Marin Real Estate: as crazy as SF and East Bay?
I am hoping for some perspective from Marin residents on the housing market there. We are based in the East Bay, as renters and love it here, but have been horrified by the rising housing market over the course of the past few years. We are branching out, but want to remain in the Bay Area. Marin has always appealed to us, but we have ruled it out in the past based on the expense. I'm wondering whether we should give it another look. We are happiest in the areas with economic and ethnic diversity (I recognize both are limited in the North Bay), so if people could recommend areas/neighborhoods where that would be the case, that would be great. Just to give you an idea, we are looking at homes between $500-700K.
