Marin County Real Estate (August 2008)

August 13, 2008

Besides having good air (the best in the country, in fact), excellent schools (click HERE for last month’s Forbes article discussing Marin Schools), a relatively short commute (even the Novato commute to San Francisco will soon be improved further when the HWY 101 widening project is completed in December), lots of dedicated open space, beaches, hiking trails, proximity to Lake Tahoe, and everything else we sometimes take for granted living here, we can also be pleased that we don’t see the wild down-swings in pricing like other parts of the country (click HERE for my recent article on Fundy Markets).

We currently have 748 active listings (down from 772 in July 2008). While Summer is traditionally slower for home sales, buyers continue visiting open houses en mass. Reports of multiple offers continue, especially for aggressively priced Southern Marin homes in good locations and bank owned properties in Novato.
