More often than not, downsizing is a viable course of action for older adults looking to improve their quality of life in their golden years. This is because downsizing, in a nutshell, essentially reduces expenses and responsibilities on the home front, which is a change that many retirees and empty nesters welcome wholeheartedly.

Much of the success of one’s downsizing efforts depends on finding the perfect lifelong home where you can thrive in comfort and safety for the rest of your life. Here are some of the most important features you should look for as you begin your search.

As if searching for the right house, making the offer, and closing escrow aren’t enough, now you actually have to move!

How are you going to furnish the place? If you’re buying in Pam Springs, chances are you’ve selected a contemporary, a Midcentury Modern, or a Spanish/Mediterranean style home. Will your Seattle apartment’s French settee and or your San Francisco Edwardian flat’s Louis VX dining set go with your new digs? And if your Palm Springs home is used as a second home, or maybe as a part-time vacation rental, you’ll have to find some practical, durable furniture. 

Luckily, Palm Springs is the place to be for vintage, contemporary and consigned furnishings. Savvy shoppers from all over Southern California make the trip out to the desert…

If you’re looking for a home in Palm Springs, and you’re not from the southwest, the landscaping around here may be unfamiliar, even confusing. On the one hand, you’ll see lush, Mediterranean gardens, with green lawns, tropical-looking palms, bougainvillea, olive and citrus trees. On the other, lots of rock and gravel, some spikey-looking things, and a few trees that don’t appear to have much going on in the leaf or shade department. And if you’re into gardening, trying to figure out what to do with your new yard can be intimidating.

Golf courses in a desert?

People forget: this is a desert. All Southern California is dry. And we just came out of a years-long drought, with water rationing, rate hikes, and a mandated push toward drought resistant…
