Greenbrae CA real estate is currently the worst off ofÂ all suburban Marin Towns. Only 13% of the homes on the market are in contract. any number below 20% indicates a buyers market;Â the average days homes have been on the market is 125 days. This is another indicationÂ of the demand in the marketplace– buyers are families looking for great neighborhoods, with great public school systems within close proximity to San Francisco jobs.Â They apparently are finding this in other places than Greenbrae.
In 2008 and 2009, Dave and the DuPont Group areÂ leading agents in Marin County Real Estate. Since the recession began in earnest in 2008, Dave personally closed over 36 sales and $47m in real estate sales, and his group has closed over $60m.Â For 2 years running Dave has sold more homes than any other agentÂ at DB Sotheby’s Intl Realty.Â The data in these pages represents the extra mile we go for clients and is our competitive advantage over other agents in all parts of Marin. Now is not the time to select an agent to represent you because they are a friend or even because they may have represented you in the past. The work habits most realtors has evolved over the past 20 years are not translating well into selling homes in todayâ€™s real estate environment where home buyers make decisions because of financial considerations as opposed to emotional ones.
Dave is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP), Certified Financial Manager (CFM), received his MBA from Pepperdine University, a CA real estate broker and worked for approximately 10 years in the San Francisco financial district. This Blog works in conjunction with The DuPont Groups primary web site.
