How's the Market?
Marin Real Estate is unique. Several factors make it a niche market.
Marin is actually made up of many neighborhoods that have a variety of assets that drive real estate values. In some instance, pricing can be very different within a two mile radius. Proximity to San Francisco. Fog belt vs. sunnier weather. Level neighborhoods vs. views. There are nuanced perceived values that also play out in pricing homes in Marin.
National real estate news DOES NOT APPLY HERE IN MARIN COUNTY. Our supply/demand ratio is controlled by a no-growth policy created in the late 1960's and early 1970's at the county government level. Marin has not had a building boom and bust cycle these past years because there has been very little new housing. Over 65% of the county is actually held in some form of Open Space. The County is home to Point Reyes National Seashore. Our county performs very differently from Vallejo, Sacramento, and certainly Nevada, Arizona, and Florida where expanding development has compounded their real estate devaluation.
