There were 256 homes on the Marin real estate market in June - a 29% increase from last year and the most homes for sale in the past 14 months. Read more here.

Marin County Real Estate Market Report October 2021 | Latest News

In September we saw the median sold home price in Marin County increase by 11% vs the same month last year to $1,723,000. The number of homes for sale decreased by 26% vs. September of 2020. We continue to see a very active market in Marin, but there are great opportunities for those who are prepared for it. Smart buyers are pre-qualified, well-educated on the market and can move quickly. Pre-emptive offers have become more common as buyers try to “lock up” a house before it is fully exposed to the market. Smart sellers prepare their homes for sale with staging, painting and in some cases remodeling. Just because it is a sellers’ market doesn’t mean that a poorly-prepared or marketed home will command top dollar.
