Pacific Union Real Estate Mill Valley CA. Real Estate Report (June 2010 Home Sales Update)

Similar to May 2010, the number of homes sold in the Mill Valley, California real estate market rose and Mill Valley’s touchstone price band ($1 million to $2 million) posted another solid month. Buyers are again speaking confidently about the market as prices have tumbled, interest rates are extraordinary, jobs numbers have improved, and media coverage concerning real estate has turned positive. I have a strong sense that many feel a tailwind.

The number of homes for sale in Mill Valley is up marginally to 147. Summer is upon us, school is out, and the primary selling season has wrapped up. Mill Valley’s entry level price bands (under $1,000,000) are as strong as we have seen them over the past couple of years. Moreover, the luxury price band of $2 mil. to $4 mil. is HOT — 32% of these homes are in escrow) several with multiple offers — of course, the ones that are selling are priced extremely well). The chart below show that median sales prices have equalized for 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom homes under $1 million compared with last year.
