Hello from the inferno, otherwise known as Palm Springs, California! Where the sun is always shining, the pools are always glistening, and the air conditioning is always on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Yours truly included.   Locals love to remind you, "It's a dry heat!" As if that somehow makes a difference when you're melting faster than a popsicle on the Fourth of July. Newsflash, folks: cooking your Thanksgiving turkey is a dry heat too, and that's exactly what it feels like when you open your front door – like opening the oven and getting blasted by a wave of hot air that could singe your eyebrows. I suppose this sweltering summer is karma for all those winter months spent smugly bragging to my freezing friends in Canada and Minnesota. While they were bundled up shoveling snow...

Election years often bring a sense of uncertainty and anticipation that can ripple through various sectors of the economy, including the real estate market. As voters prepare to cast their ballots, the potential changes in government policies and economic strategies can influence both buyers' and sellers' behaviors. Here’s a look at how election years have historically impacted the real estate market and what trends we might expect during these politically charged times.The Uncertainty FactorOne of the most significant impacts of an election year on real estate is the uncertainty it creates. Buyers and sellers often adopt a "wait and see" approach, delaying major financial decisions until the political landscape becomes clearer. This hesitation can lead to a temporary slowdown in market...

Selling your home is a significant decision for your Palm Springs home or any other location, and selecting the right realtor is crucial to ensuring your property gets the attention it deserves. In today's digital age, where the majority of home buyers find their homes online, the presentation of your listing can make or break the deal. Here’s why picking the right realtor is essential and what you should look for during the interview process.*Bad photos courtesy of The CloseFirst Impressions MatterStudies show that most home buyers start their search online. This means that the photos and media representing your home are the first things potential buyers see. It breaks my heart to see listings with only one photo saying "more photos coming soon." Guess what? Most buyers won’t come back...

Thursday night my Husband and I were woke out of bed to a loud chirping sound. We quickly jumped out of bed to find out where it was coming from.  First we thought it was our smoke detector, and took it off the ceiling and checked batteries, and then we realized it wasn't the smoke detector it was our CO2 detector.  We took the Carbon Detector off the wall and checked the date, and to my surprise it was 2013.  To our credit, we immediately opened the front door and a few windows while we were trying to figure out.   Did you know that carbon monoxide it is an odorless gas?  Many people do not realize that CO2 detectors are required in real estate transactions.  It falls under a Health and Safety code concerns.  If you are financing a home an appraisal of value is required by the Lender, ...

For 25 years, I, Paul Kaplan, have been a Realtor, slinging keys and showing houses. But my real passion, you ask? Gazing longingly at the vibrant community of Sun City in Palm Desert. Forget selling there, I dreamt of living there..Now, Sun City isn't exactly known for its rainbow flags. It's a gated 55+ community of 10,000 people, more like an adult Disneyland – golf courses, pickleball courts, enough water aerobics to make an Olympian blush. Even in my 40s, I confess, I daydreamed about qualifying for residency one day. My partner, Larry, just rolled his eyes."Paul," he'd say, honey dripping from his voice, "you're more likely to find a disco ball at a bingo night than a gay couple at Sun City."But the allure of an activity-packed retirement was too strong. We both craved hobbies, so...
