How's The Market?

2023 Year In Review

In 2023, the market grappled with significant challenges, including elevated interest rates, uncertainties in the financial markets, and a noticeable scarcity of property listings across Marin County, resulting in a marked decrease in sales volume.

Despite these obstacles, November and December data reveal a positive shift, with the median sales price for single-family homes surpassing the figures from the same period in the previous year.

One key factor contributing to this positive trend is the significant decline in interest rates, dropping more than a full percent since their peak in October. Currently hovering in the mid-six range, these lower rates are expected to motivate potential sellers, particularly those previously discouraged by the mortgage lock-in effect. The prospect of the Federal Reserve lowering its benchmark rate in response to falling inflation adds to this optimistic outlook.

Looking ahead these positive shifts paint a brighter picture for the real estate landscape in the coming year.
