Mill Valley Real Estate Report (July 2014 Home Sales Update) | Pacific Union

July 29, 2014

Mill Valley Real Estate Report (July 2014 Home Sales Update) | Pacific Union (click HERE for a video about Mill Valley). Summer is typically slow for Mill Valley real estate sales. This year feels like it is no exception. However, as I was writing this last sentence I took a break to review my Mill Valley Real Estate Reports for July going back to 2007 (YES — I have been writing these updates for over 7 years now). What I found is a little surprising — our Mill Valley sales numbers for June 2014 are actually the highest we have seen in that month for at least 7 years. Let’s take a look back:

In July 2007, the year that most Marin County realtors point to as the apex of home sales in Marin, there were 40 sales. This seems interesting as inventory is so low right now and there are so few homes coming to market under $1 million in Mill Valley, which limits buyer activity at this very hot price point in Southern Marin. Other notes from 2007 — A) the average days on market was 50 days (July 2014 was 31 days); B) the average sales price was $1.76 million (July 2014 was $1.68 million); C) the average price per foot was $702 (July 2014 was $744). Seems to me like the housing market has fully recovered in Mill Valley, CA from the dark days of 2009-2012.

Certainly, the result of low interest rates and even lower inventory is brisk home sales. In June 2014, we had 41 single family home sales. These homes traded on average for $1.682 million and averaged 2,285 sq. ft. (or about $744 per sq. ft.). Comparing these numbers to past market updates, one can see a dramatic rise in both sale prices and price per foot over the past year. Despite the sudden rise in pricing in 2013, many properties continue to receive utterly extraordinary multiple offers with bid prices as much as 20% above asking price, coupled with short contingencies. This momentum extends beyond just the entry level homes and int the luxury segment over $2 million (we had 8 homes sell for over $2 million in June 2014, compared with 4 in January).

Just 48 single family homes are currently active on the market in all of Mill Valley. The current absorption rate in Mill Valley is very low — it stands at about 1 month (6 months is considered “balanced”).

Below are the percentages of homes in escrow in each of Mill Valley’s major price bands:
■57% of homes priced under $800,000;
■50% of homes between $801,000 and $1 million;
■73% of homes between $1 million and $1.5 million;
■33% of homes between $1.5 million and $2 million;
■13% of homes between $2 million and up.

Of the 41 homes that sold in June 2014:
■2 homes were priced under $800,000;
■22 homes priced from $800,000 to $1.5 million; and
■17 homes priced from $1.5 million and up.

Mill Valley Real Estate Report (November 2012 Home Sales Update) | Pacific Union International

November 21, 2012

Our Mill Valley, California real estate market continues to shine as sales during the month of October 2012 numbered 31. These properties sold for an average price of about $1.4 million and averaged 2,516 sq. ft. (or about $574 per sq. ft.).  While, similar to the rest of Marin, an extremely low inventory of homes for sale continues to negatively impact potential sales numbers, pricing remains the key ingredient determining buyer interest levels and salability. As much as ever, buyers continue to insist on undeniable value with an emphasis on turnkey homes. If they don’t see it in a particular property, they will continue to wait. The number of listings actively on the market in the MLS has decreased to the point of extreme scarcity (there are only 45 homes on the market in all of Mill Valley as of this writing). The absorption rate in Mill Valley currently stands at just over 1 month (6 months is considered “balanced”).

As is evidenced by virtually all criteria — market data, real estate forecasts, and buyer demand — the overall health for Mill Valley real estate has improved dramatically over the course of 2012. One of the most promising metrics is the upswing in sales in Mill Valley’s “wheelhouse” price bracket of $1.25 mil to $1.75 mil. For many, many months, the number of sales in this traditionally strong Mill Valley price bracket were low. Yet last month alone, 14 trades took place in this range.

The percentages of home in escrow are:

  • up to $800K — 73%
  • $800-$1 mil — 38%
  • $1 mil to $1.5 mil — 56%
  • $1.5 mil to $2 mil — 30%
  • $2mil & Up — 13%

Listings in Boyle Park, Homestead Valley, Sycamore Park, and Cascade Canyon generated the most calls this month. Well-priced homes continue to generate multiple offers. If you would like more information about neighborhoods, sales, schools, or local Mill Valley services references, just give me a call at (415) 350-9440 or e-mail me at Kyle@MillValley101.com.

Mill Valley Real Estate Report (Pacific Union March 2011 Home Sales Update)

March 17, 2011

February 2011 home sales in Mill Valley climbed ever-so-slightly to 15 (up from 13 in January). These trades sold for an average price of $903,927 and averaged 2,151 sq. ft. (or about $453 per sq. ft.).  While anecdotally we are hearing about increased activity, the fact remains that pricing is key. Buyers insist on apparent and undeniable value. If they don’t see it in a property, they are willing to wait it out. The number of listings actively on the market in the MLS remains very low at 72. I suspect once the current rainy spell ends (it looks like it is supposed to rain non-stop for another weeks), we will see inventory balloon. It will be interesting to see how sales play out in Q2 as it appears that bonuses for employees working in the San Francisco financial sector may spur bread-and-butter and luxury sales in our highly desirable city.

The percentage of homes in escrow:

  • Under $800,ooo — 48%
  • $800,000 to $1 million — 24%
  • $1 million to $1.5 million — 33%
  • $1.5 million to $2 million — 20%
  • Above $2 million — 0%

Listings in Boyle Park and Homestead Valley generated the most calls this month.

Pacific Union Real Estate Mill Valley CA. Real Estate Report (June 2010 Home Sales Update)

June 18, 2010

Similar to May 2010, the number of homes sold in the Mill Valley, California real estate market rose and Mill Valley’s touchstone price band ($1 million to $2 million) posted another solid month. Buyers are again speaking confidently about the market as prices have tumbled, interest rates are extraordinary, jobs numbers have improved, and media coverage concerning real estate has turned positive. I have a strong sense that many feel a tailwind.

The number of homes for sale in Mill Valley is up marginally to 147. Summer is upon us, school is out, and the primary selling season has wrapped up. Mill Valley’s entry level price bands (under $1,000,000) are as strong as we have seen them over the past couple of years. Moreover, the luxury price band of $2 mil. to $4 mil. is HOT — 32% of these homes are in escrow) several with multiple offers — of course, the ones that are selling are priced extremely well). The chart below show that median sales prices have equalized for 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom homes under $1 million compared with last year.

Mill Valley’s 20 sales in May 2010 gave rise to the following averages: an average price of $1,161,875; and about 2,059 sq. ft. (or about $530 per sq. ft.). Note that the price per square foot number is prone to wild swings from month to month. For example, two months ago, the price per square foot was $640 in Mill Valley. This is because the composition of sales varies dramatically from month to month — at best, price per square foot is a blunt instrument. Homes in Tam Valley, Scott Valley, Sycamore Park, and Country Club generated the most calls this month.

Get It Now (Entry Level Mill Valley Home For Sale):

617 Springfield Way in Tam Valley is now on the market. Priced at $865,000, this private home (with a new roof in June 2010) sits on ~1/3 acre at the end of  a serene cul de sac in a magnificent setting. It features 3 bedrooms and 2 baths upstairs, along with a large unit downstairs which would be perfect au pair quarters or income — it has rented out recently for ~$1,000/mo.

Pacific Union International Mill Valley CA. Real Estate Market (May 2010 Home Sales Update)

May 15, 2010

The number of homes sold in the Mill Valley, California real estate market rose again in April 2010 and Mill Valley’s touchstone price band ($1 million to $2 million) has posted another great month. As stated last month, it has been more than three years since buyers have spoken confidently about the market, but they are now. Low interest rates, improved jobs numbers, a string of positive local and regional real estate news stories, and a stronger stock market environment has buyers again feeling secure in the fact that they are buying with a tailwind.

The number of homes for sale in Mill Valley is tapering as we move through the Spring selling season  — we now have 135 homes on the market. Mill Valley’s entry level price bands (under $1,000,000) are as strong as we have seen them over the past couple of years. Perhaps most telling is the fact that the median sales price in Mill Valley for 3 bedroom, 2 bath homes is up 31% from last year.

Mill Valley May 2010

Mill Valley’s 25 sales in April 2010 gave rise to the following averages: an average price of $1,392,360; and about 2,398 sq. ft. (or about $575 per sq. ft.). Note that the price per square foot number is prone to wild swings from month to month. For example, last month, the price per square foot was $640 in Mill Valley. This is because the composition of sales varies dramatically from month to month — at best, price per square foot is a blunt instrument. Homes in Tam Valley, Scott Valley, Sycamore Park, and Country Club generated the most calls this month.

617 Springfield Way in Tam Valley is now on the market. Priced at $865,000, this private home sits on ~1/3 acre at the end of  a serene cul de sac in a magnificent setting.

Mill Valley CA. Real Estate Market Report (February 2010 Home Sales Update)

February 14, 2010

The number of home sales in the Mill Valley, California real estate market slipped to 16 listings sold, compared with 27 in December 2009. Based on last month’s total, we currently have an overall inventory of homes sufficient to last 3.7 months (note that several homes came on the market very recently). This is a big reduction from the absorption rate from May 2009, which stood at well over 8 months. Indeed, the number of homes for sale in Mill Valley remains very low at 63. Meanwhile, asking prices have held steady over the past quarter and stand now at about $605 per square foot.

Mill Valley Homes Sold & For Sale Medians

The above graph tracks sales prices vs. listing prices over the past 2 years in Mill Valley for homes under $2 million. While the median sales price is down 19%, the median asking price is down just 3%. Meanwhile, for homes over $2 million, the median asking price has dipped 11%, while median sales prices have dipped about 30%. We still believe that there are many “real buyers” out there who have been waiting for “a sign” to buy. Certainly, the media’s negative feedback loop seems to have reversed itself as most mainstream economy-related articles seem to be more positive in nature. Certainly, investors are “flipping” homes again! Mill Valley’s entry level price band (under $800,000) is fairly strong with 39% of homes currently in escrow.

Mill Valley CA. Real Estate Market Report (October 2009 Home Sales Update)

October 16, 2009

The good new is that it seems the media has turned a corner on its reporting of the U.S. and worldwide economies, as well as the housing market. Positive press coverage has permeated all forms of media and is certain to change the tide, although it will take time. Significantly, San Francisco agents are reporting a significant surge in sales and prices. We know from past experience, that once San Francisco recovers, surrounding communities recover in a geo-concentrically expanding fashion.

Yet, the Mill Valley, CA. real estate market continues to limp along, offering hope of recovery, but not fully reaching the plateau (or nadir, as it were). Pardon the inevitable mixed metaphors, but it seems the real estate market is like an elite athlete with an ankle sprain, constantly at risk of further injury or re-aggravation. Our low expectations for September were fulfilled as we had just 21 home sales — same as in July and August 2009.

While is seemed that prices had gathered traction after a slippery first half of the year, last month’s price per square foot of homes sold dipped to $529 — note that the graph below tracks asking prices and the average price per square foot for homes on the market is holding steady at about $615. We have been waiting to see whether this flattening out of asking prices would carry over into the sales prices of homes trading this Fall and Winter and it appears the answer in “no.”

Real Estate Market Chart by Altos Research www.altosresearch.com

Based on last month’s sales total of 21, we currently have an overall inventory of homes sufficient to last a bit more than 5.67 months (virtually the same as August 2009) — this is called the absorption rate. This is still a HUGE reduction from the absorption rate from May 2009, which stood at well over 8 months. The number of homes in escrow is also virtually the same as last month. We think there are many real buyers out there who have been waiting for “a sign” to buy — we don’t know what that sign will be (there are likely to be many “signs”), but we feel it will likely come soon.

Real Estate Market Chart by Altos Research www.altosresearch.com

As with Marin overall, the most active segment is the sub $1 million price bands, which can be characterized as neutral markets, favoring neither buyers nor sellers. Well over half of last month’s sales were under $1 million. The number of “bread and butter” homes (those priced between $1 million to $2 million) currently in escrow is up from last month to about 20%. Meanwhile, the luxury market in Mill Valley (homes from $2 million and up) saw strong activity last month (5 sales) — and another 9 such homes are in escrow.

Homes in Tam Valley, Scott Valley, Sycamore Park, and Country Club generated the most calls this month. If you would like more information about neighborhoods, sales, schools, or local Mill Valley services references, just give me a call at (415) 350-9440 or e-mail me at Kyle@MillValley101.com.

Marin Luxury Real Estate (July 2009)

September 10, 2009

Marin County, CA’s luxury real estate market segment is slow and remains weighted towards homes priced under $4 million — just one home priced over $4 million sold in June 2009 and it was an off-the-market sale. The number of sales in June 2009 is off by over 40% from June 2008, yet the average price of sold homes is down just 3% from last year. In Marin, only the homes with special locations, views, or features seem to be getting significant attention. For a detailed snapshot of current national trends from the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing dated July 19, 2009,click hereNote, if you would like a local report relating to any town or zip code in Marin or San Francisco, call me at (415) 350-9440. Yet, the news relating to home starts and permit applications is again improved this month. As earnings reports come in for Q2 and the stock market has found some hope in the numbers, it does not appear that such developments consitute the siren call buyers seek.

As noted last month, buyers remain dubious of price stability for good reason. But, increased conforming loan limits and a pronounced level of increased affordability across the board should help sales moving forward into the Summer as buyers with 25% down will obtain top-shelf financing for purchases of $1.6 million. While not “Luxury” territory here in Marin, a sizable segment of buyers of luxury homes must sell their current homes first (80% of buyers are sellers). The chart below indicates that across the trend in Marin’s luxury segment is for lower prices — 10% to 28% lower than last year in Mill Valley, Belvedere, and Kentfield.

The year over year inventory levels in Mill Valley have hovered at around 20% for the past couple of months. Meanwhile, inventory in Kentfield has rocketed to 60% higher than last year. Belvedere is 75% higher than last year. Prediction: Kentfield and Belvedere prices will continue to recede markedly through Q4 2009. Indeed, we can see that trend has set in dramatically in the above chart.

Mill Valley CA. Real Estate Market Report (August 2009 Home Sales Update)

August 13, 2009

The Mill Valley, CA. real estate market remains predictably unpredictable — after just 17 sales in May 2009, we had a robust 29 sales in June 2009, followed by 22 sales in July 2009. As I noted in last month’s report, the decline in sales numbers this month was expected as families focus more on vacations and outside activities. And September will bring even fewer home sales, along with a moderate rise in inventory and increased buyer activity.

Over the past quarter in much of Marin County, it has become apparent that asking prices have halted their downward spiral. As is evident in the graph below, which tracks the median price per square foot (down from $740 to $615), in Mid-June 2009 prices flattened out in Mill Valley. It will be interesting to see whether this flattening out carries over into the sales prices of homes trading this Fall and Winter.

Real Estate Market Chart by Altos Research www.altosresearch.com
Based on last month’s sales total of 22, we currently have an overall inventory of homes sufficient to last about 5.45 months (up from 4.6 months in July 2009) — this is called the absorption rate. This is a HUGE reduction from the absorption rate from May 2009, which stood at well over 8 months. A big reason for the lower absorption rate is the reduced inventory as sellers removed thier homes from the market for the Summer — we currently have just 120 active listings.
While not discussed by most real estate agents, the absorption rate is an important barometer of market health. Below is a graph showing that in 2009, Mill Valley has consistently outperformed 2008 in terms of homes absorbed. Thus, while many agents seem despondent and unenthusiastic about the market, the truth is that things are much better than last year and continue improving. I predict that sales activity will increase significantly in the late Fall and into the Winter months, not only because of continued favorable interest rates, but also because I think there are many “real buyers” out there who have been waiting for “a sign” to buy — I don’t know what that sign will be (there are likely to be many “signs”), but it will come soon for “real buyers.”
Real Estate Market Chart by Altos Research www.altosresearch.com
Most activity in Mill Valley is occurring in the sub $1 million price bands, which can be characterized as neutral markets, favoring neither buyers nor sellers. The number of “bread and butter” homes (those priced between $1 million to $2 million) currently in escrow is hovering at a low 12% (about the same as last month). Meanwhile, the luxury market in Mill Valley (homes from $2 million and up) saw some meaningful activity with 3 sales last month and another 6 currently in escrow.

Real Estate Market Chart by Altos Research www.altosresearch.com

The above graph charts asking prices and shows that since November 2007 prices have slid from about $740 per square foot to about $610. While some buyers believe prices may slip a bit more, most understand that while interest rates have risen 70 basis points in the past 3 weeks, they are still very low and that mortgage math punishes those who don’t lock in at or near the lowest rate possible. For example, if prices dip another 5% and interest rates go up just 1%, the monthly payment would increase dramatically for an $800K home with 20% down (call me for exact numbers relating to a given situation). 

Based on last month’s sales total of 17 (we had 14 sales in April), we currently have an overall inventory of homes (AR) sufficient to last a bit more than 8.35 months in Mill Valley, CA (down from 11 months last month). Overall, the number of homes for sale rose to 142 (way up from 90 in February 2009). The number of “bread and butter” homes (those priced between $1 million to $2 million) currently in escrow is hovering at 12. Meanwhile, the luxury market in Mill Valley (homes from $2 million and up) remains feeble with 3 sales last month and another 3 currently in escrow.

Mill Valley’s 17 sales from May 2009 gave rise to the following averages: 64 days on the market; an average price of $1.167 million; and about 2,183 sq. ft. (or about $528 per sq. ft.). Homes in Scott Valley, Sycamore Park, Boyle Park, Country Club, and Strawberry generated the most calls this month. If you would like more information about neighborhoods, sales, schools, or local Mill Valley services references, just give me a call at (415) 350-9440 or e-mail me at Kyle@MillValley101.com. 

p.s. I currently have several clients who want to be sellers, but are waiting in the wings. Please contact me to determine if any of these opportunities fit your needs. I also have a fixer listed in Homestead Valley that is a super value play, priced at $699,800 (3 Beds/3 Baths, 14,000 sq. ft. lot backing Molino Park).
