Indio's Low Supply of Inventory Working in Favor of Sellers Real Estate market data for Indio, CA provided by Tina Droessler of Today's Realty Group. Indio Home Values Fewer homes on the market has been preferential for sellers, while creating fierce competition among home buyers. We have seen four straight months of increases in the medium sales price for homes across the Coachella Valley. The 92203 zip code of Indio has favored particularly well. Some communities in this area currently have no homes listed for sale. You can imagine what happens when a new listing comes on the market in one of these neighborhoods! All in all good news for sellers. But seller's should still take into careful consideration what price they list their home at. Even though a seller may receive 10 offers on ...

Home Prices in Indio CA for December 2012 Real estate market data for Indio, CA provided by Tina Droessler of Today's Realty Group. Indio Home Prices Hot, hot, hot! That is the only word that describes Indio's real estate market. Known as one of the best areas to buy a newer home for under $200,000, it is becoming harder and harder to find such a deal. With the low levels of inventory, we are definitely seeing prices increase. Even new bank owned listings on the market are seeing an increase in list price. For home buyers who haven't bought yet, I wouldn't wait any longer because although prices are increasing, interest rates are still low. An increase in interest rates will effect how much you can afford to buy even more so. You will also want to team up with an experienced local Realt...

It is intriguing to me how few people, both locals and seasonal visitors, who are aware that the Palm Springs Valley is home to two of the largest polo clubs in the United States!  We are second only to Florida in numbers of fields and players and the economic boost the polo world brings to the Valley every season.  The two Polo Clubs, Eldorado and Empire are contiguous to each other and between them have approximately 22 active polo fields!  That's alot of land because each polo field is about the size of 9 football fields..or 300 yards by 150 yards for each field.  Imagine having that wonderful, open venue in our beautiful Valley! Eldorado Polo Club schedule and contact info.. Empire Polo Club schedule and contact info.. Trailers full of horses have started arriving to both clubs.  Ho...

Watch out for individuals claiming that they can perform credit repair services to increase your FICO scores so you can purchase a home.  Don’t do it!  Don’t believe it!  It’s a SCAM!  This information is provided based on reports obtained through individuals recently victimized in and around the city of Indio, CA.  How do these fraudsters convince you to turn over your hard earned money? a.      These crooks will prey upon their own kind.  The Hispanic community tends to trust other Hispanics, especially those who appear to be very experienced and “father-like”.  A smooth con will attempt to provide you with a sense of ease and comfort in a situation that should cause you apprehension and fear.   It is that “fear” that these crooks prey upon.  b.      They provide you with a series of ...

It's that time of year again when the horses and rigs start returning to the desert for the winter equestrian events.  Polo is HUGE in our valley.  Seems strange, but we are second only to Florida with numbers of players, horses and fields.  Our East Valley relys on the players/familes and grooms to jump the economy every single year.  Horses are GIANT business here in the Palm Springs Valley. Eldorado Polo Club has 9 fields, hundreds of stalls and turnouts, a 1/4 mile galloping track, a front office and of course the Cantina for dining and entertainment.  Field 1 features the star matches at noon and 2 pm every Sunday.  I have a box fieldside for my clients and friends..a good time for everyone. Next door at Empire Polo club, there are not only day polo matches, but also night games!  ...

Indio Real Estate - Construction on the Rise After years of a lack luster economy, Indio construction appeared to be sitting idle amongst vacant lots of blowing sand and unfinished projects. Let there be light at the end of the tunnel! New construction is on the rise according to the City of Indio. Construction on a project located at the corner of Avenue 42 and Jefferson near Bermuda Dunes on 88-acres, formally called Northgate will begin soon. The mixed-use project was started in 2009 but ultimately went into foreclosure. The project was recently purchased by Chandi Group USA according to the Desert Sun. The first part of the $70 million project will be an AM/PM gas station, followed with a hotel, an apartment building, bank and two fast food restaurants.  Another project in the North...

Homes for Sale in Indio With No Mello Roos Tax Indio is a top city of choice for many home buyers, especially first time home buyers. Indio has a lot of newer neighborhoods like those located on the North side of I-10. Many of these homes were built in 2005 or newer and offer spacious floor plans with upgrades including granite counters and great rooms. An added bonus - most of these homes are priced under $300,000! Search homes for sale in Indio. How do Mello Roos affect me?

Indio 4 Bedroom Homes for Sale Indio is a popular city for buyers who are looking for 4 bedroom homes for sale. As a Realtor who sells homes in Indio, I noticed a lot of home buyers who are looking for larger homes with 4 - 5 bedrooms tend to prefer Indio. Indio, CA is a great city for buyers to purchase a home. It is the largest city in the Coachella Valley, which means it has a lot of land still available to build on. In 2011, the City of Indio reported 205 permits were issued for new single family residential homes, showing the most growth in the Coachella Valley region.   Many areas of Indio have newer homes that are less than five years old. North of Interstate 10, you will find more than a dozen newer communities built in 2005 and 2006 that are gated and very appealing. In additio...

Sonora Wells Short Sales Indio CA Follow the yellow brick road and just beyond the cascading waterfall you enter the gates of Sonora Wells. Located between Monroe and Jackson Street in Indio, CA., Sonora Wells is a community like no other. However its distinctiveness does not exempt it from today's short sale market. Short sales are the result of the decline in home prices over the last several years. The builder of Sonora Wells, D.R. Horton, sold these homes in 2006 between $300,000 and $400,000. Unfortunately these values could not be maintained after the crash of the market and the home prices have adjusted to between $130,000 and $200,000.  From a buyer's stand point, a short sale can offer an opportunity of great value. But to save you a lot of heartache & headache, be sure to work...

Talavera Short Sales Indio CA Inside the gates of Talavera in Indio, California lies a beautiful master-planned community designed by D.R. Horton. Like many other newer home communities in Indio, Talavera has had a good share of short sales. Homes originally sold from the builder in 2005 for $300,000 to $400,000+. With the downturn in the economy, home prices have since dropped to the likes of $110,000 to $200,000+. Because of the lower property values, many homeowners have had to short sale. For home buyers who have a little time and some patience, short sales may be the route to go but it is critical to with an experienced short sale agent. Search Indio Short Sale Listings. Talavera's inventory is at an all time record low, reduced from the many shorts sales and foreclosures being sou...
