Last week’s 120 degree temperatures were about as hot as the Palm Springs housing market, which saw prices surge by more than 30 percent year-over-year in May. Once considered a resort town, Palm Springs has become a popular year-round destination for remote workers seeking sunshine and swimming pools. If you’re on the hunt for some new digs in the modernism capital of the world, check out these three new home communities priced from the high-$700,000s.
