According to statistics compiled from the Bareis MLS , there were 1937 sales of single family homes and condos in Marin County for the 1st 9 months of 2018. This compares with 1995 units sold in the same period of 2017, a decrease of 58 units or 2.9%. These statistics would seem to indicate that Marin County is performing better than much of the rest of the state. According to a November 12 blog post by CoreLogic, an Irvine, CA-based real estate information service, statewide sales of existing single family homes and condos in September were down 17.2%  from the same period a year ago. The report said this was the largest year-over-year decline "for any month in nearly eight years". The CoreLogic report also notes that in September the statewide

25 Canyon San Anselmo sold by Ary Assadi

So excited to get my clients into this beautiful 3BD/2.5BA home at just under 2,100 SF. Built in 1996 this home is absolutely turn-key. The inspections came back with absolutely no issues and the home is located in the most serene woodsy setting in the hills of San Anselmo. We initially began our search for homes in the East Bay, but quickly realized that there were betty deals to have had in Marin. Taking advantage of the slight summertime lull in the market we quickly snatched up this home for $1,200,000. I couldn't be more overjoyed for my clients who now have their new home and enough space to welcome their second child in a couple of months!   Ary Assadi

What is a Preliminary Title Report?

A preliminary title report is issued prior to the transfer of title and details the conditions in which the title company will issue a title insurance policy.

 Real Estate Questions

Listing agents typically pre-open escrow so they can include a preliminary title report with the disclosure packet and see if there are any issues with the title that need to be cleared up.

A preliminary title report sets forth various details about a piece of real estate, including: 

  • Ownership;
  • Liens and encumbrances; including property taxes paid and owed
  • Easements. 

The preliminary title search gathers the information from the county assessors office that the property is located in.

Unlocking inventory, increasing the number homes for sale and creating more homeownership opportunity for younger buyers is the goal behind the California Association of Realtors (C.A.R.) 2018 Property Tax Portability Initiative. Realtors throughout California are collecting signatures to get this Initiative on the November 2018 ballot. It's my understanding that the Initiative is supposed to remove the barriers that keep Seniors 55 and older from selling their homes.  That would mean allowing Seniors to carry their property tax base to a replacement property anywhere in California and removing the restriction that the replacement property be of equal or lesser value.

Here’s the story behind this initiative. Seniors throughout California (Marin has
