Pacific Union International | Novato Real Estate Market Update (July 2014 Novato Home Sales Report). Novato sales numbers in June 2014 were strong — 47 single family homes sold. This is impressive, given the low number of homes on the market. Buyers continue to act very decisively on properties in desirable neighborhoods and that are priced appropriately. Strong terms are common on entry level homes (anything under $700,000). The Novato luxury home market segment is also performing well (in Novato, $1 million+ homes fall into this category). The average sale price for Novato homes in June 2014 was $828K (up from $737K in March 2014). Novato’s luxury sector (defined here as listings over $1 million) continued its impressive performance with 7 sales.

Novato real estate sales in June 2014 averaged just 39 days on market, were about 2,244 sq. ft., and averaged roughly $378/sq. ft. Novato’s absorption rate (e.g., number of months’ inventory of homes for sale based on last month’s sales totals) is about 1.5 months. This is a very low absorption rate — balanced markets have 6 months worth of inventory.
