However, we've learned over the years from selling homes in the Palm Springs area, that there are little changes that can make a huge impact on potential buyers, and can even increase the value of your home! 

Here are a few that you should do right now.

1. Start on the street

An approachable home can make all the difference! A few things to consider doing at a street level: wash the entire exterior, touch up any paint that has weathered over time, remove any overgrown plants and weeds, mow the lawn, and consider adding hardware such as a door knocker or updated numbers to really add that extra “oomph.”

2. Turn to

Spring Break in Palm Springs has been legendary since the 1960's-  Palm Springs had been a spring break destination for decades, like a Daytona Beach or Cancun for college kids on the West Coast.  Party goers from all over Southern California flocked to the desert, for the  festivities, drinking, dancing, and the proverbial cruising down Palm Canyon Drive in convertables, motorcycles and the backs of trucks, while others wondered the sidewalks in swim suits armed with squirt guns and water balloons.  It was the destination for fun in the sun.

However, things came to a climax in 1986 when the partying got out of hand: a spring break riot erupted that changed Palm Springs.

The Desert Sun reported the history of the riot and released a video that

    Sunmore Estate - A Treasure Trove of Mid-Century Homes

    By Alex Dethier, 3-8-2018

    The Sunmor Estates neighborhood in central Palm Springs is a treasure trove of remarkably well maintained mid-century homes built by the Alexander Construction Company, Robert C. Higgins, and Jack Meiselman in the late 50s and early 60s. Though modest in comparison to many homes built today, these properties are sought after for their clean lines and hip provenance. When considering properties from this era, however, buyers are often forced into a dilemma between style and the economics of low efficiency.

    Let’s face it: Single paned windows, non-insulated walls, and deep pools constructed to 1950s standards aren’t the most cost-effective features for a modern-day

    Listing: 1191 Paseo El Mirador

    Presented by The Paul Kaplan Group.

    For genuine Mid-Century Modern in Palm Springs, this is the real deal, built by Jack Meiselman's El Mirador Park Development Co. in 1957. 

    Recently featured during Modernism Week 2018, this home has been carefully updated, with classic architectural details preserved. The interior offers a clean and simple palette throughout, featuring walls of glass that beautifully integrate indoors with outdoors. We love the pristine tongue and groove ceilings and those beams that penetrate through the clerestory windows. You will find the layout to be perfect for parties that flow seamlessly through the living areas. You can also spoil yourself in the privacy of the luxurious master suite.
