Marin Market Update
March-May Market: Year-over-Year Comparisons
Some indications of year-over-year cooling from the very hot spring 2018 market, pretty much across the board. The median house sales price ticked down a bit. The larger decline for condos should be taken with a grain of salt due to the relatively low number of condo sales over the period.

"The launch of 5G will be similar to turning on your microwave, opening its door, and leaving it on for the rest of your life. There’s good reason why hundreds of scientists are taking action against the wireless industry."- Paul Wagner.

Here are a few tips that can protect you, in the best possible way, from 5G radiation:

  1. Keep your distance as much as possible. Keep phones out of bedrooms.
  2. Measure levels whenever possible.
  3. Buy an EMF shield. HERE are some ideas.
  4. Protect your home as much as possible. How close is your home to a cell tower?
  5. Eat a healthy diet to boost your immune system.
  6. Try earthing, eg: walking barefoot. There are some products that minimize radiation.
  7. Educate yourself, team, friends and family as much as possible.
