Hi, I was looking for affordable apartments in the area and saw some in my price range in Desert Hot Springs. Is that an OK area? Thanks.

Kevin - Desert Hot Springs is north of Palm Springs (north of the 1-10 freeway) - sorry though, don't have much information on the area. Have you spent any time there? I find that's usually the best way to get a feel for an area. Everyone is so different, so what you might find appealing, someone else may not and of course vice-versa.

for the reply. I have spent alot of time in PS and fell in love with it from day one. Now there is nothing holding me back from moving there. I just don't want to be in a bad area. Ant suggestions?

Either go with your gut or spend a lot of time (is possible) in the area where you think you'll want to live. Go to the stores, grocery shopping, restaurants, library, bars - and most importantly - talk to the people! If you're very, very concerned, stop by the police station and ask them for crime stats. Getting a feel for the area is your best bet. Renting is also a good way to go so you don't get locked into a home only to find out 3 months later you're not happy. If you are, then great, plant roots!

Call the police. They said that there is some crime in Desert Hot Springs, but didn't think it was really bad. I might fly out and look around.

I talked to a number of people in the PS area and am being told that jobs are very hard to find right now, so I am going to wait and see if the economy turns around before I relocate.
