palm springs real estate: Real Estate and Social Media (Why An Agent Needs To Be Up To Speed) - 02/22/10 12:35 PM
We have been on hiatus from posting for the last weeks, not because we wanted to be, but because we needed to step back and consider the larger picture. We didn't want to blog for the sake of another blog post. Was real estate's slow recovery really only about the state of the economy? Or was it recognizing that there are overarching issues that affect everything? We consider the following analysis one of our most important blog posts to date. We are certainly not immune to the vagaries and difficulties of the real estate market - from a business, but particulary personal perspective. Yet we know that there are always (1 comments)
palm springs real estate: Where's the Bottom of the Market (It's Called Knowledge & Negotiation!)? - 12/13/09 12:47 PM
It strikes me as ludicrous to consider current conditions detrimental to the seller, especially if that seller is also a buyer. Needless to say, any financial compromise incurred on a sale will likely be recovered on the buy. Everyone should consider: (1) The inventory of existing homes for sale in the Coachella Valley is the lowest since December 2005 as home sales rose 1.2 percent in September over September 2008, per reporting by the California Desert Association of REALTORS in early November. (2) Interest rates are at a 38 year low, according to Freddie Mac's weekly survey of conforming mortgage rates (4.81% on (2 comments)

palm springs real estate: Asleep At The Wheel? - 06/24/09 01:34 PM
We tell our clients: If you‘re not in the market for yourself, it‘s certainly a great time to help children or grandchildren to get into a new home. As a straight investment, if not a gift, it makes sense to recognize the appreciation that will likely outstrip the paltry interest rates currently available. We exhort them to consider the ideas we offer in our new blogpost on our business blog, Palm Springs California Real Estate: Are You Crazy For Not Buying Palm Springs Real Estate Now? Is Inflation on the Horizon? Federal Home Buyer Tax Credit Could Expand Is California Running Out Of (0 comments)
palm springs real estate: Government Streamlines Short Sale Process - 06/17/09 10:22 PM
As mentioned in our previous blog "Short Sales Revisited", the Obama Administration is planning on implementing strategies to streamline the short sale process which is long overdue and hopefully takes away the stress and frustration that up until now is customary with the short sale process. Can hardly wait ! Even with the experience we have in Short Sales, it is often very time consuming and frustrating. This new plan is a welcomed necessity. The following is a quick primer about Short Sales and the proposed "Plan" : What is a short sale? A short sale is a transaction in which the (0 comments)
palm springs real estate: Another Visionary Idea - 03/20/09 12:07 AM
You discuss the fact that there is ample inventory to choose from , that asking prices have been adjusted to be realistic, that interest rates are near historic lows and that loans are available with tax credits for first time buyers and buyers of primary homes. Buyers should be clamoring to buy! Their reservation: "What if I lose my job?" The answer is Supplemental Unemployment Insurance. Let's find the carriers with which we can collaborate so that Realtors and/or Sellers can offer this major benefit to prospective buyers. Please contact me with ideas and to discuss. - Stephen Love; email@example.com; www.palmspringsgreathomes.info; www.loveofthedesert.com
