My husband Bill and I visited Bucatini Trattoria in La Quinta last night for some pasta and we were surprised to find this La Quinta restaurant busier than usual with hungry and thirsty people. The outside patio area seemed to be the preferred location as our desert temperatures where just about perfect.
Crowded restaurants are not the norm in early October, but I quickly realized that this was a long weekend for Canadians enjoying a their Thanksgiving, which for Canada falls on the second Monday of October.
Canadian Homebuyers Very Active In The Palm Springs Market
Canadian homebuyers continue to be very active in our Palm Springs area real estate market in all price segments. Most of our Canadian buyer clients seem to prefer gated resort lifestyle communities offering amenities such as golf, fitness and tennis. And with the Canadian Dollar still strong against the U.S. Dollar, Canadian buyers can still take advantage of some of the best Palm Springs area real estate values in a long time.
Investing In A Second Home Is Fairly Simple For Canadians
Sheri Dettman & Associates has personally helped hundreds of Canadian buyers in finding excellent real estate opportunities, be it a home or luxury condo. Canadian buyers generally don’t need a U.S. Social Security number, just a valid passport. There are a few forms that our La Quinta based real estate team will help you complete, but the process overall is straightforward and fairly simple. An attorney is usually not needed in California, since our escrow and title teams are trained to process all the paperwork for buyer or even selling a home. Keep in mind too that in the majority of Canadian buyer transactions, the home seller pays our Realtor service fee. This applies to both resale and new construction homes.
Choosing An Experienced Buyers Agent To Guide You
The smartest thing a Canadian homebuyer can do before they start looking at Palm Springs area homes or luxury condos for sale is to choose a Palm Springs area real estate agent that has a proven track record of helping Canadian buyers. I like to think of a buyer’s agent as part guide and part negotiator. Additional information: How To Choose A Palm Springs Real Estate Agent.
