Marin County Real Estate (December 2011 | Pacific Union International)
As with San Francisco (which we look to as a leading indicator), our Marin County markets reflect a seasonal constriction of listings entering December. There is significant anecdotal evidence of a greater dearth of inventory than usual, particularly in the just-under-$1M range. We see frustrated buyers crowding open houses and placing multiple offers on those few well-priced homes that remain on the market during the so-called “slow” months. Meaning, of course, that some prospective Sellers whose strategy it is to “sit tight” ‘til Super Bowl is over and the guacamole dip is gone may be missing opportunities. And while, to be sure, many prospective buyers are drinking egg nog in front of the fire and putting hotels on Boardwalk and Park Place, other, more opportunistic Buyers might well choose to pass Go and put offers in on REAL homes. If there were any out there.
