Who is buying properties in the Palm Springs and Palm Desert
Who is buying properties in the Palm Springs and Palm Desert ? Because of the economy and the opportunity it brought , most of the potential buyers until 2 months ago were the ones that saw opportunity and stretched to take advantage of the economy and the real estate market adn the foreclosures (most of the foreclosures were in that price range) .They just recognized that if they wanted to buy a condo or any home in Palm Springs or Palm Desert now was the time , but because of the lender’s limitation most of them looked at cash deals and under 300K . The inventory for foreclosures in that price range is decreasing significantly.
Things have changed. The properties between 400K and 800K are now selling . We can see them get into “pending” (under contract) each and every day. Mainly in Palm Desert – also few of them being foreclosures but buyers are understanding that it will not last and they too are taking advantage.
