During the past month, over 50 percent of my out-of-area real estate inquiries have come from tournament attendees who are looking to buy real estate in the Palm Springs area.
La Quinta, California (PRWEB) November 15, 2011
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 a big boost from Bill Clinton and the upcoming, new Bob Hope Classic Golf Tournament, now called the Humana Challenge. The popular, 52 year-old, PGA Tour golf tournament’s new name, coupled with several big changes in the tournament and the direct involvement of former President Clinton has recently put a huge spotlight on the Palm Springs area – in particular Palm Springs, CA real estate.
Brad Schmett, an expert in both Palm Springs real estate and La Quinta real estate, specializes in helping buyers purchase vacation properties and second homes in golf course and gated communities. Through his many years of service, Schmett has earned a reputation for providing the highest level of service to his clients.
Schmett states, “I’m amazed at the early and heightened level of interest we’re seeing in Palm Springs real estate as a result of the excitement and anticipation of the revamped Bob Hope Classic. We typically see this level of business activity much closer to tournament time, not 60 days out as we’re seeing right now.”
The 2012 Humana Challenge is a four-round, 72-hole event that takes place January 19-22 in La Quinta, CA at PGA West’s Nicklaus and Palmer Private courses and historic La Quinta Country Club. The new tournament name coincides with a new eight-year sponsorship deal with health care conglomerate Humana, a working relationship with President Bill Clinton, and a new four-day, three-course format with a smaller pro-am element. The tournament will continue to honor and celebrate the legacy of Bob Hope.
“During the past month, over 50 percent of my out-of-area real estate inquiries have come from tournament attendees who are looking to buy real estate in the Palm Springs area. There’s considerable excitement about learning more about the incredible real estate buying opportunities here in Palm Springs,” says Schmett. “They’ve heard or read about the great buys, now the want to come in for the tournament and check things out for themselves.”
“It’s classic example of combining business with pleasure,” says Schmett. “I can sense the enthusiasm tournament attendees have about the real estate buying opportunities here in Palm Springs. And, there’s tremendous excitement about the new tournament as well. Plus there’s the added bonus of getting the opportunity to soak-up some warm winter sunshine, follow their favorite celebrity on the course, and to possibly get a glimpse of President Clinton.”
Clinton will be the keynote speaker on Tuesday, January 17 at the first-ever national conference on health and well-being, which is designed to bring the idea of “participatory wellness” to life – and the overall theme of tournament week.
The lowest real estate prices in over a decade, coupled with a high inventory level of both Palm Springs homes and La Quinta homes for sale, has given buyers more options than ever before in the greater Palm Springs, CA real estate market. Schmett urges, “We may never see the likes of this type of buying opportunity in our lifetimes again. Now – or during tournament week – is definitely a phenomenal time to buy Palm Springs real estate.”
