The San Rafael real estate market is about what you would expect from a Marin County town with nearly 60,000 residents. Single-family homes, townhouses, condos, and apartments all help shape the housing inventory in town, but like nearly all of its Marin County neighbors, single-family homes are easily what’s most common throughout the area. Recent statistics show the median home value in San Rafael is somewhere close to $874,500, which is pretty typical for this part of northern California. Generally speaking, homes for sale on the south side of San Rafael that are closer to the waterfront are where you’ll find many of the city’s most expensive properties, while homes further inland on the north side of town is a great place to begin a home search if you’re looking for something under $1 million.


San Rafael is also county seat of Marin County, and with a population of about 58,000 people, the atmosphere all over town is usually quite vibrant and energetic. But because San Rafael covers a broad 22.4 square miles, parts of it are also quite rural, giving home buyers plenty of different options when it comes time to find the perfect new place to call home. For some, San Rafael’s location directly where Highway 101 and Interstate 580 intersect couldn’t be more convenient, giving residents easy access to both San Francisco, as well as Richmond, Berkeley, Oakland, and any other city on the other side of the bay.

Like so many other parts of Marin County, living in San Rafael is all about being outside. Parks and open green spaces account for roughly 30% of the city’s area, and as a bay front community, there’s also no shortage of marinas and various other water-related amenities for locals to use as well.
