Marin Real Estate Market Report – September 2019

While sold prices for both single-family homes and condo/townhomes rose slightly in August, they are both still down year-on-year. Single-family home sales prices are down 5.2% year-over-year, while condo/townhomes prices are down 11.1%.

Demand is lower and fewer properties are selling. Single-family home sales are down 6.0% and condo/townhomes are down 9.3%.

However, inventory in the under-$2,000,000 market remains exceptionally low at just 1.4 months, so even though there are fewer buyers, those in the market are competing for very few properties. Therefore, in this entry-level market, a well-priced property is likely to receive multiple offers.

Inventory above $2,000,000 is substantially higher – 4.9 months, up slightly from July. In this market segment, sellers should expect fewer offers and lower offer prices.
