I recently completed my quarterly Eichler Homes newsletter and wanted to provide a quick "market update" and also provide our clients and visitors with an update on current and upcoming inventory.
2010 Eichler Market Summary for Marin County
In 2010, a total of 49 Eichler Homes were sold in Marin County and I was proud to once again finish the year as the #1 Agent in Marin County for Eichler Home Sales.
Looking closer at 2010 Eichler sales in Marin, all sales occurred in San Rafael and there were no Eichler sales in either Mill Valley or San Anselmo. The most expensive Eichler sold for $1,162,500 and was located in Upper Lucas Valley; the least expensive Eichler sold was a bank owned property in San Rafael's Terra Linda North neighborhood which sold for $495,000.
In terms of performance, I proudly sold well over 1/4 of all Eichler Home in Marin County last year. Additionally, I finished the year as the #1 Agent in San Rafael for the number of homes sold (not just Eichlers!) and in the top 1% of all Realtors in Marin County for both sales and transaction volume.
From a listing perspective, my Eichler listings sold on average for 98% of their asking price in just 40 days. Homes that were not listed by me on average sold for only 92% of their asking price and took more than 2.5 times longer (103 days) to sell.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with both my buyer and seller clients in 2010 and look forward to a successful 2011!
2011 Market & Inventory Update
Currently, there are just 6 Eichler Homes for Sale in Marin County ranging in price from $594,000 to $999,000. There are currently 4 Eichlers for sale in San Francisco (all condos), ranging in price from $508,000 to $1,095,000.
While inventory is quite low, expect things to pick-up over the next several weeks as we approach Spring. I have a few wonderful listings coming up in the near future including a few Eichlers, a wonderful mid-century modern home in Tiburon designed by noted architect Roger Lee, and a fabulous modern home with a separate artist studio in Sausalito. As always, I'd welcome the opportunity to share additional information regarding these upcoming listings well before they hit the market with my committed clients!
If you are thinking of buying or selling in 2011, drop me a line and let me know how I can assist you. I've got a great pulse on current (and upcoming) inventory and would welcome the opportunity to assist you!
