John Arendsen answered:
If it is indeed a fee simple condo conversion, sub division or planned unit development (PUD) you should only have to pay an HOA fee but that sounds like a pretty high HOA to me. If, however, it's a co-op (corporation whereby the residents are all equal shareholders) then you may well be looking at a higher HOA, Maintenance, management or what ever they choose to call it.

Personally I'd run the other way from a coop. You can't get a 2nd on your home or even refi it because it's all owned by a corporation. I was involved with some coops in Florida in '04 and '05 and really tood a hit. That said, I'm not declaring that this is a coop but I am suggestion that you really do some due diligence.

Purchasing a stock co-op means that you become a stock holding member, sharing in a common interest in the corporation, with an exclusive right to occupy a particular unit.

Robert Downing answered:

The majority of the single family homes in Rancho Mirage (zip code 92270) are purchased as fee simple - meaning of course that you own the land when you purchase the home. There is a small group of single family homes in the Mission Hills Country club that sit on lease land however, beyond this specific area you will find very few lease land single family homes. However, condos in the Mission Hills area are primarily on lease land and there are quite a few lease land condos throughout Rancho Mirage.

We hope this helps you out and if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to let us know. Be sure to check out our website at as well there are a lot of useful resources including a community breakdown for the 5 main cities in the Greater Palm Springs Valley, including Rancho Mirage.

Have a great day,

They are awesome. If you own a home with equity and you are above 62, you can vampirically extract the cash value out of that home drop by drop and never have to pay it back -- unless you sell or move while you are still alive.

For more information, read my 5 part blog about the new FHA reverse mortgage program updates from September 2010. Link below- good luck.

Dear User16,
Palm Springs is a very popular week-end get away for Los Angeles County residents. I would say Palm Springs would be the best choice.
