After a steady, if relatively flat 12 month period, the Healdsburg single-family housing market is on an impressive upward climb heading into the year’s final quarter

The average sales price for high-end homes in Healdsburg over the past 90 days has shown tremendous growth according to MLS numbers.

In June, the average sales price of a home in this charming, Sonoma County hamlet registered a healthy $1.57 million. 

After a slight drop off in July and August, which saw prices dip to a four-month low, September numbers have skyrocketed, with average home sales fetching a robust $2.15 million. That represents a nearly 150% sale price increase over this time last year.

Several more high profile properties remain on the market, including two exceeding $12 million and four others in the $5 million to $10 million range. Plenty of movement remains at lower tiers as well, as a total 163 were reported as active within the past month.

If the market indications hold, the local housing market should see a rousing close to the year.  

As a whole, Healdsburg continues to outpace other areas nearby, but overall numbers do reflect a similar trend for both Sonoma and the surrounding markets, including Napa and the Bay Area.

For its part, Sonoma County was recently cited by Realtor.com in its list of US counties seeing the fastest price gains in luxury housing. Sonoma barely missed cracking the top 5 coming in as the 6th fastest.

In Healdsburg, the influx of wealth over the past decade has helped to transform this wine-centric municipality into a vacation hotspot. It has even graced Fodor’s Travel list as one of America’s best small towns.
