Dear clients and friends:
Welcome to July on the Sonoma Coast!
While inland communities swelter in the summer heat, we've had many balmy days around 68 degrees on the coast. The hottest thing on the Sonoma Coast is the real estate market.
The frenzy has cooled slightly, due to many people taking a vacation, many for the first time in a year and a half. However, demand continues to be strong in Sonoma County and on the Sonoma Coast. There is still the influx of folks from San Francisco, the South Bay and East Bay looking to purchase their coastal home for primary residences, second homes and/or investment properties. While the number of offers in multiple offer situations has decreased, more than one offer at the same time is still most common.
Below you'll find RED LINKS to coastal real estate, coastal information and local news. If you have any questions, no matter how big or small, please don't hesitate to reach out. Feel free to email or call us with any questions you may have about real estate or coastal living.
If you want to explore all coastal properties currently on the market from Dillon Beach to Sea Ranch, and all in between, click on COASTAL PROPERTY SEARCH. Note: if an "Active" property is not clickable, it is because it is already in contract.
Here's OUR SOLD COASTAL PROPERTIES.
Below are some of the BEST beaches on the Sonoma Coast:
Best for beachcombers: Schoolhouse Beach, enclosed by rocky headlands on the Sonoma Coast, has a glorious pebble shore and a low tide that sea scavengers won’t want to miss. The vibrantly colored and ocean-polished small stones and seashells are great for collecting, and the tidepools are teeming with colorful marine life, such as starfish, mussels, hermit crabs, sea anemones, and other interesting critters and crustaceans. Viking Strand and Highway 1, Bodega Bay
Best for dogs: Doran Beach Regional Park is popular for a number of things: picnicking, fishing, paddling, bird watching, kite flying and even horseback riding. But perhaps one of the most beloved aspects of this beach is that it’s dog-friendly with plenty of space for your furry friends to explore (on a leash that is). Take your playful pup on a trail through the grassy dunes or wade by the gentle seashore for a memorable time with your best friend. 201 Doran Beach Road, Bodega Bay.
Best for animal sightings: Goat Rock Beach in Sonoma Coast State Park is an ideal location for animal lovers. Beach-goers can go birdwatching for gliding seabirds like gulls and sandpipers, catch a glimpse of breaching whales during migrating season, and take a gander at a colony of Pacific Harbor seals with their pups all summer long. For the safety of the seals, no dogs are allowed on this beach and people should stay 300 feet away, especially during pupping season from March to August. Highway 1 and Goat Rock Road, Jenner.
Best for sunsets: While any beach along the Sonoma Coast can provide excellent sunsets, Portuguese Beach is the ideal place to get comfortable and really soak them in. Whether you’re fishing from the rocky bluffs, sunbathing on the large sandy beach or relaxing on the grassy knoll by the parking lot, there’s no bad spot here to watch a stunning, golden sunset over the ocean. Eureka Drive and Highway 1, Bodega Bay.
