Palm Springs is THE modernism capital of the world!  That’s the unofficial nickname given to Palm Spring for its high concentration of mid-century homes and buildings.  Tourists flock to this city to appreciate the architecture, potentially taking a private guided architectural tour that are run throughout the year.  Many are lured to purchase a mid-century home in one of Palm Springs famous neighborhoods.  What better way to enjoy a martini than poolside under a sweeping butterfly roof!  

Palm Springs is quite easy to get involved in the mid-century architecture and design scene.  Two prominent organizations, the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation (PSPF) and the

Until recently, the best time to buy a house had long been considered spring and summer. But to our surprise- a recent study has found that Fall may actually be the best time to buy.  And even though the temps are still high in Palm Springs, you can still tour listings with an iced pumpkin spice latte to get yourself in the mood for fall.
