Classic Mid-Century Modern Architecture Is "Cool" Again In Palm Springs

We may never see the likes of this type of buying opportunity in our lifetimes again.

Brad Schmett, Broker Associate with Luxury Homes by Keller Williams and real estate expert, has today announced that real estate in Palm Springs and nearby La Quinta, CA is getting a huge boost from George Clooney, Brad Pitt and the 23rd 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. This year’s star-studded event, which is expected to draw-in over 130,000 attendees, has recently put a significant focus on the Palm Springs, CA area – and given “top billing” to Palm Springs 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 delighted at elevated level of interest we’re seeing in our real estate as a result of the 2012 Palm Springs Film Festival. We typically see a heightened level of business activity much closer to and during the film festival, not 2-3 weeks in advance as we’re seeing right now.”

The 2012 Palm Springs International Film Festival which is one of the largest film festivals in North America, will include screenings for 187 films from 73 countries. Screenings will be held at 15 theaters throughout the Palm Springs area. The 2012 event, which is being held from January 5-16 at the Palm Springs Convention Center, will honor individuals in the film industry with nine prestigious awards for acting, directing, achievement in film scoring and lifetime achievement. George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Glenn Close and Michelle Williams are on the list of this year’s film industry honorees.

“Since early December, a significant portion of my out-of-area real estate inquiries have come from people that are planning on attending next month's film festival. These same people are also looking to buy real estate in La Quinta or the Palm Springs, CA area. There’s considerable excitement about learning more about the incredible real estate buying opportunities here in the Palm Springs area,” says Schmett. “They’ve heard or read about the phenomenal buying opportunity, now the want to come in for the film festival and check things out the real estate deals for themselves.”

“It’s a perfect example of combining business with pleasure,” states Schmett. “I can sense the enthusiasm film festival attendees have about the real estate buying opportunity. And, there’s tremendous excitement about this year’s star-studded event as well. Plus there’s the added bonus of getting the opportunity to soak-up some warm winter sunshine, to possibly rub elbows their favorite celebrity, or at least get a close-up glimpse of a movie star or two.”

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 real estate market. 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 real estate.”
