Pasadena CA San Rafael Homes For Sale and Market Update


San Rafael in Pasadena Homes For SaleThis is a real estate market update for the San Rafael district of Pasadena.  It includes homes for sale, in escrow and sold so far in 2015 with a comparison to full year sales in 2013 and 2014.


Statistical information in this report has been gathered from our local multiple listing service(mls) and may not include all transactions.  The boundaries I have used for this report: south of the Ventura Freeway(134), the Arroyo Seco to the east, Avenue 64(west) and the city border with Los Angeles is to the south. The San Rafael Hills neighborhood which is adjacent just to the west and to the city border is not included in this particular report.   The neighborhood is part of Pasadena zip code 91105.


San Rafael Pasadena 91105 HomesA word I often use to describe this area is leafy.  Another word is bucolic although San Rafael is actually quite convenient to multiple freeways and just over the Colorado Street Bridge to Old Pasadena with its numerous shops, dining, culture and entertainment.   The single family homes in the neighborhood range in size from smaller two and three bedroom residences, the large(and often gated)estates on San Rafael Avenue with views of the Arroyo.  Many of the streets meander as you discover architecture ranging from character homes to ranch homes to the grand and often gated estates along prestigious South San Rafael Avenue and adjacent streets.


Pasadena Zip Code 91105 Real EstateThere are currently six San Rafael area homes on the market available for sale from $1,098,000 to $3,088,000 with another three in escrow.  

So far in 2015, sales have been good with 17 closed transactions ranging from $1.250,000 to $4,750,000 with an average sales price of $2,090,278(median sales price $1,835,000).   They have sold at 98.66% of last list price and for $641.86 per square foot on average.   


Pasadena Homes Along The Arroyo SecoFull year 2014 saw 26 transactions closed sales which ranged from $950,000 to $5,585,000 with an average sales price of $1,755,992 (median $1,537,500. They sold at 99.66% of last list price and for $649.53 per square foot on average.

Hi Michael.  The San Rafael area of Pasadena CA looks to be a very desirable community to call home.  Though, it is out reach for many on a budget.

Michael, the architecture in the San Rafael neighborhood in Pasadena is stunning. I can see why this is such a popular neighborhood. Buyers and sellers need to contact you and put your in depth knowledge to work. Your market reports showcase how well you know your market and when working with you your clients will find you have even more knowledge to share to guide them through their Real Estate transaction.

Leafy and bucolic is a great description of San Rafael in Pasadena. From your report, the activity there is good, and it looks like a very desirable community.  I love communities that have that kind of feeling, yet the access to the city and all amenities is nearby rather than an expedition.  A
