Real Estate & Relocation

Moving to Greater Palm Springs

Greater Palm Springs is a place of extraordinary beauty and natural wonder. Whether relocating for family, leisure, education, or wellness, quality of life factors into the decision. In the oasis, quality is a given. With more than 350 days of sunshine every year; easy access to Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County, Riverside, and San Bernardino; and excellent transportation services, it's easy to see why Greater Palm Springs remains one of the most sought-after lifestyle sanctuaries in California.

Enjoy the resort-like atmosphere and access to 110 golf courses; more than 100 hiking trails; and a host of world-class resorts, spas, attractions, and restaurants.

Affordable housing (in comparison to coastal and other areas of California) attracts young families, thereby expanding the skilled workforce. Families here average three people per household, with a median household income of more than $50,000. Population growth is expected to top 15 percent over the next several years, with approximately 175,000 households by 2015.

The oasis places a premium on education, addressing the quality and capacity of the area's workforce. Three primary/secondary school districts serve west, central, and east valley students, while College of the Desert — part of California Community Colleges — has about 15,000 students enrolled across three campuses and is expanding to accommodate increasing enrollment. California State University, San Bernardino, Palm Desert offers several bachelor's degree programs and 10 master's degree or credential programs, including degree options for healthcare majors.

Desert Regional Medical Center, Eisenhower Medical Center, and JFK Memorial Hospital anchor the first-class healthcare community that includes a selection of medical groups and ancillary wellness, rehabilitation, and fitness centers, as well as therapeutic spas.
