I follow trends closely in this neighborhood ( I live here, too!). As of this writing, 68 homes have sold year to date with a median price of $717,000 in San Anselmo. According to the Dept of Agriculture, the median household income in California in 2011 was $57,664. In Marin, it was $82,383. About 50% higher than the state median. San Anselmo Median income in 2011 was $110,592 which is even higher. So, I would say, yes, it is an upper middle class neighborhood.

Well, I think we're all lucky to be in California! A beautiful State, and Marin County and Sonoma Counties are both especially super places to live. San Anselmo has some beautiful homes, so I think you know the answer to your own question!..

Upper middle class compared to what? That's a pretty open ended question. Need a little more to go on.

San Anselmo is a very desirable location. Many families want to live in this area. You can get more for your money in San Rafael, but people love the charm of San Anselmo. The schools are also great and people love the downtown area.

If unfamiliar with the area, do visit more than once; check out area statistics; real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods; so, you should check out demographics on your own to assure your comfort level can be reached.
