Palm Desert CA Short Sale Palm Desert, California real estate has seen some drastic swings in prices, conditions and inventory. First, when the Palm Desert housing crashed in 2007, no one could sell a house.

The amazing quality of Desert life is accented by a splendid choice of homes in Palm Desert. Many types of neighborhoods make up the city.

Yet, almost next door to Bighorn you can find beautiful condos for sale starting at $200,000.

  What Does California Consider A MANUFACTURED HOME "FOUNDATION"?     In California an engineer's certification alone is not enough to verify a foundation. A recorded "Notice of Installation" aka 433A is the recognized California stamp of approval for a permanent foundation.       Beyond proof of a permanent foundation, the 433A is also a title conversion document verifying that the home and land are conjoined as real property. So how does one acquire a 433?       California has a number of stamped and approved engineered plans that carry the designation "Permanent Foundation" under Health and Safety Statute Title 25, Section 18551, which can be installed by one of our network contractors.       Presenting these plans to the local building department for a permit, having a contractor in...

  Last week on Dec 12, 2013 we attended the best Christmas work lunch ever!  First Team Real Estate went all out and provided all of the agents from First Team of the Desert with an amazing lunch at Mama Gina's on El Paseo in Palm Desert.    We enjoyed Cannelloni, chicken, seafood and  Creme Brulee along with wine to compliment our meal. The food and service was amazing but the best part was all of the agents being able to get together and just enjoy each others company and take a few minutes to be grateful for being a part of First Team Real Estate. We did a fun Holiday gift exchange as well as the many items raffled off.  Every agent walked a way with a present and a smile. Thank you First Team Real Estate for once again treating us as family!

Wowee! A great price reduction for a great Palm Desert Condo We've been struggling to sell a condo in Palm Desert, specifically in the Mountain Villas Community. This sale is a short sale, and is a great condo at a great price, but the short sale terms specify that the purchase must be owner-occupied. Realtors in Palm Desert Unfortunately this cuts out many investor buyers, tying our hands for marketing the property to the fullest. But we did receive a reprieve for the condo. The short sale lender just authorized us to drop the price considerably to $139,900! This is a very competitive price! If you're shopping for a condo in the Palm Desert area you should really take a look at the Mountain Villas Condo Community. It's beautiful, with three amazing pool areas, tennis courts and immacul...
