Novato Blvd. Index

Driving up to Novato today (Sunday) to see a friend and get some sun I saw a ton of open house signs.

This one shows eight for sale signs:

This one from somewhere on Novato Blvd shows a cluster of seven signs:

The Novato Blvd. Index (NBI), where I drive the entire length of Novato Blvd., resulted in a total of 61 for sale signs.

Also, I counted nine for sale signs in the Inverness and Inverness Park area.

And yes, for those of you who have been wondering, "Dude, Where's the Car?" (aka "The Boat Garage") is still for sale as a house.

Dude, you were in my 'hood -- to get some sun, no less. You must live in the "real" Marin, where the prices are lofty, the noses pointed firmly skyward, and the populace chilled by the dampness of a 65 degree summer fog. ;-)

Of course, the weather cuts both ways. I was being parboiled in Novato today (only 90 degrees) and had to escape to Muir Beach to escape it.

Yeah, six signs in my hood. Thank God (or whoever) they were listed 40% above my price, in one case 70%!

Yesterday, I noticed 6 signs at one one corner: Tiburon blvd. and San Rafael (Tib/Belvedere). Some of the places down San Rafael have been listed since early last year, but that many is a new sight for me. It may mean nothing, but it could suggest properties are piling up...even over there. $1500-2000/sqft could have something to do with it.
