LAND THAT YOU OWN IS REFERRED TO AS FEE LAND.
I know you are saying to yourself "so?" or dah, but what you may not know is that here, especially in Palm Springs you can buy a house or condo on land you don't own. That's right; almost every other square mail of Palm Springs is located on the Agua Calinete reservation.
So as you're looking around if you see the word FEE dont't get confused. That is sort for the legal term of FEE SIMPLE ABSOULTE, which simple means you own the land.
Many people when they first move here are more comfortable with purchasing FEE land and then after living here awhile they see that it is an everyday way of life here in the valley and are less reserved about considering it.
