This month's blog is for sellers, potential sellers, and would-be sellers who are sitting on the sidelines waiting for the market to improve.

I just spent the last 2 and a half hours looking up, writing down, and digesting the November real estate statistics for Marin County. It seems to me like a great time to sell, so I can't understand where all the sellers are! Let me share with you some of the numbers I found:

Number of homes sold in November:             2012                 2011                   2010

Single  Family                                             185                   164                     147

Condo                                                          56                    62                       46

 

Inventory of homes for sale 11.30:               

Single Family                                              421                   846                     1072

The Greenbrae housing market is sizzling right now, with only 12 current listings, and 9 of them in contract--- a red-hot  75%. Novato is not far behind, with 126 of 174 current listings in contract--- 72.4%! Larkspur (9 of 16, or 56.25%), San Rafael (95 of 170, or 55.88%), Fairfax (11 of only 20, or 55%), and Corte Madera (only 6 listings and 3 are in contract!---50%). Even Belvedere, with the lowest percentage in contract of all the cities and towns surveyed, has 6 of 20 listings in contract, or 30%. Buyers are scrambling to find properties that will work for them. Multiple offers  are happening every day. If you have been waiting to sell your home, this may be the right time! Call your experienced local REALTOR and make an appointment to go over recent comparable sales in your neighborhood. You may be pleasantly surprised!
