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

March 15, 2010

San Rafael, California real estate sales held steady in February 2010, with 24 trades. The entry level price band (under $600K) remains active, with 48% of homes now in escrow. Meanwhile, the $600K to $800K price band (a mix of entry level and move-up homes) has continued to improve — approximately 47% of these homes in escrow. The inventory for single family homes for sale sits at 115 homes (we had 79 active listings in December 2009). 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 February 2010, the average:

  • days on market was 105 days
  • sales price was $759,506
  • home size was 2,070 square feet
  • $373 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, Sun Valley, and Peacock Gap generated the most calls and showings this past month.
