With the first 6 months of 2012 behind us, I wanted to provide fellow Marin Eichler homeowners & prospective Eichler Home Buyers with a mid-year update on the market for Eichler homes in Marin County.

A total of 27 Eichler homes were sold in Marin between January 1 and June 30, 2012.   Taking a closer look at Eichler sales for the first half of the year, the majority (24) of sales occurred in San Rafael where Eichlers took an average of 78 days to sell at an average sale price of $728,279 (97% of the original list price).  Importantly though, this average sale price was skewed almost $50,000 downward because of one home in the Terra Linda South neighborhood which was listed and sold for just $400,000.  This was the lowest sale price for an

I just assisted my buyers in purchasing their dream home located at 204 Railroad Avenue in the quiet and remote town of Woodacre in western Marin County for $706,000.

Their new retreat has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a remodeled kitchen, pebble tech pool, and pool house with sauna. This house is located in the highly desired flat and downtown area of Woodacre. My clients are very happy that they have finally found their perfect home especially since it was a 9 month process of exhaustive sifting through many homes that are close to being right but not quite perfect. Finding a home like this does prove that patience does pay off!

I enjoyed assisting my clients with their Woodacre real estate needs and would welcome the opportunity to assist you.

As always, one is well-served by investing a bit more work on the initial application to mitigate lender concerns. Those who don’t, risk entering into a vicious cycle of underwriting conditions that will test the outer limits of their patience and, potentially, kill their loan.


In addition to qualifying a borrower’s income and credit rating, every lender will require asset statements for at least the most recent two-month period. They will need all pages and will examine statements with a fine eye. Generally, every deposit or transfer of funds into
