February 2018 Home Sale Report | San Rafael Top Agent Update

February 2018 Home Sale Report | San Rafael Top Agent Update | Pacific Union. The number of single family homes sold in San Rafael in January 2018 was an underwhelming 15. As noted in my updates going back 4 years now, the number of homes marketed and sold in San Rafael (as well as the rest of Marin County) remains low — we have an extreme lack of available listings.  San Rafael’s absorption rate, is actually an incredibly low 1-month (a normal market is 4-6 months).

If you own a home in San Rafael and intend to effectuate life change, this is an extraordinary time to market your home. Eventually, we will reach an inflection point where sellers who had been holding off waiting for prices to rise will suddenly realize it is time to sell and enter the market (in fact, in some locations, I believe we are already seeing the market shift away from favoring sellers). However, days on market are still relatively low and the average price per foot is as high as ever.

Averages relating to San Rafael home sales in January 2018 are as follows:

  • days on market — 59
  • sales price — $1.25 million
  • home size was 2,23 square feet
  • $576 per sq. ft.
