It's Off-Season in the Desert, But It's an On-Target Time to Buy

My buyer is ecstatic.  She made a savvy purchase in the Rancho Mirage complex she has watched since 2008.  The sellers of this delightful unit turned down an offer of $450,000 in 2008.  Two years later they accepted my client's offer of $294,000.  Yes, home prices in the California desert took a deep nose-dive of approximately 60% give or take a few percentage points depending on the location.

 

If you are thinking about a second home or retirement villa now is a great time to brave the heat and find a fabulous deal.  From condos to estates the prices are slashed.  There are many areas and price range points to choose from; you're sure to find one that's a perfect fit for your lifestyle and your budget.
