HOT weather, HOTTER real estate, COOL things to do in La Quinta!

JULY is typically our hottest month in La Quinta, CA.  Most residents have headed back to their homes in Colorado, WLa Quinta summerashington, Montana, or cooler beach cities in California.  With 55 days already over 100°, and an average temperature of 107°... I don't blame them.  Even many of my fellow full-timers here are bugging out and heading to the mountains or the coast.  Just a few days away can be all you need to refresh and come back home with a better attitude. 


 Because of the heat, fewer visitors, and residents- summer is generally

La Quinta real estate "slower" in the real estate market.  BUT NOT THIS SUMMER!

The MARKET has been blazing HOT since May!  I have closed 3 homes since June, and have 3 more in escrow...including a new listing with multiple offers the 2nd day on the market and an accepted offer OVER asking!





Our new Century Imax Theatre on Washington St. in La Quinta is the perfect antidote for cooling off here.  We head to an early afternoon matinee in the heat of the day, and then stay cool at happy hour at La Rue Wine Bar in Old Town La Quinta on the way home!  Later on, a dip in the pool and you have a perfect La Quinta summer day!

Kathy, I love your cool crisp photo's of a typical La Quinta California Day! A Matinee and a glass of wine after negotiation on a couple of homes sounds great! What a lifestyle! Thanks for your entry into the HOT Contest!

Hi Kathy

Having been to the desert multiple times in the past in both July and August I get what you mean about the temps! But there is something wonderful about the warmer evenings than we get here along the coasat.

Congrats on the business. Sounds like a really hot market right now!!
