Mill Valley, CA. April 2016 | Top Agent | Real Estate Report

Mill Valley Top Agent Real Estate Report (April 2016 Home Sales Update) | Pacific Union (click HERE for a video about Mill Valley). For the unaquainted, Mill Valley (just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, across the bay from San Francisco) is widely considered one of the most desirable towns in the Bay Area. Affluent buyers from all walks of life live and thrive here. In terms of th enumber of sales, March 2016 was a fairly slow month with just 12 homes sold (December 2015 had 25 sales). The average sales price of approximately $1.26 million, was also low compared with December. The sold properties of March 2016 averaged 1,725 square feet at $753 per sq. ft. As pricing has increased significantly over the past couple of years, Mill Valley home buyers continue to jump decisively when exceptional properties in desirable locations come to market. Indeed, multiple offers are quite common on such homes, coupled with short contingencies. I expect that this will continue in 2016.

There are currently just 44 single family homes listed for sale in Mill Valley. This is relatively good amount of inventory for this time of year and pins the absorption rate at just under 4 months (6 months is considered “balanced”). Below are the percentages of homes in escrow in each of Mill Valley’s major price bands (note that due to increased prices, I have eliminated the “under $800,000″ price level):

  • 40% of homes below $1 million;
  • 52% of homes between $1 million and $1.5 million;
  • 46% of homes between $1.5 million and $2 million;
  • 36% of homes between $2 million and up.

Of the 12 homes that sold in March 2016:

  • 9 homes were under $1.5 million;
  • 3 homes priced from $1.5 million and up.

MLS Listings in Sycamore Park, Tamalpais Park, Boyle ParkMiddle Ridge and Strawberry neighborhoods generated the most calls and showings this past month.

Mill Valley Real Estate Report (Pacific Union November 2010 Home Sales Update)

November 23, 2010

October 2010 home sales in Mill Valley totaled 20. These trades sold for an average price of $997, 159 (this figure is much lower than normal as last month’s sales were nearly all under $1.5 million, which is somewhat unusual — September sales averaged $1,307,026) and the homes averaged 2,065 sq. ft. (or about $501 per sq. ft.).  It seems September 2010’s sales reflected extreme buyer caution as 19 of the 20 sales were under $1.5 million — on any given month we would expect about 1/2 the sales to be over $1.5 million. Certainly the 13 sales under $1 million helped to clear out some lingering inventory in this entry level price band.  The number of listings actively market on the MLS is on the low side (103) as many sellers have decided to take their homes off the market as Winter sets in.

The percentage of homes in escrow:

  • Under $800,ooo — 46%
  • $800,000 to $1 million — 21%
  • $1 million to $1.5 million — 33%
  • $1.5 million to $2 million — 27%
  • Above $2 million — 0%

Listings in Strawberry and Sycamore Park generated the most calls this month.
