For the past three consecutive months the number homes selling in Marin County has exceeded those very same months in both 2009 and 2008 — which I think is even more important than the average sales price. Homes are selling. The average sales price can fluctuate widely from month to month depending on what particular homes sold in that given month, so to me volume is more important.
That said, the average sales price for the past three months has been pretty steady, ticking up ever so slightly each month, and hovering right around where it was last year — and in 2001- 2004.
