Torn Down!

Projected Look When Completed

As part of the dramatic reshaping of Downtown Palm Springs the old Fashion Plaza mall is coming down. This huge outdated structure is coming down very quickly now. While the Hyatt Hotel will remain as will the underground parking structure the rest will soon be history.

Measure J - a tax increase - as passed by the voters calls for a major reshaping of the Downtown core of Palm Springs with new streets, new hotels and retail. In addition it will add funds for parks, roads and other services for the city.
The Hard Rock Hotel is set to take over the hotel Zozo. And the Kimpton hotel group has committed to a new property as well.

Its' a whole new day in Palm Springs. If you have not been for awhile why not schedule a new trip soon! New Restaurants, hotels and shops are already open with more on the way.

Keeping Your Home Will Get Easier For Some...

Effective July 1st 2013

New options coming for homeowners who want to stay in their homes and avoid Short sales or foreclosures. The key here is your loan must be a Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac backed loan.

Fannie and Freddie will begin implementing sweeping new loan modifications guidelines. Lenders and loan servicers will be required to send a "Streamlined Modification Solicitation Offer" to borrowers who are at least 90 days delinquent and meet the initiative’s eligibility requirements.

See if Freddie Mac Owns Your loan here.
See if Fannie Mae owns your loan here.

It differs from previous efforts: Borrowers will not be required to document their hardship or financial situation, but will be able to accept a “Streamlined Modification Offer” by simply making the trial period payments and agreeing to the terms of the mod.

There are some requirements, one is that you must be 3 months delinquent! I don't really like that but it is the way this program is set up


It is 2018 now and these rules have changed. There are many things that will be different. If you live in California please go to this website for more information about keeping your home out of Foreclosure.
