Palm Springs Morning Real Estate Market Update 09/08/2009



Good  Morning,


I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend!


Sales numbers for August are now complete.  In the last month we sold 759 homes here in the Palm Springs area. That’s increase of 97 homes or 14.7% to last year sales.

The to an end coming up to $8000 federal tax incentive have really sparked a fire for first time home buyers in August.


First time home buyers have till December 1 to find and close on their new home. With a mix of first time home buyers, domestic and foreign investors, some of our listings are seeing multiple offers and are selling over asking price.


The Federal government has now lifted the 90 days moratorium for Bank Owned Homes for Sale ! properties. I am expecting new foreclosures to hit the market as soon as next week. Some of these properties are now selling for $50 - $60 per sqft. Remember! Current replacing or building cost lays around $125 per sqft, and that does not include the land value.


We have just launched a brand new website just for bank owned Homes here in the Palm Springs Area.


For more information or to receive a complete list Bank Owned Homes for Sale ! properties Visit:   http://www.


So I recommend for those who are looking for a steal to be prepared and get pre-approved for a loan before you make the offer.  If you are planning to pay cash for a property, make sure to contact your bank and get a letter of “Proof of Funds”


I am expecting with the new Foreclosures this month we will set again record breaking sales numbers in September.  It’s just a good time to buy and invest in Real Estate .





And here is Monday Morning Coffee




have a great week !

"The philosophy of the classroom in one generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next."
~ Abraham Lincoln


What do children and government have in common? That depends on which classroom you visit. If you have children and are actively involved in their lives, you are likely to encounter a classroom filled with intelligent, interested, involved and respectful children.

Unfortunately, many teachers today will tell you that's not what they are seeing. In some 1st & 2nd grade settings, children fall asleep because they spent the night in the family car while mom or dad sold drugs. Others are antagonistic and disrespectful, traits also learned from other family members. Still others are raised in a "no rules" family, where parents simply abdicate their parental responsibilities.

Many parents still take their responsibilities seriously. In fact, there appears to be a resurgence of young parents who teach their children the values of honesty, integrity, and service to others. It's about time. If you're one of them, I applaud your commitment to making the world a better place.

There has also been a dearth of honesty, respect and morality over the past 30 years or so. Children brought up during that time often experienced the negative effects of a no rules society. Today those same individuals are beginning to lead companies and be elected to office, yet we are surprised that company CEO's and elected officials could ever lie and mislead as they have been exposed to do recently.

As the children of today's classrooms are disposed to believe and behave, so will they as the adults of tomorrow's generation. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle, you can make a difference for the next generation of leaders. Take time to encourage, nurture, and teach the children in your family. Sometimes, a single comment or gesture can give a child the impetus to become great.
