Fairfax Homes & Real Estate

Uncover the top Fairfax homes for sale and all real estate in Marin County below! When you think about Marin County and all it has to offer, it's hard not to picture the city of Fairfax right off the bat. Widely considered to be one of the more progressive communities in the entire Bay Area, Fairfax already has a number of unique city ordinances in place the prevent chain stores from opening up in town, local restaurants from using styrofoam food packaging, and the use of plastic shopping bags that aren't considered environmentally-friendly. In addition, there's hardly a better location to enjoy an authentic sense of small town charm and character, which is all made possible thanks to the city's vibrant, lively, and incredibly walkable downtown. And because it's also situated only 3.25 miles northwest of San Rafael, what you can't find in Fairfax is likely only a short drive up to the nearest town, only adding to the convenience of calling this wonderful Marin County town home. For up-to-date information regarding properties for sale in Fairfax or to schedule a private home showing, contact your Bay Area real estate specialists today. Read more about Fairfax real estate.

Fairfax Real Estate Market

Properties in Fairfax vary from small homes on small lots to homes on acreage. The architectural styles are diverse, ranging from older cottages and ranch-style homes to modern contemporary homes. If the family oriented, laid back atmosphere of Fairfax appeals, it might be worth taking a look at homes in Fairfax. If buyers are lucky enough to find a fixer, housing is still fairly affordable in Fairfax. Although there are expensive multimillion-dollar homes, potential homeowners can also find some relatively modestly priced real estate; remember, however, this means modest by Bay Area or Marin standards. Many homes are located on hillsides and have decks or small yards. There is a definite rural feel to the homes in the area, despite the fact they are only minutes from the urban hustle and bustle of the city.

The Fairfax real estate market is about what any buyer would expect from a northern California town with a population of around 7,600 people. By now, most of the downtown area is entirely developed, so for building a dream home from the ground up here, buyers who are touring the area might have to look a little bit further outside of the city. Cottages and ranch style houses are common in terms of entry-level homes in Fairfax, while larger estates with a contemporary or mid-century modern flair tend to act as some of the more expensive housing options in town, which usually list for somewhere in between $2 and $3 million.

Fairfax Community Amenities

Only about 30 minutes from San Francisco, Fairfax is a fun, community-friendly little town. Another of Marin County's liberal enclaves, the laid-back attitude and small town atmosphere make Fairfax a great place to live. There is a sense of community here; downtown has a real shopping area with a grocery, informal restaurants, and it's all within walking distance of many of the homes in the area.

There is something for everybody in Fairfax. In June the biggest weekend of the year centers on the Fairfax Festival. Thousands come to enjoy a parade, food, drink, flea market, and live music. The other weekends of the year can be spent enjoying hiking and biking. Fairfax is the birthplace of the mountain bike, so there are lots of trails in the area. Each Wednesday, June through September, the Farmers' Market comes to town and is a gathering place for the community. Most evenings can be spent listening to the live music offered by the numerous clubs in town.

What makes the Fairfax, CA area so appealing to many of today's active home buyers is that it truly offers everything you could want in a new place to live, from top-notch schools and outdoor recreational amenities to a relatively close proximity to nearby San Francisco, which of course goes a long way in making any potential commute to work about as tolerable as possible. Nearby Cascade Canyon is easily one of our favorite places to go for a hike or mountain bike ride, and all the restaurants, bars, sidewalk cafes, and of course the famous Art Deco-style theatre help combine to give downtown Fairfax the kind of energy and character locals want in thier hometown, all without being overwhelming or going overboard in any way imaginable.
