Real Estate Insights By Maurice – “Uniquely Different”

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

The little recognized fact about the Palm Springs Real Estate Market is simply that our market is “uniquely different”. The underlying currents and directional trends that shape our local Real Estate Market’s current state do not compare with what maybe happening in other parts of California, or in cities throughout the US. I consider the real estate market in Palm Springs to be “special and matchless”.

The front page headline from the Thursday, March 25th issue of The Desert Sun Newspaper says it all: “Area Home Sales Buck Trend, Up 7.3% — Other Regions Saw Drops in February Sales” “People Want to Live Here!” Read the story at:

Obvious conclusions to be drawn about the Palm Springs Real Estate Market using my detailed market trend data are:

1. Palm Springs’ single family home and condo prices are very affordable as compared to other areas of California and the country.

2. The majority of February’s home sales, or 62.1%, are conventional sales and not Foreclosures or Short Sales (this has been the trend for the past several months). Current Active listings reflect this same trend, with only approximately 10% of the listings Foreclosures, and 8% are Short Sales.

3. “Good Deals” do exist on properties in Palm Springs today. Current “conventional” home prices reflect the impact of prior-period Foreclosures and Short Sales as well as the steep price declines from the peak ’06 sales levels. The Palm Springs Real Estate Market continues to improve, after bottoming out in Q-1 of 2009, with the number of home and condo sales and sale prices increasing month-over-month.

Blue Lights Signal New Jetted Spa’s Grand Opening

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Construction of our new in-ground, jetted spa is now complete and how BLUE it is. At night, the spa’s soft blue light fills the air providing calming light therapy especially while the many jets are softly adding oodles of bubbles and there you sit fully entranced by the soothing waters while gazing upward to the clear, starry night sky. Warming, soothing and simply a ‘cool’, yet ‘hot’, new addition to The Hacienda at Warm Sands. We invite you to experience the blue lights, the soothing bubbles and the star-filled night skies (try using Sky Walk on your I-phone as your stargazing astronomy guide).

The Hacienda at Warm Sands offerred impeccable service in a beautiful setting.

Monday, March 21st, 2011

My partner and I were thrilled with our February stay at The Haceinda at Warms Sands. Owners Maurice and Jim could not have been more hospitable. The setting is quiet and the grounds are beautiful. The service was impeccable — every staff member was so helpful and courteous. There was no bad attitude, which is so common nowdays. This is a high caliber place. Our room was very clean; the bed very comfortable. The location was very convenient– so easy to get to area restaurants and bars. We highly recommend it!

It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than The Hacienda!

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

My partner and I have stayed at The Hacienda so many times we have lost count. The Hacienda absolutely knows how to handle every single detail so that you don’t have too. The grounds are impeccable and absolutely beautful. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. The two-person showers are a divine luxury. The staff is super friendly and goes out of their way to be sure guests are introduced to each other. The continental breakfast always has fresh fruit and delicious muffins. Lunch is provided daily and you order from a menu. It really doesn’t get any better.
