Every year the listed housing inventory in the Coachella Valley increases dramatically in the winter "season".  In the summer of 2014 the listed inventory was below 3,000, and in the winter season of 2014/2015 the inventory shot up to 4,948.  In the summer of 2015 the inventory was around 3,500, and in the winter season of 2015/2016 the inventory peaked at 5,498.  What does this mean for sellers?  Less competition is on the market in the summer!  For the last two years almost 50% of home sales have taken place in the summer.   Bottom line: we're here through the summer and ready for business!
