A suprising uptick in sales occurred last month (January 2011) in San Rafael - we had 32 homes sell compared with 26 in December. The entry level price band (under $600K) remains strong - 26 of these homes are currently in escrow. Meanwhile, the $600K to $800K price band (a mix of entry level and move-up homes) remains buyer-friendly and accounts for another 17 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 26 homes which sold last month, 27 were priced under $800,000, although there was activity in higher end as well with 3 sales over $1 million. There are currently 107 homes active on the MLS. Averages relating to the 32 homes which sold in January 2011 are as follows:
- days on market - 138
- sales price - $697,000
- home size was 2,022 square feet
- $346 per sq. ft.
