We saw continuing low volume and steady pricing in October, so the overall market dynamics remained the same. Inventory remains tight and well priced properties in more desirable neighborhoods are seeing multiple offers. Contributing to the inventory shortage, many property owners have locked in historically low interest rates over the last few years, making them less likely to make a move.
Only 28 single family homes sold in October, which is on the low side of normal.
The median price for a single family home in Novato came in at $1,242,500 in August.
2022 prices shown in gray, 2023 prices in orange:
Transaction volume remains lower than normal due to poor supply.
The market has slowed this fall, primarily due to higher interest rates reducing affordability for Buyers. While there has been some downward pressure sales prices have been fairly steady due to limited supply. Barring a significant macroeconomic shift, values should be relatively stable in 2023.
