Have you seen a Roadkill Cactus? 🌵
I was searching for a plant to fill a new talavera pot at our front door, and I was attracted to this cactus because I thought it looked like it was waving HELLO. Or saying, Welcome, come on in! But when I read the label and its name was "Roadkill Cactus", I had to have it.  From the front it looks like many other varieties of cactus, but take a look at its profile from the side.  It is flat as a pancake.  Or a roadkill.  Ha! I hope that it feels right at home, … (14 comments)

Why Now is the Time to List your La Quinta Home 

We have had a crazy year so far, and the real estate market is no different. It has been an unusually active spring and summer despite the hot temperatures and the absence of most home owners in the off season.  So why would now be the best time to list your home? Here are a few reasons:
1.  HIGH DEMAND:  Californians are tired of staying home. They do not want to get on a plane.  The desert makes perfect sense for a weekend getaway, second home, investment property, or part-time residence.  LA … (3 comments)

La Quinta Real Estate Market May 2020
La Quinta real estate including the entire Coachella valley and Palm Springs area is a microclimate unlike other California real estate markets.  We are unique in the fact that a high percentage of the real estate are second homes.  We are also seasonal and many desert dwellers leave for the permanent residence in the summer.  Because of this, our market is unique to our valley.  Our busy season runs from November-April- that is when the most people are here enjoying our sunny weather, golf, mountains, hiking, swiming, dining, and desert air.

HOT weather, HOTTER real estate, COOL things to do in La Quinta!
JULY is typically our hottest month in La Quinta, CA.  Most residents have headed back to their homes in Colorado, Washington, Montana, or cooler beach cities in California.  With 55 days already over 100°, and an average temperature of 107°... I don't blame them.  Even many of my fellow full-timers here are bugging out and heading to the mountains or the coast.  Just a few days away can be all you need to refresh and come back home with a better attitude. 
 Because of the heat, fewer visitors, and residents- summer … (5 comments)
