san rafael: Pacific Union San Rafael, CA Real Estate Update (March 2011 Home Sales Report) - 03/18/11 07:38 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)

san rafael: Marin County, CA. Real Estate Update — December 2009 (Homes For Sale & Price Ranges) - 12/19/09 02:08 AM
The Marin County, California real estate market approaches the new year with momentum. While the beginning of 2009 was terrible for sellers and the market overall, the latter half of 2009  was quite strong across many market segments, giving brokers and home owners a reason for optimism in 2010. While year over year prices are down in many price segments and locations within Marin, some areas have actually seen prices increase (albeit nominally) year over year. Indeed, I believe that many brokers feel as though absent further crisis, we are at or near the end of the downward cycle - after 3+ years.

san rafael: Marin County, CA. Real Estate Update — October 2009 (Homes For Sale & Price Ranges) - 10/19/09 05:27 AM
Over the past year, my reports have continually pointed to simple supply and demand indicators in an effort to define a “normal” Marin County real estate market. As noted a year ago, “recovery to a normal market will require stability in financial markets, a strong local employment trend, affordable interest rates and strengthening consumer confidence.”  
Reflecting on the past twelve months, Marin County real estate markets experienced the most difficult and unpredictable dynamics. The financial markets imploded, unemployment trends accelerated and consumer confidence was shattered. And while we benefit from historically low interest rates, credit requirements, approval guidelines, and loan … (0 comments)

san rafael: San Rafael CA Real Estate Market Report (August 2009 Home Sales Update) - 09/18/09 03:52 AM
San Rafael, CA’s real estate market is increasingly fueled by foreclosures and short sales. The entry level price band (under $600K) remains extremely hot (84% of such homes are currently in escrow) and the $600K to $800K price band has seen steady activity with 35% of homes in escrow (same as last month).

The big news in San Rafael real estate this past month revolved around the sale of Carlos Santana’s 1.7 acre, 7,000 square foot estate, which sold for $4.185 million after a short two weeks on the market. Congratulations Carlos! Meanwhile, San Rafael listing prices experienced a brief rise earlier this Summer, but have again begun a downward shift over the past few weeks. By comparison, asking prices in Novato have been rising for several months, leading many to beleive that the bottom has formed in Novato. It does not appear this phenomenon is being replicated in San Rafael.
