Dear Friends,

With October comes our traditional high season in the Coachella Valley: clear, sunny skies, cooler temperatures, more visitors, and more activity of every kind -  bringing a corresponding increase in real estate inventory to the market, and more prospective Buyers to consider each listing.

The Coachella Valley always has an amazing inventory of properties currently Active for Sale, which - coupled with the beautiful weather - make Autumn a great season for Sellers who are serious about selling, to meet actual Buyers, who are seriously interested in Buying.

Local statistics show an overall increase of 4.3% in the median sales price from $345,000, at September 30, 2016, to $360,000, at September 30, 2017. This reflects the overall continuing upward trend, from its low point in the 3rd quarter of 2011. Area prices have once again returned to their long-term 4% overall growth curve, and September's median value of 71 days on market is nine days less than it was a year ago.

Whether you are looking to buy or sell, I can offer the highest levels in real estate expertise and professionalism. Please contact me, and allow me to help guide you through that process.

In addition to the TWA Flight Center at JFK, in New York, and the Gateway Arch, in St. Louis, Saarinen designed many now-classic furnishings for Knoll that have proven both innovative and timeless.

architecture 101


What is the difference between modern and contemporary architecture? Why the distinction? At their most literal, "contemporary" is the architecture being produced now - the architecture of the moment. "Modern" architecture, on the other hand, broke with the past - specifically, the traditional styles of the period before the Industrial Revolution.
