of 4 bedrooms and 3 baths - translating to a value of $538 per square foot (psf), furthermore pegging the average price paid in Sonoma County for new construction at $1,391,425. The marketing periods for properly priced product has hovered around 70 days – though some of this time is typically attributed to construction still being in the waning phase of completion.

More specifically, when we consider the markets as segments the numbers get more meaningful as with properties trading under $2 million there have been 222 sales over the last year with the average abode bearing 2195 square feet – commonly configured as 3 bedrooms and 3 baths - representing a value proposition of $479psf along with an average price paid of $1,027,452.
