Marin County Real Estate Market Report February 2017 | Market News

Welcome to my Marin County Real Estate Market Report for February 2017! We continue to see evidence that the market is cooling, even as we take into account the slower winter months. It remains to be seen, however, whether this trend will continue into the normally-busy spring season.

January 2017 Marin County Real Estate Market Report | Market News

Welcome to my January 2017 Marin County Real Estate Market Report. Happy New Year! I hope that you were able to take some time over the holidays to relax and rejuvenate with friends and family. The world of Marin real estate did take a bit of a breather in December on the heels of a slower fall season than the prior year. December is traditionally the quietest month of the year for Marin real estate, and December 2016 was no exception.

November 2016 Marin County Real Estate Market Report | Market News

Welcome to my November 2016 Marin County Real Estate Market Report! In last month's report I reported that the Marin real estate market is taking a bit of a breather with a less-robust fall than expected. As we are moving into the cool Autumn days (aren't they gorgeous here in Marin?), the market is continuing to wind down though we did see a bump of sales in October. With those homes now off the market and fewer coming on, we are seeing inventory continue its downward trend. Marin home sellers are beginning to focus on the holidays in November and December and Marin home buyers are also taking their time -- there is less inventory now but also much less competition.

October 2016 Marin County Real Estate Market Report | Market News

Welcome to my October 2016 Marin County Real Estate Market Report! In last month's report I said, "it remains to be seen if we will see a recovery from the summer slowdown in September as we have in the past few years," and I think it's safe to say at this point that we are definitely seeing a plateau in the market, especially at the higher price points (above $2.0mm).

September 2016 Marin County Real Estate Market Report

Welcome to my September 2016 Marin County Real Estate Market Report! Summer is drawing to a close and the next "mini real estate season" is set to start now that the Labor Day holiday has passed. So far this year we have seen a fairly typical story -- a robust spring season followed by a quieter summer. The weeks after Labor Day typically feature more activity from sellers and buyers eventually tapering off in mid-November as people begin focusing on the holiday season. It remains to be seen if we will see a recovery from the summer slowdown in September as we have in the past few years.

August 2016 Marin County Real Estate Market Report

Friend: "Is this what you call a slowdown???" Thomas: "No, this is what I call August." That's the discussion I have with friends and clients like clockwork every year at this time. I thought it an appropriate way to start my August 2016 Marin County Real Estate Market Report. In Marin County, the only time of year to determine if the market is softening is during the spring mega- season or the fall mini-season.
