Benefits of Owning Palm Springs Residential Income Properties

As you can see in the listings above, many of the Palm Springs residential income properties for sale are multi-family properties such as duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes, and a variety of other townhouse or condo developments. In Palm Springs, there is a very realistic possibility to make a big profit off these properties due to the year-round demand for vacation rentals.

Also, when you decide to buy an investment property, you now have the freedom of being your own boss. You get to set the price of your new rental unit(s), you decide who your tenant will be, and you are in complete control of the property management. You're essentially running your own business, which allows you to set your own hours and know exactly when and how every aspect of the property will be taken care.

Furthermore, those who own income properties for the purpose of renting them out are entitled to a variety of tax deductions. They can write off repairs to the units, travel costs related to the property, insurance, property taxes, and even interest on mortgage payments.

If you'd like more details on the financial benefits of owning a Palm Springs income property or you're interested in getting the latest updates on the rental property rules listed below, contact me. As an experienced local REALTOR®, I'm always on top of anything that impacts the Palm Springs real estate market.

Palm Springs Rental Properties - Rules and Regulations

While the benefits of buying an income property, it's important to be aware that the Palm Springs government has put some regulations on vacation rentals. These rules and regulations are certainly subject to change, but there are currently limits on the following:

  • Total number of rental contracts granted per year
  • Number of overnight guests (generally speaking, two guests per bedroom)
  • Total vehicles allowed (also based on number of bedrooms per unit)
  • Number of short-term rentals per owner
  • Ability to rent out homes as a strictly absentee investor

For more information on these regulations and the registration fees for owners on vacation rental properties, you should certainly talk to your local real estate agent, which is where I come in. I'm an expert on these subjects and can answer any of your questions. Get in touch with me by filling out the form below.
