SHORT SALE PALM SPRINGS CA We have created the Real Estate Short Sale Formula for under-water and distressed homeowners in Palm Springs, California. Palm Springs has many homes and families facing foreclosure, but they don't know if they would qualify for a short sale of their Palm Springs CA home to avoid complete financial devastation. What Does a Real Estate Short Sale Mean for Palm Springs CA Homeowners? The definition of a real estate short sale means that the Palm Springs CA house is about to be in foreclosure due to the default in payments of the mortgage. The owner of the Palm Springs home sells it for less than what they owe for the property. It is far better for their credit to sell it short than to lose the house to foreclosure. But Do I Qualify For a Palm Springs CA Short Sa...

ENHANCING PUBLIC AWARENESS I want to make the public aware of what we are doing and what needs to be done. Thus, I would encourage the DWA board of directors to have all of our meetings televised on channel 17 government television. If the public is informed, together we can do more. Education and information go hand-in-hand. Our elected offices, such as Palm Springs City Council and many other commissions and boards, are televised on government cable television channel 17. This transparency helps raise awareness of issues and lets us know what our elected officials are doing in an open, publicly-elected board of directors meeting. As a member of the Board of Directors, I will emphasize better attention to the constituents – particularly parts of Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs and ...

    WATER QUALITY Would you drink water from the tap? The Agua Caliente Cahuilla Band of Indians is suing the DWA, believing the DWA has been negligent in protecting the quality of our water. A water quality study conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey found higher levels of contaminants in Coachella Valley aquifers compared to the rest of the State. (Desert Groundwater Dirtier Than Most, Desert Sun, Jan 14, 2013) We cannot sit idly by as the aquifer continues to be depleted and water polluted. The purpose of the DWA is to provide clean, reliable and safe water. If elected, I will do everything I can to work with the DWA and our shared beliefs, committing to clean, safe, reliable water and to bring cohesion and cooperation, so we can operate as a unified force. Bringing both sides back...

WATER CONSERVATION I believe we can do more with a valley-wide regional water conservation plan. Our five water agencies have unique needs throughout the valley, and so do our businesses and homeowners. The Coachella Valley Regional Water Management Group is helping to address our water and planning needs. I offer a one-stop-shop website where you can find classes, rebates and events that are close to your home: www.CoachellaValleyConservation.com Once I am elected, I would like to have unique programs for water conservation, with these questions in mind: Is city government and planning commissions working closely enough with our water agencies? Can we do more with similar industries working together such as our hotels, restaurants, golf courses and city governments? I also propose to w...

Are you kidding me?????  I just went through this over LABOR DAY weekend!  Typically, a superstar weekend for selling property here in the Palm Springs, CA. area as with most areas.  My clients came in on Sunday, and left Monday about noon..how can a list Agent represent their Seller properly if they are NOT HERE? I am guessing here, but I would suspect that the Seller insisted on getting that lsiting active for Labor Day weekend.  I admit that with only 7 blurry photos, I was not impressed, but I know this property, an equestrian estate.  I've toured it and because I am familiar, I immediately sent it to some horse clients of mine coming in from the Malibu area for Labor Day. The agent, who does Real Estate as a secondary income, was gone for the weekend.  OK.  Is there anyone else in ...

Not too long ago, foreclosed homes dominated the real estate market in the Palm Springs area. They were priced to move quickly, and many had damage, ranging from the obvious (large holes in the walls) to the unnoticeable (sand poured down the drains). Many buyers perceive that foreclosed properties are bargains. While they may be value-priced, there are pitfalls to buyinga foreclosed home. The entity that foreclosed on the property has never lived in the house, and cannot disclose any of the answers to the questions buyers would like to know.   For instance, how old is the roof?  Are there any quirks in the house or the appliances? When was it last updated? Were there pets living here previously? Are the neighbors noisy?  A professional home inspection may not uncover the answers, so th...

  I captured this photo last weekend ... and I still wonder who is this mystery man in a sombrero in Palm Springs?  Could this be the most interesting man in the world?  Is he going to a party?  Will there be margaritas?  These are things I wonder about.  Can YOU identify the mystery man?
