  • HousingThe median home price in Santa Rosa is $282,600. 51.08% of homes are owner occupied, while renters occupy 43.27%, which is quite a bit above the national average rental rate. Santa Rosa has an exceptionally low 5.65% rate of vacant apartments and houses. The fact that the vacancy rate is so low means that you might have to spend a little more time looking for your ideal housing option, although you can be sure to find it if you're patient. If you want to experience the benefits of home ownership and need a little help meeting the high down payment necessary, a rent to own house might be your easiest pathway to getting established in a neighborhood.
  • TransportationAnother aspect of life in the San Francisco Bay is the heavy traffic involved in daily commutes. Because Santa Rosa is nearly 60 miles north of San Francisco, the length of the daily commute depends on whether or not you have to travel into San Francisco for work. If you do have to commute, it could take up to two hours in heavy traffic. However, if you're lucky enough to work in Santa Rosa, you can have the benefits of living in a small, beautiful town with gorgeous weather without spending hours per day stuck in traffic.
  • Local FestivalsLocal events and festivals contribute to the high quality of life in Santa Rosa. Among the many festivals in Santa Rosa include the Sonoma Wine Country Weekend, Wine Country Salsa and Bachata Festival, Festa Italiana, Taste of Sonoma, the annual Kendall-Jackson Heirloom Tomato Festival, and the Wine Country Film Festival.
