Marin County, CA homes for sale comprise some of the most diverse and generally upscale options on the market. There are very significant reasons that this area has remained consistently popular and one of those reasons is the diverse selection of homes available. Rather than being characterized by the oftentimes bland selections available in other parts of the Bay Area, Marin County has its own look and feel and the homes tend to be very personal and not the commonplace looking tract housing that has taken over vast stretches of the Bay Area.

Marin County, CA homes for sale are oftentimes sought by those who live in San Francisco and either want some distance from the city itself or who want an easier commute than what they would have from the East Bay…

60_garden_rock_san_anselmo_ca_400Kids are back in school, some on campuses that have grown in number of students. Although there is concern with the budget cuts, one of the great aspects of living in Marin is that the kids don’t suffer like some other areas because of the tremendous local support for the different school districts by various foundations. Foundations like the Yes Foundation raise enough money to keep programs like music and art and help build facilities to better the standard of education. Without this great sense of community and pride and the ability to contribute, Marin would not have these incredible schools, which is one of the reasons why it is one of the most desirable places to live in California.

In marin real estate there is always a flurry of activity after…

short_sale_sign_300_300_01Short sales and foreclosures are the latest buzz words in the industry and whether you are a buyer or seller it is important to understand what they mean before jumping in.

So the market flushed with success in June and July. More sales, inventory of homes available dropped and a generally more optimistic picture of the market for real estate in Marin was upon us.
