State of the Market in California Coachella Valley/Greater Palm Springs Area
“Our market still has low inventory, but we are in the middle of a shift in the market. We went from a strong seller’s market to a more level market. Days on the market are increasing and multiple offers on homes are decreasing.”
She added, “With gas prices at almost $6.00 a gallon and interest rates rising, there is a lot of uncertainty in the market. A lot of buyers are on the fence about buying currently and sellers are on the fence about selling without knowing where else to go.”
“With that being said, we are still in a strong market and in a desirable area, which is less than three hours away from major markets like Los Angeles, San Diego, and Orange County, but with more affordable housing. This brings many buyers to our market from out-of-state as well,” Nelson said.
The Greater Palm Springs area is a destination area with famous golf courses, beautiful architecture, and amazing mountain views.
“ I do believe that our market will continue to be strong in this area, but prices are slightly decreasing. Demand is still strong and will stay strong in our market for a while, “she said.
“Now that moratoriums have ended, eventually, inventory will increase which will bring prices down,” Nelson said. “We are heading into a buyer’s market. Real estate always has cycles and will go up and down, but it is still a good time to buy real estate.”
