Andalusia La Quinta New Home Bath

Buyers of Palm Springs area homes and condos continue to find good values in most desert cities. That said, rising prices for properties sold during May 2014 have slowed overall unit sales a bit in some market segments. Foreclosure and short sale property sales during May dropped 50% compared with May 2013.
