Since the pandemic, the corporate workplace has shifted from working at the office to working from home/telecommuting. With the announcement from major tech companies and other corporations that employees will be working from home indefinitely and/or permanently, many are rethinking where they call home. Employees once tied to a specific region or area close to the workplace are faced with an opportunity to explore other areas and possibly settle elsewhere. This opportunity has translated into a surge in demand for turnkey, upscale homes in Sonoma County and Napa Valley wine country.
This could buoy the Sonoma County housing market even further as more tech workers discover the best of both worlds in Sonoma County wine country…more affordable housing, world-class restaurants and wineries, a plethora of outdoor amenities and a slower-paced lifestyle.
