Marin Real Estate Home Sales 2008 Mid Year Report

p align=”left”>My clients or many Realtors on the National Forum have been asking me about how the market is in general and in Marin county.

My answer is always – Real Estate is LOCAL

No matter how much the media dramatizes the market condition, Marin County House Prices still hold steady. This is especially true for great houses in desirable locations in Southern Marin (such as Belvedere, Corte Madera, Greenbrae, Larkspur, Mill Valley, Ross, San Anselmo, Sausalito and Tiburon), or for that matter, all of Marin.

One of the recent news (will follow up with another blog) is the fact that Marin Land Trust just purchased right to another agricultural zoned land at a prime location so that the owners can stay at the property but any future use, including sale of the land will have a restriction of keeping the land for agricultural purposes.

This helps keeping the Marin developable land to a minimum, future housing supply lower, and the Marin environment healthy and green as our pride and joy.
