More than perhaps any other area of Palm Springs, the Demuth Park neighborhood has gone through significant change in the last few years. The community is among the more established in the city with a large proportion of development occuring in the post-war boom of the late 1940s and early 1950s. The available real estate is representative of this time period, with plenty examples of this distinctive, classic architecture.
Demuth Park has been the site of much development though. Investors and savvy home owners have taken advantage of the affordable properties found here, and have either fully renovated or torn down homes across the area. Now home buyers can find a pleasing selection of newer builds amid the heritage homes, many that have been artfully renovated and updated.
The neighborhood remains among the more affordable in the city, and its proximity to the airport has made it another popular choice for investors. The homes here serve as wonderful jumping off points for explorations of Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley by vacationers and part-time residents.
Located just north of downtown, Racquet Club West provides an exceptional variety in available property, both in terms of price and home style.

The community dates back to 1979 and continues to develop. It's great location in the north part of the city also makes it popular for investors as a rental income property.
