Golfers at Mountain View Country Club in La QuintaLet’s get right to the point. Real estate sales here in the desert continue to increase and things just seem to be getting busier by the month. Our local escrow company reported last week that new purchase contracts that were opened in February were up 60% over February of 2011.

Our real estate team had more clients viewing properties in February than any month in our history. Prospective buyers who have been looking at desert properties for the past two or three years are now buying. We’re also seen an increase in sales from people we’ve worked with for only a short time. Properties across all price ranges are active with big movement in those over $1 million.

Sheri Dettman & Associates Up 100% Year-To-Date

Our first three months of sales this year are on track to equal six months of sales in 2011. And 2011 was up 30% over the 2010! Keep in mind that our local desert inventory continues to tighten up in line with increased sales, so don’t wait too long to find a great value on your perfect home at a historically low interest rate.

We’d love to see you on your next visit to the desert. Please try to give us a few days notice to reserve a spot on our calendar and remember–Real estate is indeed local!
