Marin General Hospital Fined $100k

The California Department of Public Safety issued $675,000 in fines to ten hospitals, including Marin General Hospital in Greenbrae, from around the state over health & safety concerns.  Details were somewhat sketchy on what exactly prompted the fines, but a spokesman for CDPH said that extensive probes had uncovered incidents of failures to comply with licensing requirements that could potentially lead to serious injury or death to patients.  According to the state, Marin General’s violation was related to a failure to follow established policies and procedures relating to respiratory care.  The $100,000 fine is the hospital’s fourth administrative penalty assessed by CDPH.  In a statement, hospital staff apologized for the incident, which it said took place in June 2011, and vowed to make every effort to ensure a similar incident never occurs again.

Greenbrae Condo Sales from $500K-$1million

In Greenbrae, in the past six months, there were just 4 condominium sales between $500K-$1 million. The reason for this is likely that there is just one small part of the Greenbrae area in Marin County that has condominiums and that is on the Spyglass Hill.

This property located on the Lower Via Casitas in Greenbrae is unique in that it is nearly new (completed in 2007). The property sold in February 2008 at $865,000! Just two years later the same property sold for $640,000.

This is a great example of the types of properties that you can get in this market.

This other property located on Corte Real in Greenbrae sold for $585,000.

There are not a lot of condominiums to choose from in the Greenbrae area, but in many other parts of Marin County, there are a number of great subdivisions to choose from, especially in areas such as San Rafael and Novato.

Greenbrae Condo Sales up to $500,000

In the past six months there have been 17 condominium sales under $500,000 in Greenbrae in Marin County.  Surprisingly just a small number of these condominiums were distressed property situations (ie. Short Sale, Bank Owned properties).

This waterfront property on South Eliseo Drive in Greenbrae sold for $480,000 and was listed for $499,000.

These waterfront properties rarely come on the market for sale. Most condominiums that you see in Greenbrae for sale are not waterfront, and if they are waterfront they will usually be at a much higher price point.

This other condominium on South Eliseo Drive in Greenbrae was listed for $369,000 and sold for $350,000.

Again, it is unusual at this price point that the property was not a distressed property situation.  It would be interesting to see what the property values of these condominiums in Greenbrae were just a few years again, at the height of the market (2005/2006).
