Q1 2017 in the wine country market has been an intriguing quarter. The torrential downpour was the biggest hurdle and did contribute to a bit of a slowdown. Per our brokerage manager, Jonathan Soh, many markets showed static or decreased sales volume this last quarter in comparison to the first quarter of 2016. A couple of areas did experience an increase, however, to include Petaluma (a 30% increase) and Healdsburg (a 13% increase).
Sotheby’s International Realty’s wine country brokerage Significant Sales in quarter one included our listing on Pressley Road, which closed for $3,175,000.
