Why Is Palm Springs California The Best Place For A Retirement Vacation Home

Palm Springs Mid-Century ModernWhy Is Palm Springs California The Best Place For A Retirement Vacation Home?

Time For An Update:

This past week, I attended the State Of The City event at the Convention Center.  Over 400 interested citizens were there with me as we looked at out progress of last year and then looked forward to the good things on the horizon.

So here are the highlights of what I heard:

  • The economy couldn’t be better. Tax revenues up, airport arrivals up; hotel room nights and activity is off the charts.
  • The downtown project will begin to see things go vertical very soon. And the Kimpton will be open by October, 2016.  How very exciting.
  • Most of the subterranean work for the entire parcel is about done.
  • The first tenant to announce their lease is West Elm.
  • The new Trolly is a HUGE success with 35,000 riders so far. (2/20)
  • Lots of new bike lanes coming and more street resurfacing than ever.
  • New construction in other areas is off the charts.  New businesses, hotels and restaurants abound.

So, yes, the time is right here in Palm Springs. We are not only back, we are on course to become the a top-tier vacation spot. The demand for all types of rentals remains very strong meaning if you have a rental, it is booked.  And with so many events to choose from, this place is FUN!

Give us a call if any of this makes you want to buy your next home. Or if you want to move up, let’s talk!
Easy, It’s all about location, affordability, weather and lifestyle!

Palm Springs got its vacation/get-away chutzpah for being a playground from the Hollywood set back in the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and beyond. The stars and the movie moguls came here for fun, sun, relaxation and to get away from the Hollywood spotlight, the city mayhem and the Smog not to mention we are actually sunnier than LA!.  What grew up from that was what we have today, this wonderful mix of hotels, resorts, shopping, eateries, homes and condos all playing to the crowd who wants to play.

We Have the Location

Our location makes us ideal for buying a vacation or retirement property.  Palm Springs is 2 hours from Los Angeles,  a bit more from San Diego and we’re a half day drive from Los Vegas and Phoenix.  Then there’s the California coast and all its beauty…..What a deal!

Palm Springs is Affordable

It’s all about affordability, correct?  Right now in this place and in this time, there is no better time to buy here or in any of the desert cities. The prices per square foot are at an all time low and won’t get any cheaper.  And if financing is a must, with rates at 4-5%, how good does that get?

We’ve Got The Weather

Palm Springs sports about 330 days of sunshine per year and our average rainfall is about 5 inches per season.  Like to live outdoors a lot? This is the place.  Now mind you, summer is hot and for some, it’s too hot but many find it OK and even relish the heat.  The winter months are warm, with daytime highs often between 73 °F and 86 ° and corresponding nighttime lows of 50°F to 60°F while the coolest days tend to average from 62 °F to 71 °F and corresponding nights falling to the mid 40s°F.  Summer often sees daytime temperatures between 106 °F  and 112 °F, with overnight lows ranging from 77 °F to 90 °F.  The mean annual temperature is 74.7 °F.  There are 180 days with a high reaching 90 °F or more.

And Then There’s The Lifestyle

We’ve got the life and it’s all about the outdoors.  Many of us live here for the outdoor lifestyle.  Golf, Tennis, hiking, biking, walking, running, swimming, sunning, entertaining and even outdoor shopping such as El Paseo or our Certified Farmers Markets.  WOW!  What more can you ask for?  And I’m sure it’s not a complete list either.  Want more?  Palm Springs has one of the best and finest assortments of eating establishments anywhere.  We’re not talking about the usual corporate schmaltz.  Nope these are all fine independently owned serving food of all prices ranges, types and styles; something for every palette too.

So there you have it.  Now your next step is to talk to us about buying you home tight here in our Paradise called Palm Springs California.
