Well, according to this Marin IJ article (written by this blog's now favorite IJ reporter...wink, wink, nudge, nudge) the median priced SFH in Marin in November, 2005 was $920,000. (Yay for us, we are now even more unaffordable!) According to the IJ this is a 9.9% increase from a year earlier and is up a pathetic 0.6% from this October, 2005 (the IJ actually used the words "climbed" and "jumped" to describe this 0.6% increase if you can believe that). Sales volume is down 13% as compared to November, 2004.
However, using the more reliable data from the Marin Assessor's office, we learn that in fact November, 2005's $920,000 price tag is really up only 7% from a year earlier (still respectable) and is down (not up as according to the IJ) a meager 0.3% from this October, 2005's $923,000 median price. But according to the data at West Bay Realty, the $920,000 median price tag for November is down 3% from this past October, 2005.
It's still too preliminary for this blogger to make much of all this (but of course the IJ is all over it as they can still write a positive article) as it usually takes a couple months for the data to settle. More graphs to come.
