Located just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, picturesque Marin County has it all - golden hills, beautiful views, gorgeous coastlines, open spaces, perfect weather, and a laidback lifestyle, all within close proximity of the city and wine country.
Well known for its natural beauty and outdoor recreation, Marin’s natural sites include the Muir Woods, the Marin Headlands, Stinson Beach, Point Reyes National Seashore, and Mount Tamalpais. Thousands of acres of open space make Marin a destination for hiking, bird-watching, running, cycling and mountain biking, surfing, sailing, kayaking, and horseback riding.
Within Marin’s many charming communities you will find a variety of art festivals, galleries, and public art installations, while live music, theater, and independent cinema can also be enjoyed on any night of the week. You can tour the galleries in downtown Sausalito while appreciating the views of the San Francisco skyline, take in a live show at Mill Valley’s famed Throckmorton Theatre, or take a stroll down Novato’s restored Grant Avenue.
The market has continued to prove that inventory is the key to sales. Available listed properties have remained constrained, and well cared for homes that are priced appropriately receive lots of attention, with serious buyers willing to stretch their budgets to successfully complete a purchase. With the constraints on foreign economies, there is less pressure from non-resident buyers, and although there is activity across all price ranges, the sweet spot seems to be in the starter to mid-level price points in most communities.
