Palm Springs Valley Home Prices Up, Prices Down In Most of the U.S.

Home Sales in the Palm Springs Valley Are Going UpPalm Springs Valley home sales are trending upward, reports show.  Meanwhile, countrywide sales are declining.  Home sales here in our valley rose 9% last month compared to April 2011.  Median prices in the valley -meaning half sold for more, half sold for less – rose up to $218,000 . . . from $210,000 in March, $195,000 in February and $165,000 in January – - – according to Data Quick.

California Desert Association of Realtors compiles home prices differently from Data Quick, basing them exclusively from the Desert Area MLS sales.  It listed median home prices at $230,000 for single family homes and $194,500 for condominiums.

Home prices have been boosted, in part, by the drop in availability of low priced properties such as foreclosures, short sales, etc. and regular homes.  This low inventory encourages the sale of the good homes . . . and they sell quickly.  So it’s not just that the lower priced homes are selling . . . the high end market is improving also.

Experts believe that record low interest rates, housing affordability and an economy that continues to recover will mean a steady improvement for the housing market through the end of this year.  Some see housing prices going up 10% between now and a year from now.

So if you’re thinking about buying a new home, your window of opportunity for best prices and most affordable loans could be a small one.  Your local realtor, Kimberley Kelly,  has been helping clients Buy and Sell homes in our Valley for 11 years.  Her track record speaks for itself . . . feel free to give her a call for a free consultation regarding your real estate needs!  Call her now at 760-285-3578 or email her at  You’ll be glad you did !!!
