    The Long-View

    The end of another quarter allows us to step back and take a long-view of the market. Since the first quarter (Q1) of 2014, the median sales price (MSP) of single family homes is up 75.82%. In that same time, the MSP of condos is up 37.79%. As we shorten our timeline, these numbers shift, and the curve flattens out. In the last 12 months, the MSP of single family homes has decreased 7.07% while condos managed to trend up 2.95%. (1)

    Since Q2 of 2017 we see that the MSP of single family homes is up 5.16%. But, focusing on Q2 of 2018, single family homes have gone down 1.74%. If we look at the same time frames for condos, MSP is up 16.81% since Q2 of 2017, but down 3.01% since Q2 of 2018. Neither decrease is heart-stopping, but they do indicate a trend. The market is correcting itself.

    It’s All About Inventory

    In Marin, it’s all about inventory right now. For single family homes, the number of new listings has increased along with the months supply of inventory (up 41.2%) (2). This corresponds to a decrease in MSP (following the law of supply and demand). Condos are slightly more contradictory: new listings are up, and months supply of inventory is up (110%!) while pending sales are down. This would lead us to believe that there are more properties with fewer competing buyers, yet the MSP increased slightly. We may anticipate more correction coming soon to condos.

    (1) Marin Condos have consistently performed well over the last 2 years.

    (2) Months supply of inventory represents the number of months it would take to sell out of the total inventory on the market.
