 Our youngest years are also our most impressionable. While specific memories of riding bikes with friends or going to Disney World for the first time may not stay with us forever, the impact those moments had on our childhood last a lifetime. When you think of Palm Springs and the surrounding area, you may think of tourist attractions such as resorts and theme parks and a likely consistent influx of visitors. However, Palm Springs and the surrounding area have plenty to offer to families looking for a little fun and entertainment in a safe and welcoming environment. There’s something for all ages, from toddler to teen and beyond, making it the perfect place to settle down for the long-run.Kid-Friendly RestaurantsAre your kids open to trying something new?

The temperatures are not the only numbers climbing in Sunny Palm Springs California. At the midway point of 2017 the numbers show some impressive gains.  The Median price for a single family home has risen to $380,000.  While the sales of homes is up 16.2% in just the last three months!  The average time on market has dropped to 74 days from 89 just last year. Sales of Homes Priced $300-$400K have surged 25% and Luxury homes over $900K  are up 20%.  In fact the evenness of the sales is quite noticeable.  There are not really dead price ranges right now.     Finally, the "months supply of Inventory" - how many months our current inventory would last if no new homes were listed for sale, has dropped from just over 6 months to just over 4 months. Clearly, there is a demand for homes in th...
