I’m not sure there are any other cities in the world where you can buy a home for $7,900 or $10.5 Million, and they happen to be just a few blocks from one another.
Palm Springs has always been unique and diverse, but never more so than when it comes to our real estate market. When Realtors here say we have a home for every budget, we’re not joking.
If you’ve ever driven on Highway 111, in south Palm Springs, and noticed the homes hanging from the side of the hill, you were looking at a community of condos known as Rimcrest. Directly below Rimcrest, is Horizons Mobile Home Village. That’s where the $7,900 mobile home I mentioned above is located. Directly above Rimcrest is the exclusive neighborhood of Southridge. That’s where the $10.5 million dollar home is located.
While you can practically see one home from the other, they are worlds apart. Bob Hope, Steve McQueen and other celebrities have all called Southridge home. A James Bond movie was even filmed there. Horizon’s is a nice park, but the closest you’ll come to a James Bond movie is if you watch it on TV.
But, that’s the beauty of our city. Millionaires and those on a much tighter budget often live side by side and just as often enjoy the same spectacular views.
