kyle: Pacific Union International | Novato Real Estate Market Update (October 2011 Novato Home Sales Report) - 11/08/11 10:56 AM
Much like August 2011, Novato, CA home sales continued to surpass expectations in September 2011, which is traditionally a very slow month for closings in Marin County. Indeed, buyers continue to move very quickly on well-priced and/or unique real estate opportunities. The average sales price of Novato homes has swung wildly this year from month to month. For example, the average sale price in June was $626K. In September it was $530K. September’s trades averaged 117 days on market, were about 1,870 sq. ft., and averaged roughly $258 sq. ft. Novato’s  absorption rate (e.g., number of months’ inventory of homes for sale based on last … (0 comments)

kyle: Pacific Union San Rafael, CA Real Estate Update (March 2011 Home Sales Report) - 03/14/11 09:26 AM
San Rafael, CA’s February 2011 home sales slowed to 22 after a momentous January in which we had 32 homes sell. The entry level price band (under $600K) remains strong — 35 of these homes are currently in escrow (WOW!). Meanwhile, the $600K to $800K price band (a mix of entry level and move-up homes) remains buyer-friendly and accounts for another 24 of homes in escrow. Interestingly, the entry level market is virtually the only segment of San Rafael inventory experiencing any meaningful traction — for example, of the 22 homes which sold last month, 16 were priced under $800,000, although … (0 comments)

kyle: Marin County, CA Luxury Home Sales (January 2011 | Pacific Union International) - 01/04/11 09:14 AM
With 6 trades in December 2010, the luxury property real estate market in Marin County (properties and estates over $2 million) experienced one of its slowest months. This, despite the fact most economists and consumers feel that that the overall economic and housing environments are improving. Indeed, for real buyers there are extraordinary opportunities available right now. Pricing in the marketplace (especially for homes that have remained on the market through the Winter months) is softer than ever and “value” is evident in the luxury segment. In line with normal seasonal adjustments, the inventory of luxury homes for sale is very … (0 comments)

kyle: Pacific Union Novato Real Estate Market Update (October 2010) - 10/27/10 06:17 AM
As we settle into Autumn, Novato's real estate market remains the model of consistency. While buyers continue to question pricing in Southern Marin and cite uncertainty as their primary concern, many are shifting their focus and stepping forward into the Novato market, confident that prices have leveled. For example, in the primary move up market (consisting of homes priced between $800,000 and $1 million, with at least 2,500 square feet and 4 beds and 3 baths) prices are UP 3% over last year. Moreover, Novato's price per square foot has hovered within 3% of $310 for several months now. Also, prices … (0 comments)

kyle: Pacific Union Novato Real Estate Market Update (July 2010 Home Sales Report) - 07/23/10 04:43 PM

The Novato, California real estate market continues its torrid year with 49 sales in June — up from 38 sales in May 2010. The average sales price of Novato homes in June 2010 was $644,778. These homes averaged 98 days on market, were about 2,162 sq. ft., and averaged roughly $306 sq. ft.
Novato’s price per square foot has hovered between 3-5% of $300 for a year now — in my mind, we are seeing the gradual recomposition of the market in the era of the “New Normal.” Prices are holding steady, particularly in the entry level and move-up price … (0 comments)

kyle: Pacific Union International | Marin Real Estate Update | May 2010 - 05/24/10 04:09 PM
We at Pacific Union International in Marin County, California continue to feel as though the 2010 real estate market is vastly different from that of 2009. Year over year prices seem to have leveled in most price segments and locations within Marin — some areas have even seen prices increase (albeit nominally). Countywide supply and demand figures suggest an improving real estate environment. Supply is up 7%. But the number of sales of 3 bedroom, 2 bath homes with at least 1,500 square feet and priced under $1 million,  are up an incredible 191% from April 2009.   

As noted in various recent … (1 comments)

kyle: Pacific Union Marin Luxury Homes Report (April 2010) - 04/25/10 03:57 PM
As with many of Marin County's micro-markets, Marin's luxury home market is showing signs of increased velocity and buyer optimism. As reported in previous months, "real buyers" continue to snap up homes in prestige locations such as Belvedere, Ross, Kent Woodlands, etc., along with "value" properties with locational upside, views of San Francisco, southern exposures, knolltop properties. In the $2 million to $4 million price band, sales have eclipsed last year's low numbers, inventory is down significantly and the number of homes with accepted offers (in escrow) is very high. This combination of factors looks promising for continued improvement. And we are not alone - … (0 comments)

kyle: Hamilton Field, Novato (Nature and Culture -- A Quick Tour) - 12/01/09 04:33 AM
Built during the Great Depression and named for World War I pilot and hero
Lloyd Hamilton, the Air Force base was originally marshland and was soldto the U.S. government for $1. Hamilton Field was designed by Capt. HowardB. Nurse, who created an environment that blended in with the naturallandscape, combining elements of Renaissance, Mission, SpanishChurrigueresque and Art Modern.
In 1976, the airfield was closed and the area used as an introductioncenter for refugees from Southeast Asia. Cambodians, Vietnamese andLaotians poured into the base on their way to establishing homesthroughout the United States.
