Marin County Real Estate and Property Listings
Why We Love Marin CountyJust across the Golden Gate Bridge, and minutes from downtown San Francisco, lies magnificent Marin County, California. Surrounded by water on three sides, visitors can explore wild and scenic California beaches, enjoy sailing and windsurfing in San Francisco Bay, or marvel at the ancient redwood forest on the slopes of legendary Mt. Tamalpais. The natural environment of Marin County is breathtaking!
Marin County is conveniently located between San Francisco and the Napa and Sonoma Wine Country, and its warm, sunny California climate makes it possible to enjoy Marin’s incredible array of outdoor attractions all year round. Marin is a natural for outdoor recreation: mountain biking, hiking, fishing, bird watching, windsurfing, kayaking, golf and tennis.
Music, art and film festivals, and historical and cultural venues like the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Civic Center continue to attract people from all over the world. Many California-grown organic fruits and vegetables, artisan cheeses, fresh seafood and some of the world’s best wines appear on the menus in Marin’s diverse restaurants. Wine tasting, antique shopping and exploring Marin County’s scenic countryside are all part of this California vacation paradise.
Marin County, CA Real EstateHistorically, Marin has always been one of the more desirable places to live in the Bay Area because of its proximity to the San Francisco, its schools, weather and the high standard of living enjoyed by its residents. In addition, a large part of the County is designated open space which limits growth and any large new developments. This also means that inventory is kept limited. Although it fluctuates with differing markets and times of the year, it is not affected by hundreds of new homes that get built and flood the market. Currently, there are approximately 1500 residences on the market of which 20% are condominiums. Approximately 29% of the inventory is in escrow which is up from the latter part of 2008. The market is improving as buyers realize that Marin has and always will experience appreciation in their housing market and they feel confident in buying homes here on both a financial and personal level.
