Rancho Mirage, Market Report for the Week August 27, 2012

The median list price in RANCHO MIRAGE, CA 92270 this week is $785,000.

Inventory has been lightening lately and the Market Action Index has been trending up. Though days-on-market is increasing, these are mildly positive indications for the market.

Supply and Demand

Home sales have been exceeding new inventory for several weeks. While still a Buyer’s market, prices seem to have responded by moving upward. If the demand trends continue, expect prices to keep marching upward, especially once we see a Seller’s Market.


The market for this zip code continues its bounce again this week. We’re a long way from the market’s high point so watch the Market Action Index to predict how long this trend will last.

Golf Country Clubs in Palm Springs and the Desert Cities

What is happening to memberships in the golf country clubs?


The majority of the buyers who want to buy homes or condos in golf country clubs are now pleasantly surprised. The access to golf with NO initiation fees or low initiation membership cost  was until now limiting me when searching for homes for my buyers. Only less than 6 in our whole valley entered that category.

The buyers ready to pay for the homes (affordable today) where staying shy away from the a lot of them because of the membership initiation cost and those prestigious country clubs got into financial trouble : not only they did not get the new memberships but they were losing the potential “spenders” at the restaurants, the golf tees fees etc… It was a LOSS LOSS situation since the beginning of this economy turn.

Finally they GOT it and a good number of great country clubs have not only lowered their membership and  some of them are even waiving them if you  buy a home within the country club. This is great news and opens up a lot of possibilities for the buyers interested in golf country clubs.
