San Marino: Demand Continues to Outstrip Supply

San Marino real estate market with its affluent home buyers is suffering from the same lack of home inventory as Pasadena.  There was 50% less homes available for sale this July compared to last year.  And, the price per square foot increased 10.4% while an average price that home buyers need to pay went from $1,630,000 to $2,003,000.

Affluent buyers, both local and overseas, are bidding for the opportunity to live in one of the most desirable areas in San Gabriel valley.  With the #1 rated public schools in Southern California, close proximity to museums and parks, and next to shopping, fine restaurants, Caltech and more, San Marino home sellers are able to demand top prices for their homes.

So… what do you get for the $2,000,000 price tag?  Let’s take a look at a few recent solds in that range:
