4 Thornton Ct. Novato CA 94945 has new owners!

Well, after several attempts at other properties, my client’s offer was accepted on 4 Thornton Ct. This property checked all the boxes and in my opinion, was the best property for my buyer. One level ranch with a pool and fantastic outdoor space for entertaining! Once again, I could get my clients offer accepted before the public open houses. Curious how that works…call me.

The market is hard in general to get into because of the lack of inventory. But the market for single level homes that appeal to downsizers is even harder. Why? Because the downsizers are competing with the first-time buyers and up-sizers. The sale to a downsizer can be tricky because they are used to a bigger house and may have

51 Pinheiro Cr. Novato CA 94945 has new owners!

I’m so happy for my first-time home buyers that just closed on their gorgeous Marin home. They were able to jump to the head of the line and get their winning offer accepted before any public open houses. This does not happen very often, but occasionally there is a seller that needs to get their home in escrow quickly in order to move forward on their replacement property. Luckily this was the case for us. My buyers acted quickly and met with their awesome lender and as a team, we were able to beat out the competition and get our offer accepted.

51 Pinheiro is a large home that my buyers can grow into as well as share now with family and friends. They love that they can walk to town, are close to

1225 Mountain Blvd, Oakland CA 94611

 

Is Oakland the new Marin? Buyers are flocking to Oakland to purchase homes when they realize they have been priced out of Southern Marin. My lovely buyer clients have been looking to upsize, from their 3 level Mill Valley condo, for several months. We made a handful of offers but with the continued demand and historically low inventory in the under $2m market homes are selling for 5%-10% over asking and higher. We were outbid every time.

1225 Mountain KItchen

My clients and I watched home prices inch up in Mill Valley and the 3 bedroom, 2 bath home they were looking for was suddenly out of reach. So, they did what many potential home buyers do, they went East. East Bay that is! They quickly realized their dream home was not

Anyone feeling a slowdown? I don't feel it quite yet but I sense that it is coming. The inventory is still extremely low and that makes it hard to notice a slow down as there always seem to be too many buyers competing for the same property. But with sellers continuing to "overprice" their properties, this will come to an end.  

Here is what MAR's president said yesterday:" There are a lot of questions about the market and what's going to happen as it starts to shift. Although there are homes in Marin that sell with multiple offers and an unbelievable sale price, there still seems to be some lag with other homes in the market. This morning, there were 343 active single-family homes in Marin for sale. The lowest priced one is in Novato at $529,000, and

2149 Elderberry Lane San Rafael CA 94903: SOLD!

2149 Elderberry Lane sold for $165,000 over asking price, which makes this home the highest price per square footage sold in the lower portion of Lucas Valley. I thoroughly enjoyed helping prepare the home; yard clean-up, presale inspections, final staging and amazing professional photography! This sale comes as no big surprise, as the home was impeccably maintained, desirably upgraded and located in the highly sought-after Dixie School District near endless acres of open space and trails. The home received multiple offers soon after going on the market and closed for $1,300,000.

The northern area of San Rafael (Terra Linda, Marinwood and Lucas Valley) continues to see rising property values.

I had the pleasure of representing the seller of 66 Hector Lane in Novato.  I represented her when she purchased 66 Hector Lane in 2015. This 2 bedroom, 1 bath condo with a detached single car garage in Southern Novato had been extensively remodeled several years ago.  We were fortunate to receive a good offer before this condo went on the market which enabled the seller to relocate to Southern California without the worry of having two mortgages for an extended period of time.  The timing worked out beautifully for the seller and it allowed the buyers to purchase their first home.  It was truly a win-win for everyone. The condo sold today for $370,000.

If you are buying or selling, give me a call.  I take pride in creating a win-win scenario for

I had the pleasure of representing the sellers of this iconic adobe ranch style home reminiscent of architect Cliff May's work in the 50's that symbolized the Western Lifestyle featured in Sunset Magazine.  This home evokes an emotional response that harkens back to our romance with the West and an earlier time in California.  The sweeping views of Mt. Tam and the surrounding hills from this Southern facing private gated estate makes this a very special home.

  

This unique home exudes a comfortable charm with vaulted open beam ceiling, skylights, built-in bookcases, wood burning fireplace, Western ranch doors, adobe walls and original concrete tile floors.  It features 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a family room and an office with a separate
