San Rafael CA Real Estate Market Report (February 2010 Home Sales Update)

February 13, 2010

San Rafael, California real estate sales slowed in January 2010, with 25 trades, down about 20% from December. The entry level price band (under $600K) remains active, with 59% of homes now in escrow. Meanwhile, the $600K to $800K price band (a mix of entry level and move-up homes) has risen to about 36% of homes in escrow. The inventory for single family homes for sale has risen significantly to 111 homes (we had 79 active listings last month). It is expected that this Spring will see a large number of homes hitting the market as sellers who have stayed out of the market for the past 2 years will feel more confident in the real estate market this year.

Of the 22 homes sold in January 2010, the average:

  • days on market was 94 days
  • sales price was $871,625
  • home size was 2,230 square feet
  • $390 per sq. ft. (the average price per square foot has  been trending downwards at an average of about $5 per month for the past few months). 

Homes in Lucas Valley, The Dominican, Terra Linda North, and Peacock Gap generated the most calls and showings this past month.
