As the market changes are contingent offers back? I just completed two transactions that involved 3 parties,3 buyers and 3 sales. Two buyers had to sell their current homes to purchase their new home. A year ago this transaction would most likely not have been possible but we seem to be in a changing market. Not necessarily from a sellers market to a buyers market but definitely moving away from the strong sellers market, with crazy low inventory, that we have been experiencing the past several years. We are in a more balanced market.

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.

There are also highlighted links (usually in
