A group of Canadians interested in Palm Springs real estate and architecture viewed several neighborhoods and Paul Kaplan Group listings on Thursday afternoon as part of a private tour. Reporters from The Vancouver Sun were also among the attendees to research for an upcoming article series about the Palm Springs lifestyle and the Canadian attraction. Shelly Fralic, Vancouver Sun columnist, is heading the team of reporters.
Canadian homeowners and Palm Springs representatives pointed out all the advantages Palm Springs has to offer the part-time Canadian resident. Most members of the group were attracted to Palm Springs for Modernism Week and the goal of the tour was to show the visitors a more in-depth look at the desert lifestyle. The tour also allowed prospective Canadian buyers to talk one-on-one with other Canadians who have purchased or invested in Palm Springs properties.
BMO Bank of Montreal conducted a recent survey, and says five one in five Canadians are interested in buying property in the United States. 23% of international buyers in the US last year, were from Canada, making Canadians the largest group of foreign buyer for the past three years.
