Palm Sprigs Home Buyers have been quicker to return to the housing market in force than sellers, who have been showing a bit more reluctance to list their homes than is typical for this time of year. But trends are improving and as states and localities continue to moderate their COVID-19 policies, real estate activity is expected to continue to improve in the coming weeks.

Average Price per Sq. Ft. by City

This table shows current price per square foot, the price per square foot a year ago, and the price per square foot on March 19 by city for both single family residences and condominiums. It shows positive price changes in single family residences in four of the nine cities and also for the region, primarily due to the large gains in Palm Springs. Condominium prices are mixed city by city, but again are up in the region primarily due to Palm Springs.

Prices are going to continue to go up, when the buyers in Coachella Valley that are restricted are now allowed to come out and actually look at houses, they’re making a lot of purchases very quickly.
