Palm Springs Investment Property
As a popular vacation destination, Palm Springs is an excellent place to buy a residential income property or investment property to make a little extra cash.

Benefits of Owning Palm Springs Residential Income Properties
In the Palm Springs real estate market—as well as in nearby communities such as Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and Cathedral City—there are tons of opportunities to earn a significant amount of money with a strong vacation rental market and a steady price appreciation of real estate.
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 investment 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 of.
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.

Palm Springs Rental Property - Rules and Regulations
While there are plenty of benefits to 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 registration fees for owners on vacation rental properties, you should certainly talk to your local real estate agent, which is where I come in.
