Pacific Union International | Marin Luxury Homes Report (November 2010)

Pacific Union Int’l — Christie’s Great Estates | Marin County, CA Luxury Home Sales (November 2010) — With 13 trades again in October 2010 (same as the prior month), the luxury property real estate market in Marin County (properties and estates over $2 million) continues to perform in the face of uncertainty. As it is becoming clearer that the overall economic and housing environments are improving, real buyers are making legitimate offers. Pricing in the marketplace certainly suggests “value.” In line with normal seasonal adjustments, the inventory of luxury homes for sale is down (we currently have 149 luxury homes on the market).

Cities recording luxury home sales between $2 million and $4 million in October 2010 included: Tiburon (4), Belvedere (2), Corte Madera (1), Sausalito (1), and San Anselmo (1). These homes averaged 141 days on market. Their average sales price was $2.459 million (roughly $557 per square foot), with an average of 2,459 square feet.

Marin County’s ultra-luxury market (homes priced in the $4 million and up range) accounted for just one sale last month — a $7.14 million all cash purchase of a Belvedere view home. We currently have 55 homes for affluent buyers to choose from in this high end price band.

Note: As a member of the Marin Platinum Group, I have access to a database with several dozen luxury homes not currently offered on the MLS, but available for sale. Please contact me regarding your specific desires.
