How is the real estate market in Rancho Mirage, Ca 92270?
Since I am asked this question at least 5 times per day, I would like to share a quick analysis with you and give you some key statistics about the current market. Many buyers have come back into the market and are looking to take advantage of the lower prices and low interest rates. Another key reason is the decline in prices has stopped and has been very consistent for the last four months now, and that has been during the hot Summer season in the Desert. I can’t remember when I have had a busier Summer.
