47% of the homeÂ on the market inÂ Novato are in contract– any number over 20% indicates a healthy market and any number over 30% indicates a sellers market. The current number of 47% of the homes currently on the market in contract is improbably high given the fragile state of the economy, the state budget crisis. In the book “Extraordinary Popular Delsions & The Madness of Crowds” the author documents many historical instancesÂ such as the Tulip ManiaÂ where humans act in unison– the demand hitting various towns in Marin is another instance of this and the patient buyer is advised to sit tight for a few months unless they find the absolutely perfect house.
