I have been chomping at the bit to write this monthly report as the market in Mill Valley is bursting with positive indicators. The number of homes sold in the Mill Valley, California real estate market rose nearly 50% over the prior month. Mill Valley's touchstone price band ($1 million to $2 million) appears to be striding towards normalcy. Not only is seasonal inventory healthy (with more homes for sale than last year), but so too is the percentage of homes in escrow (see below - it is hard to believe!). With most economic indicators pointing towards recovery, the collective thinking among buyers is that now is as good a time as any to buy a home - whether it is a first home or a move-up home. Keep in mind that buyers in Mill Valley are not buying because of government tax credits (a...

If you're in Marin County stop by Horse Hill in the Altos section of Mill Valley I love cruising the back roads of Mill Valley to find the little gems that make up such a marvelous place. Today I cruised up to Horse Hill in the Altos section of Mill Valley. Altos is small neighborhood to the East of E. Blythedale. Its in the flat lands of Mill Valley and it seems that its much warmer in this neighborhood than a lot of other neighborhoods. Homes vary in price from the upper $500s to $1.895M. You find everything from small ranchers to enormous homes with large wrap around porches. Most homes sit on really big lots and the culture of the neighborhood is very unpretentious and more down to earth. Lots of families with small children in the neighborhood as Edna McGuire elementary school, Rin...

I absolutely LOVE Mill Valley, CA and the quality of life this small community gives you! Mill Valley is like one of those small towns that are reminiscent of my youth when I grew up in the late 60's early 70's, barefoot and running free, riding my bike from one neighborhood to another.  Mill Valley is surrounded by redwood trees, hills, mountains, the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean.  It's a town where you can send your kids off to play in the many surrounding parks bike paths and trails while feeling completely safe about where they are.  Seems like the word "safe" would be a misnomer especially when you are talking about kids growing up in the Bay Area but really Mill Valley in Marin County, CA is an incredibly safe and wonderful place to raise your children.

What the real estate market looks like in Mill Valley, CA and why you'd want to live there! I love Mill Valley, California!  It's located just 7.3 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. It's close to everything yet seems so removed from the rest of the Bay Area. Every time I walk the trails of Mt. Tam, ride my bike out to Belvedere Island or walk the steep incline of Horse Hill I thank my lucky stars that I live in such a wonderful place.  Mill Valley neighborhoods are very distinct neighborhoods and depending on what you like (close to downtown, near the middle school, in a more heavily wooded area, in the hills or along the flat lands) you will appreciate the quality of life that this little tucked away town has to offer. There are 27 different neighborhoods in Mill Valley: Alto Sutto...

The number of home sales in the Mill Valley, California real estate market held exactly even in February – 16 trades (February usually has lower sales totals because it is a short month with two legal holidays and bcause January tends to have weather which limits buyer activity). Based on last month’s total sales, we currently have an overall inventory of homes sufficient to last 5.1 months (absorption rate). This number is higher than last month because of the large number of homes that came on the market very recently. As discussed below, however, our touchstone price band is performing very well.  Insofar as the sales and apsorption rate of Mill Valley’s touchstone price band ($1 million to $ 2million) are concerned, the market appears to be striding towards normalcy. As indicated a...

We know from past experience that in down cycles, once the San Francisco housing market recovers, there is a domino effect on surrounding communities. Accordingly, in our current cycle, we believe that our best leading indicator regarding a healthy, appreciating market (particularly in Southern Marin) will be the home sales environment in San Francisco. And there can be no doubt that the San Francisco market has improved dramatically in recent months. Additionally, as the banking institutions regain their footing and again provide bonuses to their employees, we will also see a surge in luxury home sales. In fact, if bonuses are significant and broad-based, I predict a very strong luxury sales market early in 2010 as buyers snap up the many “values” out there in the luxury and ultra-lux...
