San Marino Housing Market Report – August 2008

San Marino’s real estate activity has been holding steady in the month of August.  We actuallly saw an increase in the number of San Marino homes that opened escrow, from 8 in June to 13 in July. 

The number of homes on the market in July remained at 41 with 14 new San Marino listings coming on the market.

Looking at the 12 San Marino homes that actually closed escrow in July, the sales price to listing price ratio is pretty close – 98.23% – meaning that most homes sold close to asking price.  Interestingly enough, we’re still seeing multiple offers in San Marino.  Three of the 12 homes sold OVER asking:

Address Asking Price Selling Price $/Sq.Ft. % of Sold/Asking
1755 Sharon Place $950,876 $1,028,000 $671.46 108.1%
2270 Huntley Circle $1,050,000 $1,100,000 $541.61 104.8%

Both 1740 Hilliard and 1846 Lorain Road were sold after a price adjustment and being on the mrket for several months.  Once the prices were adjusted, both homes pretty quickly at full asking price.  A lot to be said for correctly pricing your home.
