Marin Luxury Homes (June 2008)

June 11, 2008 by  

Marin County’s $2 million to $4 million luxury home market saw a slight rise in the number of homes for sale this past month with 127 active listings, compared to 124 homes last month. This mild rise in inventory was accompanied by a strong month of sales–25 homes sold (the same number of luxury homes closed in April 2008). Worth noting here is the fact that although the number of non-luxury homes sold this year compared to last year is down significantly (e.g., about 20%), the luxury market has NOT experienced a similar decline. Great news for owners of luxury homes in Marin.

Mill Valley accounted for the greatest number of luxury home sales with 6. Sausalito, Tiburon, Kentfield, and Ross had 3 sales each, Belvedere and Larkspur had 2, and Corte Madera, Greenbrae, and San Anselmo had a 1 sale each. The average days on market for homes that sold was a mere 67 days and the average sales price was just over $2.8 million (roughly $821/per sq. ft.), with an average of 3,461 square feet.

The inventory level in Marin County’s ultra-luxury market (homes priced in the $4 million and up range) also rose–to 46 active listings, compared with 44 last month.
