Palm Springs Sizzles!

The days of sleepy Palm Springs appear to be over.  A new generation has begun to discover this oasis a mere 2 hours from Los Angeles and San Diego and only 3.5 hours from Las Vegas.  The restaurant, club and gallery scene has expanded exponentially as has real estate in the last year.  Indeed, Leonardo Di Caprio just purchased the old Dinah Shore estate and Anne Hathaway is reported to be looking for her Palm Springs escape.  Palm Springs is experiencing its stunning resurgence as a destination of cool!

Will New Immigration Rules Have An Effect On Luxury Sales?

The Canadian Government recently announced the cancelling of it's entrepreneur class visa.  There had been a backlog of at least 52,000 applicants who had indicated a desire to purchase a home and settle in the Metro Vancouver area.  This new government policy could have the effect of slowing the sale of luxury homes or at least having a downward price effect.  At the same time, the government has mused about the possibility of putting new immigration categories in place later this year.  If it does, the recent announcement's effect may be mitigated.  Stay tuned!
