Novato Real Estate
It’s an exciting time to live in Novato, which is Marin County’s second-largest city by population. It’s the county’s northernmost city, located 20 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s sunny here, outside the fog belt, and its weather is a selling point.
We find that a good number of home buyers who come from outside Marin typically don’t include Novato among their first choices to live. The perception is that it’s too far from San Francisco. So they’ll start a home search farther south, but after they see how much more house they get for their money in Novato, many end up buying here. And guess what? They love it and they stay and raise their kids here.
Novato is the northernmost city in Marin and it’s one of the most affordable.
