What's Hot This Summer


Welcome to Summer time, if visions of sandy beaches and cool breezes come to mind then you don’t live in the Coachella Valley.   As you may know it gets a little HOT here in the summer.  The good news is there are plenty of fun summer events to distract you  on those days when it is just inhumane to be outside.  Here are some of my HOT picks for Summer Fun in the Desert!
  


Palm Springs Restaurant Week   June 2nd -11th
This is by far one of my favorite events in the summer… The selection of restaurants is incredible and the menus offered by the participating restaurants is wonderful.  This is not an early Bird Special this is truly these restaurants showing off their best fare!  So, take a few minutes and check out the link many of your favorite restaurants are probably already featured and make your reservations ASAP many of these resultants book up fast.



Splash House June 9th -11th, The Fifth Year! 

Another fun time at a mini Coachella Event!  Tickets are reasonably priced for the overall entertainment value.  Venues include The Saguaro Palm Springs, Riviera Palm Springs, and Renaissance Palm Springs.  Each hotel hosts a poolside stage programmed with festival artists.  Shuttles run non-stop between the venues so you can hop to another pool at any time.  Must be 21


The Palm Springs International ShortFest  June 20-26 
This is also a great event and a great place to take advantage of FREE airconditionig.  I have been every year and have really enjoyed the films and some of the panel discussions.  It is wonderful how supportive Palm Springs has been to the film industry and it has paid off in bringing tax dollars to our community.  Come out and cool off at some of these great films.   The festival also includes the ShortFest Forum, a series of panels, master classes and roundtable discussions designed to provide emerging filmmakers with both the knowledge and the networking opportunities to further their careers in the film industry.

I Love My Canadians!

In the past couple of years Canadians have made up over 30% of my sales and now my Canadians seem nowhere to be found.Due to the fact that the Canadian Dollar has taken a huge hit in the exchange rate and our home prices have continued to go up, my Canadian clients have had to face a double dose of inflated reality.I found this really great article that explains the disappearance of the Canadian Home buyer.The questions begging to be answered is will the strength of their dollar improve anytime soon as I only see housing getting stronger in the next couple of years.So, even with the escalation in price and deflation of currency I still think the deal are out there and it is still a good time to buy.
“What a price Canadians have paid lately, though.Over the last two years their purchasing power here in the US has declined sharply, and since just last summer it’s flown farther south than a goose, which really should be their national bird (apparently they can’t agree on one).Just look at…

Millennials And The Coachella Valley Real Estate Market

The Millennials are coming into the Real Estate market and what does that mean for a market like the Coachella Valley? In the next few years at least $16 trillion of ultra-high net worth (UHNW) individual’s wealth will be passed on to the next generation over this period, spawning a new crop of multimillionaires, the Wealth-X and NFP according to the Family Wealth Transfers Report “As self-made UHNW baby boomers start passing on their wealth to their children, the importance of entrepreneurship and hard work will be put to the test,” the report said. 
One of the largest beneficiaries of the wealth will be the the Millennials and they are not buying the larger country club properties that make up the bulk of the Valleys Luxury listing inventory. Millennials are looking at walkability scores, energy efficiency, Smart homes and provide a comfortably Chic lifestyle. Millennials want location, location, location, less maintenance and smaller homes with less outdoor space and easy open inter…
