Why Is Palm Springs California The Best Place For A Retirement Vacation Home?
In a nutshell, here’s why:
- The economy couldn’t be better. Tax revenues up, airport arrivals up; hotel room nights and activity is off the charts.
- The downtown project redevelopment project is open with the new park slated to be built this year. How very exciting.
- The Agua Caliente Tribe is building their new Cultural Center right downtown.
- The new retail and restaurants are very exciting
- The Palm Springs Buzz Trolly is still humming along
- We now have 45 miles of bike lanes all over the city
- New construction in other areas is off the charts. New businesses, hotels and restaurants abound.
So, yes, the time is right here in Palm Springs. We are on course to become a top-tier vacation spot. The demand for all types of rentals remains very strong meaning if you have a rental, it is booked. And with so many events to choose from, this place is FUN!
It’s all about location, affordability, weather and lifestyle!
Palm Springs got its vacation/get-away chutzpah for being a playground for the Hollywood set back in the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and beyond. The stars and the movie moguls came here for fun, sun, relaxation and to get away from the Hollywood spotlight, the city mayhem and the Smog not to mention we are actually sunnier than LA! What grew up from the days gone by was what we have today, this wonderful mix of hotels, resorts, shopping, eateries, homes and condos all playing to the crowd who wants to play or kick back.
We Have the Location
Our location makes us ideal for buying a vacation or retirement property. Palm Springs is 2 hours from Los Angeles, a bit more from San Diego and we’re a half day drive from Las Vegas and Phoenix. Then there’s the California coast and all its beauty…..What a deal!
Palm Springs is Affordable
It’s all about affordability, correct? Right now in this place and in this time, there is no better time to buy here or in any of the desert cities. The prices per square foot are very attractive. And if financing is a must, with rates at 4.25%, how good does that get?
We’ve Got The Weather
Palm Springs sports about 330 days of sunshine per year and our average rainfall is about 5 inches per season. Like to live outdoors a lot? This is the place. Now mind you, summer is hot and for some, it’s too hot for some but many find it OK (like me) and even relish the heat. The winter months are warm, with daytime highs often around 60-70° and corresponding nighttime lows of 50°F to 60°F while the coolest days tend to average from 62 °F to 68 °F and corresponding nights falling to the mid 40s°F. Summer often sees daytime temperatures between 106 °F and 112 °F, with overnight lows ranging from 77 °F to 88 °F. The mean annual temperature is 74.7 °F. There are 180 days with a high reaching 90 °F or more.
And Then There’s The Lifestyle
We’ve got the life and it’s all about the outdoors. Many of us live here for the outdoor lifestyle. Golf, Tennis, hiking, biking, walking, running, swimming, sunning, entertaining and even outdoor shopping such as El Paseo or our Certified Farmers Markets. WOW! What more can you ask for? And I’m sure it’s not a complete list either.
