I found this quote, found here, to be potentially prophetic for Marin:
The problem in areas like Boston and Silicon Valley is that home prices shot up so high, even declining prices aren’t attractive especially as interest rates rise.

I like the first chart because the median data seems to show the peak of the housing bubble in Marin occurring in June, 2005 which fits in well with what other housing bubble observers note for other markets.

Good charts. Suggestion; my new favorite indicator is adsorption rate. Monthly sales divided by new listings

Good work. Do you have any longer term graphs? I'd be interesting to see Marins pricing in the 80's, & 90's to compare and see what happend then.
