2016 ANNUAL MARKET REPORT
I am pleased to present the Bay Area 2016 Annual Market Report, prepared by the outstanding Decker Bullock Sotheby’s International Realty marketing team.
As always, the report features housing value data for our fast moving market for Marin County as a whole, and also by town and city. The balance between supply and demand is the driving force in any market. A lack of inventory, combined with historically low interest rates, has maintained the competitiveness of our Marin County real estate market in 2016.
In addition this year, the report includes seven additional counties in the Greater Bay Area, reflecting our expansion in 2017 into Silicon Valley and the Peninsula. The expansion is launched as Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty, leveraging the iconic, globally identifiable Golden Gate Bridge to firmly establish the location of our listings in the world.
The highly personal and local service I provide to my clients in Marin will only be improved by this change.
Our market is hyper-local, and changes with the seasons, the global and local economies and the balance between supply and demand, so stay tuned all year by reading my monthly market updates. Of course, I am happy to speak with you at any time to provide you with the latest information and helping you determine how much your home is worth or if now is the time to jump in and buy a Marin home.
If you are thinking of selling, now is the time to start the listing and sales process as demand remains high. Our local market has fully recovered and regained its 2007 peak value. I am happy to speak with you to provide you with the latest information and help you determine how much equity you have in your home. I will show you how I successfully market Marin properties by leveraging the incomparable, proven-result marketing of the #1 company in Marin and as a tech and social media savvy agent.
Buying a home in our competitive Marin market can be challenging and requires a real estate agent with the knowledge, experience and negotiation skills to help you succeed. I provide a Five Star Experience to my clients at all price points and gain great satisfaction in helping them reach their real estate goals.
I look forward to assisting you with all of your real estate-related needs in 2017!
