There are several affordable areas in the desert, including Thousand Palms, where you can purchase a home, many in the new developments, in the low $200,000's. These new homes can be over 3000 sq ft and include many of the features currently popular with buyers: stainless steel appliances, large tile flooring and granite countertops.
Additionally, there are many homes on the market for resale so it is a good time for a buyer to be looking, comparing and purchasing. Prices are competitive and interest rates at still at an all time low.
Submitting an offer with a pre-approval will help the seller make a decision more readily because they know you have been approved for financing.
Now is a great time to be buying your dream home. Please contact me if I can assist you in realizing your dream.
