Top 3 Reasons To Put Your Palm Springs Area Home On The Market This Fall

Dated: October 10 2018

Our fall market actually presents a number of amazing opportunities for Palm Spring sellers, and today we’ll be highlighting three reasons why putting your property on the market during these later months of the year may be the right next move for you.

1. Interest rates are rising. The Federal Reserve recently met and raised policy rates by 0.25%. Before that, mortgage rates rose as well. Now, the average interest rate for a single-family home is hovering just below 5%. For condominiums, though, the average rate is now just slightly above 5%. And more rate increases are on the horizon, with one more coming in December of this year and three more expected in 2019. As a result, today’s sellers have the opportunity to capitalize on the sense of urgency spreading among buyers right now.

2. There will be less competition. The majority of Palm Spring homes are vacation properties bought by those looking to take advantage of our gorgeous local weather. While other areas in the country grow cold during the winter months, our Palm Springs area remains nice and warm. So given the fact that people tend to flock here during later months and that September typically sees fewer listings than any other time of year, fall is an ideal time to list here in Palm Springs.

3. The weather starts to break. While temperatures are in the triple digits during the summer, they tend to become slightly milder with the arrival of fall. This draws more visitors to our area. And more people means more exposure for your listing.

If you have any other questions or would like to discuss your unique situation, feel free to give us a call at 760-565-5714 or send us an email at Will@WillCookRealEstate.com. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
