Nothing screams MILL VALLEY quite like my new listing on 212 Lovell Ave: http://212lovell.com/. It’s everything you would want out of your first home starting a family. It’s stylish, elegant, has amazing views, and is a short walk to Old Mill School and Downtown.

In spirit of the Mill Valley theme, the sellers would prefer a down payment including, but not limited to one Patagonia vest, one pair of Birkenstocks, one crisp local IPA, and one mountain bike.

This house is off market at the moment. Don’t miss out!

The Bay Area buyer market is like the Wild West these days. A buyer can spend 10 years saving up money for a down payment, find his/her dream home, and still be wiped out by the cash cows and trust fund beneficiaries. It can get a little heartbreaking for the buyers that are currently or were very recently in the the trenches with their agent making offer after offer.

Although Marin County continues to be much tamer than the rest of the Bay, the well-priced, well-located homes are still harboring multiple offer situations. Not all of us have the luxury of 5 million cash to spend. Here are the best ways to get prepared:

The goal is to mirror a cash offer as closely as you can -

  • Strong Lender

    • Your agent should recommend a lender

To promote our new listing on 39 Dutch Valley Ln (http://39dutchvalley.com/), I thought a brief history would be helpful to all those who care about how this beautiful pocket of San Anselmo came to be:

- 1850s: A gentleman named Harvey Butterfield leased this land from a Mexican soldier from the Presidio of SF. Harvey started a dairy farm at the end of what is now known as Butterfield Rd.

- Late 1800s: The land eventually landed in the hands of the rich SF Hotaling Family, who built a lavish mansion at the end of Butterfield and named the community "Sleepy Hollow". The Hotalings were close friends with the author of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" author, Washington Irving.

- 1930s: Chicago businessman built the only "Play as you Go" 18 hole

Ahhh Tiburon. Every time I come to this town it looks more picturesque. I also see more and more early 30’s men in sweatpants walking their dog at 2:00 PM. Does that make any sense? I feel the urge to pull over and interview these guys: “How are you able to do nothing in the middle of the day at your age?” “Is it possible to take your Tesla for a spin?” “What kind of sweatpants are those?”

Anyway, I digress. Here is my new inventory ranking for one of the most expensive markets this country will ever see:

  1. 28 Teaberry Ln - 5 BD/6 BA - Just awesome. Everything you want out of a newly constructed mansion with views of the Bay. $8,500,000.

  2. 180 Gilmartin Dr - 4 BD/3 BA - Interesting angles in the architecture. Picture lots of big,

A flat backyard is one of the most valuable assets in the Marin County residential market. Because there are so many hillside properties, only a fraction of today’s buyers can enjoy these delightful, yet rarely seen flat yard spaces. However, the Narodny Team new listing at 122 Chula Vista, San Rafael (http://www.122chulavistadrive.com/) has a beautifully landscaped and fenced yard without the expensive price tag. Featured in the video are just some of the potential activities to enjoy in this space:
