Palm Springs City Councilmen Can’t Decide Who to Fleece Next
Downtown Palm Springs is an ugly mess of stalled construction that will probably blight the skyline for the next twenty years or more. Hold off on buying that second home in the desert, just rent, lease or get a long term vacation rental at the Edris house from Councilman JR Roberts.
At least $43 million in Palm Springs City revenues raised by Measure J have been dumped into corrupt development deals with builders John Wessman and Richard Meany. Steve Pougnet is poised to become the first openly gay politican to go to prison for corruption of public funds.
Palm Springs City Councilmen Jeff Kors and JR Roberts are trying to decide how increase taxes on private homeowners renting out to short term vacation tourists searching for bargains on Airbnb. It seems like permanent midnight at the oasis. Palm Springs has always been highway robbery but things have really gotten expensive out here. Gone are the days when PS was a good deal. Measure J created an extra once cent special sales tax. The sales tax within the Palm Springs City limits is 10%.
Fraudulent realtors are jacking up the prices in the desert with fake news stories about hipsters moving to the desert. Nobody cool moves to Palm Springs anymore. I feel like a sucker walking down the construction zone of Palm Canyon Boulevard.
Owning Palm Springs Real Estate is For Suckers
My father always said that owning and maintaining a piece of property in this desert is like owning a boat. Your two happiest days will be when you purchase your private little desert resort and when you sell your white elephant. Don’t buy, just rent.
Palm Springs City leaders have abandoned the citizens of their city. The Palm Springs City Council is used to beating up on the Indians for so long they have forgotten how to do business. The City of Palm Springs has a real “closed for business” attitude these days.
