Poolside in La QuintaYou might be surprised to learn that the Palm Springs area real estate market is actually very active year-round. People coming to look at property during the summer are usually on a mission to find a home or luxury condo before the coming winter.

700 Home Sales Monthly

On average about 700 homes and condos are sold each month in our seven primary desert cities. Sales peak at just over 900 homes sold each month from February through March compared to about 600 homes during each of the summer and fall months.

Sales so far in 2012 are outpacing 2011 so we may hit 1,000 home sales per month by sometime next winter.
