Mill Valley Real Estate Review – END-YEAR 2019

An Inside Look at Marin County Real Estate

Although the volume of homes sold in most Bay Area counties declined in 2019, the Marin County real estate market continues to prosper: More homes sold in 2019 compared to last year (3.1%). Marin continues to be a very sought after place to live with limited inventory for buyers. 

Nearly 38% of sellers across Marin received multiple bids and sold at prices above the original asking price. Average pricing increased slightly, though the average time a home was on the market increased by 10 days vs. 2018. Fortunately, this has not slowed the number of sales or stalled increasing average pricing.

Mill Valley Summary

2019 pricing in Mill Valley remained relatively steady compared to 2018. Though fewer homes sold priced between $1 million and $2 million, nearly the same number of homes sold priced between $2 million and $5 million as 2018. Fifty percent more homes priced over $6 million sold in 2019 compared to 2018. A quarter of homes sold with price reductions, a slightly higher percentage vs. 2018.
