Market Commentary

Market May Begin to Firm

The real estate market in the Bay Area is beginning to heat up for three reasons. First, spring is when the market typically becomes more active. Two, mortgage rates are at 15-month lows. Third, IPOs have started creating instant millionaires.

We expect 2019 to be a strong year for the Marin County real estate market.


Sales of single-family, re-sale homes in Marin County were up year-over-year for the second month in a row. Home sales were up 5%. There were 127 homes sold last month.
