December 2008

Found 5 blog entries for December 2008.

As the year winds to a close, I wanted to provide everyone with a quick synopsis of how the real estate market in Marin County California held up for buyers and sellers of Eichler homes in 2008.    

I specifically wanted to break out Eichler home sales history information since many of my clients (both buyers and sellers) have a profound interest in these mid-century modern properties in Marin County.     While Eichler homes can be found in several Marin towns including Mill Valley, San Anselmo, and San Rafael, all Eichler transactions for 2008 ocurred in the town of San Rafael.  

San Rafael Eichler Sales for 2008

In 2008, a total of 41 Eichler homes were sold in Marin County.   As mentioned, all 41 of these Eichlers were located in San Rafael.

SOLD $799,000!  Good value for this lovely home in the heart of the vineyards in Kenwood, Sonoma County. 

Located at 8727 Sonoma Highway, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath home sits on a large level lot (3/4 acre) with views of vineyards and the mountains that surround the area. Good schools, close to shopping, restaurants and lots of wineries! 

I represented the buyers for this property, a charming family which moved from San Francisco to settle in this delightful area of Kenwood.   Contact me if I can assist you with your Marin county real estate or North Bay real estate needs!
