Buying an investment property in Marin can make sense with the decline in home prices and the rise in rents. Prices are down to 2003 levels in some cases, reducing the downside risk of where home values will go from here. The number of folks who have to sell their homes who want to rent is going up, creating more demand for rentals. Another factor is the public school system in Marin County. Families who can no longer afford private schools or weren't able to get into private schools look to Marin public schools as a good alternative, given the quality of the schools (often distinguished), and high API scores.
