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.

Good Information makes Good Decisions The first step is to appraise the current market value of each of your assets. This is not necessarily what you paid for it or what you wish you could sell it for, this is the appraised value of the asset. There are a couple of excellent websites that can help you get a ballpark figure, but I recommend contacting a real estate professional who knows your local market to give you an opinion. Key questions they can help you answer include, how is the real estate market in your local area performing? Is the …
Is it time to Buy, Sell or HOLD?
Buy Low and Sell High!  Those are great words of advice to live by,  but trying to figure out the market to the perfect high and the perfect low would take a crystal ball...  I had a client that said to me once, "Jenell I don't have to sell at the high or buy at the low, I just have to get close."  
Many times as consumers we only see the drastic highs and lows of the market in an exaggerated curve of the overall state of the union and or statistics for real estate for the state of California  or even the Coachella Valley as a whole.  But, the nuances of the specific markets vary incredibly.  In any one of these scenarios there will be parts of that market that are up and some that are down or steady.  The micro data can be drastic and still even out the curve to present the market in an up or down curve.  The value of your real estate and weather it is a buyers or a sellers market varies by economic outlook, neighborhood, price and style …

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.
