Pacific Union San Rafael, CA Real Estate Update (March 2012 Real Estate Report)

March 21, 2012

San Rafael, CA’s February 2012 home sales remained fairly consistent with a total of 28 trades (as these are homes that went into escrow during December and January, this is an intriguingly large number of homes for the normally tepid Winter months). It must also be noted that there is a continuing dearth of properties for buyers to choose from and the market seems very constrained by this lack of inventory.

Averages relating to San Rafael home sales in February 2012 are as follows:

  • days on market — 120
  • sales price — $685K
  • home size was 2,082 square feet
  • $334 per sq. ft.

Properties in Lucas Valley, Gerstle Park, Peacock Gap, and Loch Lomond  generated the most calls and showings this past month.
