Mill Valley Real Estate Report (June 2013 Home Sales) | Pacific Union

Mill Valley Real Estate Report (June 2013 Home Sales Update) | Pacific Union. The Mill Valley, CA real estate market is reaching heights not seen for years (5 years, to be exact) with 43 single family home sales in May 2013. These properties sold for an average price of about $1.4 million and averaged 2,186 sq. ft. (or about $649 per sq. ft.). If you arecomparing these numbers to past market updates, you will quickly note the spike in sales prices and price per foot. Like all towns in Marin County, California (San Francisco’s “North Bay” region), the number of Mill Valley home sales are being held back by a sheer lack of homes for sale — buyers are eager to buy, but they have few options. Multiple offer situations are very common when it comes to fairly priced homes. My team has come to expect up to 15 offers for homes in the lower end. This momentum extends from the entry level (where investors are very actively pursuing a purchase and rent strategy) to the luxury home price points — case in point: we have 6 luxury homes in escrow over $2 million in Mill Valley (this includes a magnificent estate currently pending at a price of $4.9 million). This market segment was virtually non-existant the last several years.

As noted in virtually all of my market reports thus far in 2013, the number of listings actively on the market in Mill Valley is best characterized as being at a point of scarcity. As we move into the traditionally slow Summer months, there are only 53 properties active on the market in all of Mill Valley. The absorption rate in Mill Valley currently stands at just a shade over 1 month (6 months is considered “balanced”).

For those that do not know, Marin County constantly is on the top of median prices in California.  It is a highly desirable place to live.  Good luck selling in Marin County-- it is a gorgeous place to live.
