The tables are turning in the North Bay real estate world.  Recently I have witnessed a significant increase in the number of price reduction while perusing the Marin County MLS for my home buyer and seller clients.    With this in mind, I decided to take a quick look back to see exactly how many price reductions there have been since the begining of October, 2007.
