The Anlyan Report. Marin County Real Estate 1.29.13. Weather Cool, Market Hot!

By: Frederick Anlyan Friday, February 1st, 2013 at 10:54pm. 865 Views, 0 Comments.

 Of the 13 Marin County towns and cities we usually follow, 7 are now characterized as being "Very Strong Sellers' Markets"---- meaning that 56% or more of listings in those towns are in contract. Housing inventory in the County is incredibly low. At the end of December, Months' Supply of Inventory (MSI) was only 1.9 months for both Single Family Residences (SFR) and Condominiums. Reluctant Sellers continue to hold their properties off the market while waiting for higher home prices to arrive. That time may be here sooner than many people thought.

According to a January 16 article from Data Quick, a La Jolla,CA-based real estate news service, the median price of a Marin County home in December was up 27.6% from December 2011 (with about half the…

The Marin market - and the whole Bay Area market is surging. The median price of Bay Area homes sold in December was up 32 percent compared with a year earlier. That is an impressive increase. Home values increased through most of 2012, and especially towards the end of the year.

 But there are still question marks and some caution about how soon and how much the market will recover. However, the trend is very encouraging. Take a look at foreclosures (=bank owned homes) and short sales; they are dropping at a fast pace. Marin foreclosures declined by 41% year-to-year in the last quarter of 2012. And overall there has been a sharp decline with the number of home owners entering the formal foreclosure…

How often have you heard this over the last few months: Inventory is SO LOW in Marin County!?

Just how low is it?  Well... take a look at this graph ((click on graph for larger version):

 

  mi_past_two_years_400

 

The above graph depicts Months of Inventory for the past two years in Marin:

It's almost difficult to believe, isn't it?!  For you numbers people, here are a few of the numbers depicted in this graph:

Months of Inventory for Dec '10 was 4.9, for Dec '11 it was 2.6 and last December it was 1.3!  That's a 73.5% reduction when comparing12/10  to 12/12.

In 2011 we had three months where the MOI was above 5: January, February and April.  In 2012 MOI was below 4 in January and February, all the others months were below 3, with…

Kentfield Real Estate - Living in Kentfield is Fun

By: Annalise Demuth Tuesday, January 29th, 2013 at 9:17am. 1059 Views, 1 Comments.

I've been a 7 year resident of Kentfield and enjoy Kentfields' ammenities on a daily basis.  Here they are and I hope you enjoy them. 

1) The Corte Madera Creek Path - this path starts in downtown Ross and heads East all the way to the Ferry.  It boarders boths sides of the creek in Kentfield and Larkspur.  At the end of the path nearest to the Ferry is the Marin Rowing Club.

2) The Woodlands Market - if you're a foody, you'll love the Woodlands Markert.  They have daily fresh fruits and vegetables, a deli with prepared gourmet hot and cold meals, a coffee bar, a sandwich bar and a butcher.

3) The Kentfield School District - OK, I'm biased.  My son has attended both Bacich and Kent.  Of course it's a combination of the teachers, PTA, staff and…

5 reasons to move to Marin (or come home to Marin)

The current market is like a rare convergence of stars! A perfect alignment that creates unique and special opportunities. According to a local astronomer, my only son was born under such a rare convergence and while I might be a little biased he truly is a unique and special person with traits typically not seen in a human boy! My point is, the market is ripe and while inventory is down great homes are hitting the market daily.

Interest rates are low, prices are down and the job market in Marin and SF continues to rebound with tech companies expanding and opening offices in SF.

Here are my top 5 reasons why you should consider relocating to Marin…
