Marin: May 2024 Market Stats

By Compass


April 2024 Market Highlights

  • Sellers started jumping back into the market and the number of new listings rose dramatically. This is an enormous change in market dynamics if it continues.
  • Home prices, sales volume, overbidding, and the speed at which listings sold - all increased as the market moved deeper into spring.
  • But not every listing sells: Price reductions also climbed in April.
  • Preparing, pricing and marketing the home properly still matter.


This report also includes breakouts of home values and market conditions across cities and towns within the county.

Inflation & interest rates: The general inflation reading for March - released in April - unexpectedly ticked up to 3.5%, significantly higher than the Fed's goal of 2%. This caused mortgage interest rates to climb back above 7% - though remaining well below rates seen last fall. Speculation as to what the Fed may or may not do with its benchmark rate has been shifting for months from optimistic (will cut rates, perhaps several times in 2024) to pessimistic (won't cut rates this year), back and forth, with the release of each new economic indicator. For the time being, the Fed has been standing pat, as it has since August. In any case, buyers and sellers seem to be taking the recent rise in interest rates in stride, and moving forward with life plans.
