Palm Springs Vacation Home

Many of our clients at the Paul Kaplan Group are looking for part-time residences that can also be used as vacation rentals. When you are not using the home for your own enjoyment, you can rent out the home to help cover your expenses and even make a profit. Some owners manage the rentals themselves and use vacation rental websites like VRBO and Airbnb, while others go with a local management company. The Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism put out a nice post encouraging visitors to book vacation rentals and explaining the advantages. See the post here. If you are looking for real estate in the Palm Springs area, please let us know.

Butterfly Roofs in Palm Springs What is a Butterfly Roof exactly?  Its when two panels meet in the middle of the roofline and slope upward and outward, like butterfly wings in mid-flap.

Canadians have historically been huge fans of Palm Springs-  the perfect escape from cold winters, flying on direct flights from Canada directly to Palm Springs International Airport!  During our winter season, Palm Springs feels like "Little-Canada" based on the Canadian license plates seen all over the Coachella Valley!  Many have winter residences in Palm Springs, and we kindly refer to these visitors and 2nd home owners, as "Snowbirds"
