Marin Luxury Homes (August 2008)

August 13, 2008 by  

The number of homes for sale in the $2 million to $4 million luxury home market in Marin County, California fell over the past to 106, compared to 122 homes in July 2008. This time of year is the typical slow season as sellers recalculate their positions, buyers are out of the County on vacations, etc., and a number of agents doze off, waiting for things to pick back up in the Autumn. Indeed, the lower inventory was accompanied by a respectable month of sales with 20 homes sold in July 2008. 

Mill Valley led the way with the most luxury home sales (4 of these homes sold). Tiburon and Larkspur followed with 3 homes sold and Kentfield and San Rafael had 2 sales each. Ross, San Anselmo, and Corte Madera had 1 sale each. The average days on market for homes that sold was a mere 70 days (14 days more than in June) and the average sales price was $2.576 million (roughly $907/per sq. ft.), with an average of 3,083 square feet.

The inventory level in Marin County’s ultra-luxury market (homes priced in the $4 million and up range) also fell–we now have just 46 active listings, compared with 54 last month.
