Thank you for selling Desert Mountain! We’re here to arm you with current information about our Club to keep your clients excited about their move and informed on all things Desert Mountain. During a recent audit of Desert Mountain properties posted for sale on MLS, we noticed that many listings either do not include any information in the detail section about Desert Mountain Club Membership or they have incorrect information about membership. Both ways may confuse potential homebuyers. We understand the importance of you building trust and confidence with your clients. Therefore, we’d like to help by provide relevant and accurate information.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL SALES AGENTS AGENTS, for all buyers who are considering the purchase of a property within Desert Mountain, it’s imperative to apply for Membership early, as Membership approval is never a guarantee by the Club. This is similar to having a buyer provide a prequalification or proof of funds before making an offer on a home. It is strongly encouraged that the Membership application review process begin prior to beginning your home search and no later than the day your contract is accepted.(Application approval may take up to 30 days for invitation consideration)

A Helpful Tip for Listing Agents You may also wish to include in your sales contract the following language: “This purchase contract is contingent upon the Buyer receiving Membership Application Approval to Desert Mountain Club.”
DESERT MOUNTAIN BUYER AGENTS
Whether a Desert Mountain property has a Membership included or your Homebuyer would like to purchase a Membership from the Club, it is important to receive PREAPPROVAL by Desert Mountain for Club Membership, as this is never guaranteed. As previously mentioned, the benefit to your buyer is similar to the requirement of providing a pre-approval or proof of funds before making an offer on a home. This helps avoid any concerns later on in the home purchase process after the buyer, seller, and sales agents have invested significant time, energy, and financial commitments.
Please add this verbiage to your purchase contract:
“This purchase contract is contingent upon Membership Application Approval to Desert Mountain Club.” Please note that this does not bind your homebuyer to purchase nor require a set timeframe to purchase a Membership. The Club simply wishes to ensure that all property owners within our gates are able to become a Member of The Club.
Please seek legal advice from an attorney when dealing with any and all real estate contracts and verbiage…Juan Pesqueira, Realtor
