We're getting asked a lot about the effect of the Coronavirus pandemic on home prices. We're in uncharted waters but wanted to share the California Association of Realtors® (C.A.R.) take on things... “C.A.R. is still forecasting a modest increase in the median home price for 2020, but the current outlook for home prices is difficult to assess in this rapidly changing environment. On one hand, lower mortgage rates will make homebuying more attractive - particularly for first-time homebuyers and for lower-priced homes generally, as those home typically rely on debt financing in much larger proportions that investment properties, second homes and luxury properties. At the same time, there have been significant negative wealth effects in the wake of market fluctuations. This will reduce demand from homebuyers who were relying on financial market wealth as a source of funds for luxury homes, second homes and investment properties. There might also be counter-vailing effects as some investors seek refuge from turbulent financial markets in real estate. The net effect of these various forces remains to be seen. Currently, C.A.R. expects negative economic growth during the second quarter of 2020 (and possibly the first), and C.A.R. has modeled scenarios where the negative effects on consumer confidence outweigh the positive effects of lower interest rates such that home prices shrink back from their current highs. Such a scenario is contingent upon the coronavirus deteriorating beyond what is currently envisioned with the infection progressing into the summer with peak cases not being reached until the third quarter.” CalDRE # 01898254 | 01896117 | 02043759 . . . #california #southerncalifornia #palmsprings #coachellavalley #realestate #marketupdate #homeprices #coronavirusimpactonhomeprices #thebriggsgroup #timbriggs #lauriebriggs #berkshirehathawayhomeservicescaliforniaproperties #bhhscaproperties

With the coronavirus outbreak, we’re being asked to avoid public spaces and practice social distancing. Here are some ways to modify your home and your lifestyle to make the best of this difficult situation: · Working From Home: If you’re transitioning to a home office for the first time, it’s important to create a designated work space so work doesn’t creep into your home life and vice versa. With children at home and both parents working from home, try alternating shifts so you each have designated work and parent time. · Homeschooling Your Children: Designating a space for learning activities can help your child transition between play and school. If possible, dedicate a desk or table where your child’s work can be left out when they break for meals and snacks. If the weather is nice, try studying outside. · Staying Fit: A regular exercise routine can help maintain your and your family’s physical and mental health and wellness. If you can safely exercise outdoors, try family walks, jogs, or bike rides. If you can’t get outside, look for an area to practice those cardio and strength training exercises that require little or no equipment. Also search for free exercise videos on YouTube. · Socializing From a Distance: Stay safely connected by picking up the phone to reach out to neighbors and loved ones. Try using group video conferencing tools to facilitate a virtual happy hour or book club. Host a Netflix Party to watch movies with friends. Plan a virtual game night and challenge your pals to a round of online Psych or Yahtzee. REMEMBER YOU ARE NOT ALONE: Although many of us are feeling stressed, scared, and isolated, rest assured that you are not alone. As for us, we’re not only here to help you buy and sell real estate. We want to be here as a resource for clients and community in good times and bad, especially those with secondary homes here. If you and your family are in need of assistance, please reach out and let us know how we can help.

Some Good News: LPGA reschedules ANA Inspiration to September ESPN reports that the LPGA Tour has announced a September date for the ANA Inspiration. The ANA Inspiration, previously scheduled for April 2-5 in Rancho Mirage, California, is traditionally the first major LPGA championship of the year and is famous for the winner’s traditional leap into Poppie’s Pond. According to the announcement, the tournament will now be played Sept. 10-13. In order to accommodate the change, the Cambia Portland Classic will move back by one week. ESPN noted that this is the first postponed golf tournament to announce a new date. It goes without saying that the new date will depend on the status of the current coronavirus pandemic. The schedule change was announced Friday along with the postponement of the LPGA tournaments scheduled for the last three weeks of April in Hawaii, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The Official World Golf Ranking and the Rolex Women's World Golf Ranking are freezing the rankings since golf is shut down from the coronavirus until May at the earliest. The next scheduled LPGA Tour event is May 14-17 at the new Pelican Women's Championship in Belleair, Florida.

Avoiding A Fixer Upper Money Pit According to the California Association of Realtors® & Money Crashers, buyers of fixer uppers should conduct due diligence to avoid falling into a fixer upper money pit. Some individual signs that might warrant a call to a local expert who can asses the problem, offer solutions or give repair estimates: · Stuck Windows & Doors: Can be a sign of moisture or that a house is settling due to age or structural shifting; both of which are problematic · Smell of Moisture: In addition to damage to a house, moisture can adversely affect a resident’s health · Sloping or Sagging Floors: Both indicate structural issues beyond aging; determine if framing, joists and/or subflooring need replacement · Historic Home Designation & Zoning Rules: Municipal rules & regulations could restrict certain improvements to the home & property These are just a few of the signs that a fixer upper may be problematic.

We had the opportunity of working with David and Nancy to sell their beautiful resort-like Palm Desert home, located in the 98 custom-home, guard-gated Montecito Homes community. This spacious, 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home overlooks the 11th fairway of the Firecliff Course at Palm Desert’s Desert Willow Golf Resort and offers stunning views of Mt. San Jacinto and the Santa Rosa Mountains. In fact, looking out from the rear yard of this estate style property, you would be tempted to ask “Where did the rest of the Coachella Valley go?” That’s because all you see is the 11th Fairway of Desert Willow Golf Resort’s Firecliff Course and Mt San Jacinto and the Santa Rosa mountains in the background…no homes or buildings in between. The home sold for 93.5% of List Price in just 67 days. We wish the Sellers, David and Nancy, and the Buyers, Scott and Angela, and their agents all the best in the next chapter in their lives.
