SOLD! Coachella Valley farm

Coachella farm sold

SOLD! Beautiful Citrus Farm in Thermal, California.

SOLD!  Coachella Valley farm.  Another Coachella Valley Farm sold!  I represented the Buyer on the purchase of this gorgeous Citrus farm in Thermal, CA.  What fun!  My client had decided to build a family estate that would be his dream desert retreat, and also a place to have family gatherings during the Coachella Music Festival.  But first, we had to locate the perfect location.  If you are looking to buy or sell in any of the desert cities in the Coachella Valley, call local resident Realtor, Kim Kelly at 760-285-3578.

Homes in our Coachella Valley are finding their footing after the impact of the Corona Virus.  Many Sellers have decided to pull their homes off the market and wait to see how the season looks.  I’ve had multiple buyers pull back and decide to wait..never sure how things will go, so not sure that’s a good idea.  I believe it’s best to base your purchase on what you REALLY want.  If it’s not exactly what you’ve been waiting for in terms of location and Sun and views, wait.  The homes listed that DO offer those key things, sell very all price points.

Coachella Valley Farm Land on the other hand is still moving.  My guess there is that there isn’t that much of it left, and the price/acre has not accelerated through the roof as it did in 2005-2006.  Price/acre is fairly consistent based on location, nearness to amenities, and projected use by the buyer.  My client for this farm wanted to be in ONE area for his Coachella Valley Farm, so inventory is extremely limited.  The seller was in a position to sell, and so timing was perfect.  Take my little walk tour of this gorgeous 37 acre farm in Thermal.  It’s a 5 minute drive to the Coachella Music Festival grounds, so a key location in our incredible Coachella Valley!



Coachella Valley Land & Farm Recent Activity

Modern Equestrian Estate for Sale in Thermal.

Coachella Valley Land & Farm Recent Activity:  Anything going on in the desert?  Anybody still buying?  Alot and Yes!!  The Virus has definitely slowed us down as it has everybody.  Less calls, less showings, and less numbers of buyers looking, and Sellers selling.  Still..Farms, Equestrian properties, vacant land AND residential sales are continuing.

As every Equestrian and farm owner here in the Coachella Valley already knows, the HITS Thermal showgrounds was sold last year and is now called Desert Horse Park.  The changing of the guards in the Equestrian show jumping is just one sign of the continuing growth in the Eastern Coachella Valley.  Land is still fairly inexpensive compared to anywhere else in Southern California.

Three farms are in escrow over the past few months.  We are having to re-negotiate land contracts sometimes due to the virus and it’s affects on the world.  We are changing contracts from Cash to Seller Carry, and also extending sellers are being flexible, but smart buyers can also see opportunity.

  1.  10 acre Equestrian farm with a 1992 custom pool home in Thermal.  In escrow to seasonal Equestrian people.
  2.   37 acre Orchard in escrow to an L.A. family who will be building a custom family estate amongst the groves.
  3.   10 Acres of farm land in Thermal.  Thenew buyer has future development plans.

Two large vacant land parcels on Avenue 50 have recently closed.  Both had Tract maps on them and will probably be developed in the future.  Check out this beautiful 77 acre farm on the border of La Quinta and Indio. 



Vacation Rentals for Horses???

The Coachella Valley offers many equestrian options for Equestrians!

Vacation Rentals for Horses???  The Luxury Lease real estate business is HUGE here in the Coachella Valley.  The Equestrian business is HUGE here in the Coachella Valley.  Why not merge the two??  Well, some great entrepreneurs have captured the idea and are moving into the market.  Much of our equestrian business is seasonal; horse owners haul their horses into the Valley, compete, and haul them out again.  That means road trips for the horses!  Looking for horse property help, give me a call at 760-285-3578.
