1 Reviews & Comments About Desert Hot Springs


06/29/2018

I live 2 miles from Desert Hot Springs in the Unincorporated area. Where I live there is no crime or burglaries. I can leave things outside and they are never touched. Desert Hot Springs doesn't have very many noticeable homeless people because the majority of Homeless live in Palm Springs. I go to the stores in Desert Hot Springs and I seldom ever see a homeless person. The crime in Palm Springs is much worse then Desert Hot Springs as a fact. Your opinion of Desert Hot Springs is wrong. Where are all of these abandoned homes you falsely state? If there are empty homes then they should be for sale. I buy and rent or sell homes I buy and I can tell you that there are few foreclosed homes for sale that are a bargain in Desert Hot Springs. Most residents travel to other places to do things since it takes 15 minutes to get most places. I love living in Desert Hot Springs.
