In the legal terminology the term real estate encompasses the property and any thing affixed on the property like the buildings and other structures. But today there is a considerable boom in the real estate industry and the real estate is further divided into real property and personal property. This is mainly due to the increased demand in the commercial property segment.The real estate is used in different jurisdiction in different countries. For example in the UK the term property can suffice needs. But when it comes to US and Canada the property should be wspecifically distinguished to be personal or commercial. When you plan to buy a property, you should be clear that you are doing it for an investment or for a personal. For both the purposes you need to do a thorough research to obtain a good deal in your favor.Buying a property requires considerable patience, time and a certain amount of risk to be taken from your side. These reasons require you to take the help of an established realtor who can help you in assessing the market and various options that is available to you. However the future of real estate is promising. The increasing population and development of cities depicts that the future of it is still going strong.One of the tried and tested methods in the real estate is to first search for a property of your preference and then sends an offer or a sales contract to the seller. In your sales letter it is better not to quote any price, this option let you leave the seller to quote the price and there can be enough scope for a negotiation. In the sales letter you can include other details like the intended date of purchase, down payment you wish to pay and the method of payment, the party who will be paying the legal and closing payments. In short it should contain all the details required to proceed with the case. You can give your expected budget range and ask for the suggestions of the seller.Even from the past, real estate is found to be an option that can help youith huge tax savings. This makes it to be a practical and efficient method of saving. However many of the stringent law barriers often prevent people to heavily invest on real estate in the modern countries. In these developed countries the mortgage loans are the commonly used instrument for the purchase and development of properties. Investing in real estate will also ensure that you have an asset for the investment you had made.It is needless to say that the real estate industry is on a high. The increased mortgage loan rates and the number of applications flooding each day at various financial institutions speak volumes about the scope of this field. The good thing about real estate industry is it can be used as an investment or you can buy the land for your personal needs. However building a land and then constructing a house and then renting it is a good option to get a continuous return from your investment. And for more serious investors there are other options like resort real estate and dealing with farms and golf courses.

Two months ago I was talking to a couple who was visiting from the Midwest, as folks, well they generally come to the Coachella Valley every other year or so as snowbirds and stay for the winter. The couple was considering remaining permanently in Palm Springs all year-round, as they were tired of the floods, tornadoes, and wicked winter weather.Then, just the other day I was talking to a realtor at the local bookstore in the Starbucks coffee shop and she told me there were a number of very nice gated communities with modern architecture, with everything provided for, keeping it simple for either snowbirds, or older couples who were unable to do all the landscaping.The realtor told me that sometimes selling real estate in Palm Springs was tough due to its dual identity; it is known as a vacation getaway for gay couples, but is also known as a vacation area for families going back through the 1970s, as it was made popular in decades the prior to that by Hollywood, and the Mafia who found it a safe haven. Yes, Palm Springs has a lot of history. Perhaps you remember the old slogan; “P.S. I Love You!” That catchy phrase appeared on at least 1 million bumper stickers.Then today in the newspaper here, the Coachella Valley, in The Desert Sun insert there was a very interesting advertisement for real estate “live the Palm Springs lifestyle at The Morrison – now selling. The only problem was that the homes were about half $1 million, and the market still hasn’t returned yet, meanwhile the depiction in the newspaper had box like homes, you know the kind which might remind someone like Osama bin Laden’s million dollar compound in Pakistan, only nicer and much closer together.Indeed, it’s difficult to promote a new wave, trendy modern architecture style with the Nexus Palm Springs look and still deal with the dual personality that Palm Springs here in the year 2011. Luckily, there is decent activity going on in the Palm Springs Greater Area, and the real estate market has picked back up. That isn’t the case for the rest of Riverside County which was almost as bad as the Las Vegas area, the Phoenix area, and South Florida.It’s hard to say if Palm Springs will ever get over its current schizophrenia, or back to its old roots as a purely tourist town, catering to the resort destination foundation. If so, then that is a totally different type of clientele, which also includes retirees who want to play golf until their end of days, than the current buyers in the residential housing market. It will be interesting to find out if Palm Springs California can live its dual purpose, and still support a robust residential real estate market.
