International Tamale Festival This Weekend The annual International Tamale Festival in Indio is not to be missed this weekend! This is the 23rd year for the festival, which takes place every year in December.

Communities in Indio with No HOA Living in a neighborhood with a homeowners associates (HOA) has its pros and cons but the choice is yours. If you wish to stay away from HOA's, Indio has several nice communities to choose from. If you don't want an additional monthly payment on top of your mortgage, insurance, and property taxes, a community with no HOA is a nice choice. Indio has many neighborhoods available with home prices currently ranging from $200,000 to $400,000. For home buyers looking for a nice community without an HOA, I recommend looking at some of the following neighborhoods: Bella Tierra Bella Vida Cheyenne Ranch Desert Song Del Rey Palms Encanto Madison Ranch Montego Dunes Palm Meadows Palmwood Rancho Verde Rincon Santa Fe Homes Shields Ranch Shadow Hills Villas Sunburst ...

Does Talavera Require Flood Insurance When purchasing a home in Talavera, the most common question home buyers have  regards the flood insurance requirement of homeowners. The popular neighborhood in Indio is highly sought after for its spacious & newer two-story homes.  Will Talavera Have Flood Insurance Forever? In 2013, the community board members of Talavera started looking into what was necessary to eliminate flood insurance in the community. Although it's a meticulous process involving many different entities including, the Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the City of Indio, the process appears to be slowly moving in the right direction. The first step to eliminating the flood insurance requirement in Talavera was for the CVWD ...

Home Prices & Values in Indio -  A Look at 2006, 2009, & 2014 I started my real estate career in 2003, right around the time real estate in Southern California started taking off like fireworks on the 4th of July. Back then real estate was more like taking fast food orders than anything else. In Indio, real estate home values peaked during 2006. As with most things, what goes up must come down. We saw a gradual decline in prices before everything seemed to come to a complete halt. Then home values came crashing down. Home values dropped to their lowest level in 2009. Like everyone else in the country, I trudged along and thankfully managed to survive.  On the Rebound Something changed in 2012. Inventory levels in Indio came to a screeching halt. With such low inventory levels home buyer...

Shadow Ranch Short Sales Indio CA The highly sought after neighborhood of Shadow Ranch in Indio, California is no stranger to short sales. Like many newer neighborhoods in Indio, Shadow Ranch was not spared from short sales and foreclosures. Short sales can be profitable for home buyers who have time and a little patience. Shadow Ranch Homes for Sale Ronald Christopher & Associates just closed escrow on 83432 Wagon Rd, Indio CA.

Most Desirable Neighborhoods in Indio, CA Indio was named the fifth fastest-growing city in California according to a new population estimates report released by the California Department of Finance. Indio's population grew about 4% from last year to account for 81,393 people according to the report. It doesn't surprise me that Indio has seen such growth, the city has many desirable neighborhoods to choose from. Before the economic downfall, Indio was seeing a tremendous amount of new building and new home growth. New home sales are expected to pick up again now that the inventory levels in the desert have declined to less than 2 months supply. There is a high demand for homes in the city of Indio. I believe we will be seeing a lot of new home builders coming back into this market as ea...

New Home Communities in Indio, CA Because of the low real estate inventory in the Palm Springs area, some home buyers may consider a new home purchase as the best option for them. Indio is a popular city for new home communities because it still has room for the growth. As the largest city in the Coachella Valley, Indio is also one of the fastest growing cities in California. I believe we will see a lot of builders breaking ground this coming year. Indio currently offers several communities with new homes for sale in a variety of price ranges. When considering a new home purchase, it is still good to work with a trusted Realtor so you will have individual representation to the builder. A good Realtor will know what a builder will be flexible with and what they won't consider when making...
