March 2018 Greater Palm Springs Area Housing Market Report

Some markets have had increases in signed contracts but the vast majority of the nation continues to experience fewer closed sales and lower inventory compared to last year at this time. Greater Palm Springs Area Housing Market was one of market that had increases in singed contracts.

In March 2018, Closed Sales decreased 9.4 percent, Pending Sales increased 2.5 percent, Inventory decreased 9.9% percent over last year. The overall Median Sales Price was up 2.7 percent to $340,000.



Despite there being fewer homes for sale, buyer demand has remained strong enough to keep prices on the rise, which should continue for the foreseeable future.

The Federal Reserve raised its key short-term interest rate by .25 percent in March, citing concerns about inflation. It is the sixth rate increase by the Fed since December 2015, and at least two more rate increases are expected this year. Borrowing money will be more expensive, particularly for home equity loans, credit cards and adjustable rate mortgages, but rising wages and a low national unemployment rate that has been at 4.1 percent for five months in a row would seem to indicate that we are prepared for this. And although mortgage rates have risen to their highest point in four years, they have been quite low for several years.

Buyer demand remains very strong throughout the Coachella Valley with lower inventory. If you thought about selling your home this year, now may be the time to do it.
