It is always exciting to hear the music lineup for the annual Stagecoach Festival. However, 2013 has set the bar for years to come. Multi-award winner and Billboard’s Country Artist of the Decade, Toby Keith will lead off with Hank Williams Jr., the only son of country legend Hank “Your Cheatin’ Heart” Williams and multi-Grammy-winning artist Trace Atkins: and that is just for day one.
Now I have seen some amazing musical lineups over the years but this has to be in the top 10% of music festivals we have ever seen in the Coachella Valley. I just hope they can fit the multitudes into the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio! The Stagecoach Festival is always a sellout but this year a lot of people will be hoping to find a ticket or two on eBay and who could blame them? The headliners alone would be worth going for but they are only the icing on a very multilayered and musically talented cake.
Day two promises another blockbuster set headed by Grammy award-winning trio Lady Antebellum. Their Song of the Year, Need You Now was not only a chart topper but sent the group home with five Grammy awards in 2010. Dierks Bentley and Dwight Yoakam add to the excitement of the stellar second day musical groupings. Day three will be no less distinguished with the Zac Brown Band, Darius Rucker, Lonestar, the Charlie Daniels Band and longtime country icon, the one and only Charley Pride.
From a real estate standpoint this has already been a banner year. The lowest interest rates in over a decade, friendly financing and a rich inventory of homes and condos to please even the most discerning buyer have combined to make this a year to remember. I really don’t think we will ever see these types of buying opportunities again in our lifetimes. With thousands of music fans headed to the La Quinta area of our beautiful Valley I expect to stay as busy as I have ever been in my career. It is always a great feeling to put someone in a beautiful home they have dreamed of owning at a price they can afford.
Country music fans are great people who will make great neighbors. I look forward to helping my new clients maximize their real estate investment dollars. There has never been a better time to buy real estate.
