Palm Springs, CA (PRWEB) January 02, 2013
Brad Schmett, Broker Associate with Luxury Homes by Keller Williams and real estate expert, has today announced that Palm Springs CA real estate and La Quinta real estate is getting “top billing” from the 24th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival. The world-renowned film festival, which was founded in 1990 by then Palm Springs mayor Sonny Bono, will be rolling-out the red carpet in early January for Hollywood’s most powerful movers and shakers. The 2013 star-studded event, which is expected to draw-in over 135,000 attendees, has recently put a significant spotlight on the Palm Springs area – in particular real estate in Palm Springs.
Brad Schmett, an expert in both Palm Springs real estate and La Quinta CA real estate, specializes in helping buyers maximize their investment when purchasing vacation properties and second homes in golf course and gated communities. Through his many years of service in the real estate industry, Schmett has earned a reputation for providing the highest level of service to his clientele.
Schmett states, “I’m always delighted at elevated level of interest we see in our real estate as a result of the annual Palm Springs Film Festival. Visitors from all over the world come to Palm Springs for this event and while they’re here many will shop for vacation properties or second homes.”
The 2013 Palm Springs International Film Festival will be held from January 3-14 at the Palm Springs Convention Center and will include over 400 screenings of more than 200 films from approximately 60 countries. This year’s Festival will open with its annual black tie awards show on Saturday, January 5 at the Palm Springs Convention Center at 5:30pm. The celebrity-laden gala honors individuals in the film industry with nine prestigious awards for acting, directing, achievement in film scoring and lifetime achievement. This year’s event will honor accomplished actor Richard Gere by presenting him the with highly coveted Chairman’s Award. Past recipients of the Chairman’s Award include Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Dustin Hoffman and Nicole Kidman.
“Over the past few weeks, a significant portion of my out-of-area real estate inquiries have come from 2013 film festival attendees who will be here on a dual mission – to attend the festival and to purchase real estate. There’s considerable excitement about learning more about the many spectacular properties at bargain prices here in the Palm Springs area,” says Schmett. “They’ve heard about it from friends or read about it, now the want to come in for the film festival and check into the incredible real estate buying opportunity for themselves.”
Some of the lowest real estate prices in over a decade, along with historically low mortgage interest rates and a broad range in inventory of homes and condos for sale, gives buyers more options than ever before in the Palm Springs and La Quinta California real estate markets. Schmett urges, “We may never see the likes of this type of buying opportunity in our lifetimes again. Now – or during the film festival – is definitely a phenomenal time to buy Palm Springs area real estate.”
