More Good News! The latest stats for the month of February just came out for the local housing market. In Marin County, they show gains both in numbers of homes sold and in median price for those sold. In February, 153 homes sold, an increase of 37.8% from the year earlier. The county median price was $615,000, up 7.3% from February 2009. Does this mean that the housing crisis is over? Probably not totally, particularly when you remember that prices a couple of years ago were dramatically higher than they are now. However, what these numbers DO mean is that it appears the market has begun a definite push in the positive direction, a move that can only help homeowners, and the general economy as well.
