Given the strength of the housing market, it is hard being a buyer right now. It is even harder if you are a buyer looking to find new construction in sought after towns like Healdsburg, Sonoma and Sebastopol, partly because there is so few high quality developments and because there are a lot more people looking for a move-in ready home than a home that requires work. Given the growth management ordinance in Healdsburg, it is unusual to have such a good choice of new construction at the higher end of the market.
Probably the most high profile developments are Mill District Healdsburg and the residences at Montage. However, at the more affordable end of the scale is the River House project with homes ranging from $1.3m to just over $2m. In addition there are a smaller number of one off new build homes that are either on the market or coming on the market in the next month.

We can't discuss new home builds without mentioning The RiverHouse project in Healdsburg.
