Suzanne Somers’ 70-acre Palm Springs estate heading to auction today.

Actress Suzanne Somers’ 70-plus acre Palm Springs estate, which she and producer husband Alan Hamel have owned for four decades, goes to auction today..

The most recent asking price is $14.5 million, but the auction has no reserve bid – meaning no minimum is required to win the sale.

Perched in the mountains above downtown, the compound is called Les Baux de Palm Springs. It contains five villas built on four levels and includes eight bedrooms and 11 bathrooms.

A dining room that seats 32 guests, a separate rock house built by architect Albert Frey, hidden wine cellar and a private funicular – a tram on rails – are among the highlights.
The estate has been on and off the market for years, at one time with an asking price of $35 million, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Somers, 71, starred as Chrissy Snow in the 1970s TV hit “Three’s Company.” In 1990, she and Hamel, now 81, began selling the ThighMaster and expanded to other products and infomercials.

Scott Lyle of Douglas Elliman Real Estate and Concierge Auctions have teamed up to sell the property, which hits the auction block on Wednesday, Jan. 31 at 4 p.m.

Today's Best Mortgage Rates.
Mortgage Rates Still on a Scary Ride
Jan 30 2018, 4:15PM

Mortgage rates continued just slightly higher today.  While it wasn't the worst day they've had in terms of movement, it arrives as rates were already pushing the highest levels in more than 3 years.  In that sense, it's like a few nerve-racking moments in the dark on some scary amusement park ride.  You know it's probably not over and that there are probably scarier moments to come.  Even if the scariest moments are behind you, that won't become apparent until you're officially off the ride.  Within the scope of that analogy, mortgage rates are still very much strapped in.

Again, today itself wasn't too terrible.  Rates are only fractionally higher, on average, and most lenders only made adjustments to upfront costs while continuing to quote the same "note rates" from yesterday.  Unfortunately, the combination of today's upfront costs with yesterday's note rates is the worst deal for mortgage borrowers since the Spring of 2014.
The next 24 hours bring plenty of risk and opportunity to the short-term rate outlook.  

There's some risk that markets could react to talk of an infrastructure spending bill in tonight's State of the Union address (although the details were leaked more than a week ago).  Tomorrow's economic calendar contains 2 risky events as well.  In the morning, the Treasury will announce its updated borrowing plans for the 2nd fiscal quarter.  To whatever extent this entails greater-than-expected issuance of longer-term Treasuries, it could put immediate pressure on mortgage rates (which tend to move in concert with longer-term Treasuries.  The afternoon brings a scheduled policy announcement from the Fed.  While they're not expected to hike rates, the verbiage used in then statement will be scoured for clues about the future rate hike outlook.

This isn't an environment for floating and hoping that rates will bounce back.  We're on the scary ride until further notice.  Lock early and plan on rates moving higher until we see a broad shift in momentum.  Rest assured, I'll be writing all about it whenever it finally happens.
