Novato Real Estate Market

Novato's housing market is pretty diverse for a medium sized town that only has a population of around 52,000 people. Condos and townhouses in Novato are a great entry-level option for area home buyers to consider, and most of the attached living spaces in town rarely exceed $600,000. Single-family homes for sale in Novato also come in all shapes, sizes, and price ranges, and interested home buyers can reasonably expect most detached single-family homes in the Novato area to start somewhere close to $700,000 and go up from there.

As the fastest growing real estate market in the county, more new houses were built and sold in Novato during 2006 than any other city in Marin. Much of the growth has occurred at Hamilton Field, as well as several smaller residential developments. In addition to the newer subdivisions, there are older established areas with mid-century ranch style homes, and larger properties outside subdivision boundaries. The eclectic mix of properties in Novato ranges from multimillion-dollar estates in gated communities to modest tract homes and condominiums. Buyers who tour the area can find waterfront homes with access to the San Pablo and San Francisco Bays, horse properties nestled into the hills, and contemporary style homes on the fairways of golf courses. With the building boom in Novato there truly is something to suit every taste.

Novato Community Amenities

Not only is Novato Marin's northernmost city, it is also the fastest growing city in the county. There are already a number of nationally recognized companies already based in Novato and the increasing population creates opportunity for more commercial development. Another reflection of Novato's strong economy is the arrival of a Trader Joes in March 2006 and ongoing expansion of the Vintage Oaks shopping mall. With over 50 major outlets, including Costco and Target, it truly is a one-stop shopping destination, something much appreciated with today's busy lifestyles.

Olompali State Historic Park lies just north of Novato, and countless small parks and protected nature preserves are scattered all over town as well. Downtown Novato features plenty of small shops, restaurants, and cafes, and there's also a number of big box retailers along Redwood Boulevard too, only adding to the convenience of living in Marin County's one-and-only Novato community.

Novato is somewhat of an overlooked treasure. Even lifelong residents are sometimes surprised by all there is to do in and around this busy city. In the summertime, Tuesday evenings bring the Farmers Market. With crafts, carriage rides, and live music there is something to please the entire family. If structured activities are what you are looking for, the Novato Parks and Recreation department offers year round programs for kids of all ages. However, it doesn't stop there. The Novato area has more easily accessible space than just about any other part of Marin. Hiking, biking, horseback riding, boating, fishing, and other outdoor recreational activities are sometimes, quite literally, in the back yard.
