Palm Springs, California (PRWEB) October 25, 2012

Brad Schmett, Broker Associate with Luxury Homes by Keller Williams, today announced that expectations in the Palm Springs real estate community are focused on the influx of competitors arriving for the upcoming October 27 “Make a Difference Day” at the Palm Springs Tram benefit which will boost local home sales.

The Palm Springs Tram Road challenge is a popular 6K uphill run/walk event that is held annually on the vertical road leading up to the Palm Springs Tramway. Participants will climb about 2000 vertical feet in slightly over 3.7 miles, a grueling walk in the desert to be sure. The proceeds will benefit the United Way charity which makes a difference in so many lives across the country.

Schmett describes the impact of the walk, “Visitors from out of the area are always impressed by the Coachella Valley when they compete in this event. The real estate community sees a boost in home sales, particularly by people who are focused on outdoor pursuits. Once they see the great walking and riding trails Palm Springs becomes a place they are interested in." The magic combination seems to be healthy outdoor activity, combined with charitable giving. The Tram Road challenge is one of several such events coordinated by Klein Clark Sports for United Way.

Although the walk is strenuous, the scenery is beautiful and scenic. There are plenty of vendors, along with food and beverage venues to create a festive atmosphere and allow for the comfort of the old and young alike. The views from the summit are breathtaking and there is plenty of local flora and fauna to enjoy along the way. While the late October weather is usually idyllic in the desert it is important for spectators to wear hats, comfortable shoes and bring water bottles. One of the most popular events in the desert, the Palm Springs Tram Road Challenge is attended by many in the local Palm Springs and Palm Desert real estate community who look forward to meeting their newest neighbors.
