Here in the Palm Springs Valley cities..and I mean ALL of them, it is definitely a Sellers' Market.  That does NOT mean Sellers can attach a non-realistic number to the value of their property and then sit back and sift through the multiple piles of offers they are sure to receive!  Humans are strange this way..we always seem to want MORE. When is enough enough when it comes to pricing your property?  First off..hire a Realtor that you as a Seller can trust.  Base your choice on their competence..their knowledge of YOUR direct market.  How are they justifying the price/sf they are suggesting you list at?  Interview more than one potential List Agent and LISTEN to how they came up with the List number and why they think that price is the "sweet spot." I went into a listing appointment a ...

Is it kharma?  Just an extension of Murphy's law?  It is uncanny..no matter how well I plan.  I get those files in order, I have my TC and my buyer's agent lined up for any potential showing or new clients.  I am so organized it is scary! I am not leaving the Palm Springs Valley if everything isn't as much in order as humanly possible.  Then BOOM!  The phone rings off the hook, e-mails, Escrow problems, Title questions, Home Warranty problems.  I now believe my own title.. "If you want to make money as a Realtor....Leave town!" Tongue in cheek of course, but cliché's become cliché's because there is some truth behind the saying..and that sure is true here.  I love that I am a busy Realtor, but it really is incredible how it seems to happen every single time!  Wow..is there something in ...

I spent the entire day the day before yesterday "Previewing."  Some buyers know that it's part of my service, but do they put a value on it?  I'm not sure.  It's easy to send comps, CMA's, lease comps..all the things you can do on the computer..still hours spent prepping for the actual show, but add previewing and often it's double time. Previewing..how important is it?  I preview a lot, but I have to admit that I do it as much for myself as for my clients.  I cannot stand the idea of looking like an idiot..like I don't know the neighborhood, the other homes for sale, the DIFFERENCES between the homes for sale.  I also really like knowing where I'm going.  Now, let me state right here..I am the Realtor with the broken GPS.  Because it's broken..I mean I simply did not get that direction...

How to Purchase Real Estate in Palm Springs CA Internationally International home purchasers are common in Palm Springs, California. Palm Springs and the surrounding cities have a high percentage of international home buyers and snowbirds because the weather is sunny and warm year round. Most international home buyers pay cash for their purchase but some do finance as financing is available for reasonable interest rates these days. If you are to be international at the time you complete your purchase in Palm Springs, your agent should know which options for international signings and notaries will be acceptable by the recorder's office across the United States. I sold a home earlier this year to a Canadian buyer that financed a portion of his purchase. Luckily the transaction went smoot...
