Marin County homes for sale, on the whole, tend to be upscale affairs whose residents are attracted to the area by the safety, security and sense of community most areas of this county afford. This region is geographically large and begins above the Golden Gate Bridge where Mill Valley offers a laid-back lifestyle very close to all the city has to offer. Other communities in the county including Sleepy Hollow, San Rafael and the many other cities have their own advantages and have become very popular with families who want something more out of the Bay Area.
Marin County homes for sale tend to be few in number and they move relatively quickly. Much of the reason for this is that this area is stable, not a home to the endless tract housing developments that characterize so many of the Bay Area communities. There are homes available in this market that range from simple, elegant residences to very large homes with considerable lots. The houses here tend to have more character than the tract housing options, as well, which makes them attractive to those who are making an investment in a home that is more than a house.
Marin County homes for sale are listed online where customers can peruse what’s available and, thus, come to their realtor with a good idea of what to expect and what prices they will likely encounter during their search. While many of these homes are high-end where price is concerned, there are more affordable types of housing available throughout the county. Marin County is proximate to other elegant areas, including wine country, which makes the commute to San Francisco not the only easily taken journey from this northern Bay Area enclave of luxury and natural beauty.
