What do 51 Eagle Drive and Netflix have in common?

Marin Netflix series "13 Reasons Why" based on the best selling novel about teenage bullying is rolling there cameras primariy in San Rafael and Novato. My listing at 51 Eagle Drive in Novato is currently being considered as one of the locations that Netflix would like to be part of the show. This is something that my sellers are entertaining and would have to be something that any potential buyer would be willing to take on if they are interested in purchasing this absolutley stunning home in the Marin Country Club Estates Neighborhood of Novato. If Netflix and my seller do come to terms there would be an associated financial gain for the time that Netflix uses the 51 Eagle Drive location. Please contact me if you have any potential buyers as this can be a huge selling point. Sounds exciting and I hope Netflix represents our county well...Looking forward to seeing "13 Reason Why"...

While that bodes well for our real estate market, the free fall of equities needs to be contained lest we see a fallout in real estate prices come this fall when bonuses are paid.
So many of our buyers rely on the benefit of their equity position for their down payment that Marin is likely to see a home price correction unless the international market corrects itself and fast.
Locally, we are certain to have continual expansion of tech companies and a continued inflow of top-level employees to our region. Thus, a need for homes and quality schools. All of which won’t change over the next year.  
The demand for Marin housing has sustained positive levels of growth for over four years now. However, ...

These micro-homes range in size from 833 SF for a 2BD/1BA for the Neutron residence, to 1,264 SF for the largest 1BD+/1BA Manhattan model. Even more intriguing is the fact that these are net-zero homes. If you are not familiar with the term, then here is a quick refresher:...
