Sales Plunge in April

Sales of single-family, re-sale homes tanked in April compared to last year. I think we all expected this amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. Home sales were down 66.7%. There were 65 homes sold in Marin County last month. The average since 1998 is 185.

We expect home sales to continue dropping for the next two months.

The median sales price of single-family, re-sale homes in Marin County was flat year-over-year. It was down 4.5% from March.
