marin_eichler_value_500 

As a Realtor and Eichler Home Owner, I'm frequently asked by neighbors, clients, and friends about the current value of their Eichler home.

While there are many entertaining tools on the web that homeowners can utilize to estimate the value of their home, these tools fail to recognize and value the distinct characteristics of Eichler homes which can have a profound impact on determining the true market value for your home.

If you are an Eichler homeowner in Marin and would like to receive a free estimate of your home's current market value, visit  www.EichlerValue.com and request your home valuation online now.    

Additionally you can call me directly at 415-EICHLER (415-342-4537) for assistance with your Eichler real estate needs.

In 2011, a total of 50 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 2011 Eichler sales in Marin, all sales occurred in San Rafael (with the exception of one custom-built Eichler home in Kentfield which sold for $1,600,000 and is excluded from the overall

Many of our clients have a New Year's Resolution which includes "Buying a New Home in 2012" however I know many folks are still uncertain about the market.   For those curious about the overall real estate market and whether or not now might be a good time to jump-in, I'd encourage you to preview the following articles which just ran in this past weeks USA Today.

  • Unemployment rates are the lowest they’ve been in 3 years (note: Marin County consistently has the lowest unemployement rates throughout California)
