Mill Valley Real Estate Report (February 2013 Home Sales Update) | Pacific Union International

Mill Valley’s real estate market has continued to post extremely positive numbers into the New Year — the sales total for January 2013 was 13. These properties sold for an average price of about $1.105 million and averaged 1,887 sq. ft. (or about $594 per sq. ft.). Like all towns in Marin County, Ca, Mill Valley home sales have been supressed by a very low inventory of homes for sale. Despite the scarcity of homes available, however, pricing remains the key variable determining buyer interest levels and salability. For now, buyers continue to expect readily apparent value (with an emphasis on turn key homes). If Buyers do not see apparent value in a particular property, they seem to be more than willing to wait for something new. Interestingly, homes priced over $2 million in Mill Valley are not selling — just 7% of these are in escrow compared with over 75% of homes in escrow under $1 million. Clearly, while the market is on the mend in the entry level, buyers are not yet convinced of value in the luxury sector. I predict this will change in coming months as move-up buyers begin flexing their buying instincts.
