May 2017 in Marin: Spring Market in Full Swing

Spring is here in Marin County with summer right around the corner. The wild flowers are popping up all over, thanks to the wettest winter on record for most of Northern California. The landscaping is alive and it’s beautiful.

So too are For Sale signs springing up, as smart sellers take advantage of a strong seller’s market and smart buyers lock in a low mortgage rate now, even if they feel they’re paying a price premium. Time has proven that this wound heals quickly in Marin as home prices just slowly march forward. Given the early home sales track record, we’re all hearing from the experts that it will be another increase in the average home price, roughly by 8%, just like last year. Not a high flying IPO return, but safe, secure and as Mark Cuban says, you can’t live in a stock or mutual fund. As we sometimes call it, your “enjoyment of use” far exceeds the price you have to pay to live in this great county.

For now, enjoy May, wherever you are. The sun is out in most parts of the country and certainly here. As I write this, we’re looking at 80 degree days all week and as you hear around town, it feels all that much better after so much rain.

As always, let me know of any questions, thanks for reading and here’s to a great spring season for all of us.
