What’s up Coachella Valley???

Nothing like coachella Valley land as seen from horseback!

What’s up Coachella Valley???  Our Desert is heading into summer, which means the local desert Rats are burrowing in to withstand the heat.  But.. that doesn’t mean there aren’t any deals going down.  For those buyers looking for deals, sometimes the summer can be the answer.  Sometimes.  Many sellers pull their properties off the market during the summer, and others decide they are NOT carrying their property any longer and slash their prices.  If you want to know what’s going on in the real estate world of Coachella Valley, Call Local real estate expert, Kim Kelly at 760-285-3578.

Vista Santa Rosa; Eastern Coachella Valley

Vista Santa Rosa offers Land & Equestrian Properties for sale, and PEACE for free!

Vista Santa Rosa; Eastern Coachella Valley.  When people come to our beautiful Coachella Valley, most of them know the Desert cities named Palm Springs, La Quinta, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, Cat City, Indio, and some even know about Thermal and Coachella in our East Valley.  Vista Santa Rosa, an unincorporated area of approx. 20 sq. miles in size, is a special part of our Eastern Coachella Valley, and it is a rare occurrence that visitors know anything at all about the unincorporated Policy Area called Vista Santa Rosa.  

The VSR (Vista Santa Rosa), community was recognized by the County Board of Supervisors in 2001. Community boundaries extend from Avenue 50 on the North, Monroe on the West, Harrison St. on the East, and Avenue 66 on the South.  VSR is adjacent to the Cities of Thermal, Coachella, Indio and La Quinta.  It is also connected via trails to Lake Cahuilla, and Torres-Martinez Tribal Lands.  The area is an important producer of Date crops, and Rural Residential ad uses are prevalent, with an emphasis on Equestrian Lifestyles.  (Courtesy of Co. of Riverside General Plan)

Within the Vista Santa Rosa Policy Area, the minimum Lot size in the Agricultural designation is 5 acres with 2 dwelling units/Acre, and 5 horses/acre.  The Community Development Overlay area allows for conversion of farm land to other uses, with an overal density range within this overlay area of 1-3 dwelling units/acre.  It is an incredibly beautiful part of our Coachella Valley, which will remain largely Equestrian and Ag, with thoughtfully approved areas of larger density developments.  It is also attracting buyers!  Here are examples of some of the land/Equestrian Listings available today:

  • Organic Date Farm grounds:  Approx. $800,000 for 20 Acres to approx. $23 million for 1,483 Acres
  • Vista Santa Rosa Land Parcels:  Range from approx. $32,000/acre for raw land to approx. $110,000/acre for farm land nearer to La Quinta.
  • Equestrian Homes:  Hard to find!  Take the tour of 51600 Jackson St. below.  $1,649,000 this 5 acre farm has a custom home and guest quarters.  Fixers can be found for approx. $500,000 on an acre of land to a custom estate on 20 Acres, listed at $5,9 million!

Equestrian Property Specialist

Equestrian Property Specialist 760-285-3578

Equestrian Property Specialist 760-285-3578

What IS an Equestrian Property Specialist???  Being a “Specialist” in anything usually means that person knows more about that subject than most of the rest of us do.  To call myself a Short Sale Specialist, I had to get the required certifications, attend classes, but most of all…I had to List, negotiate and CLOSE dozens and dozens of Short Sales.  I did.  What does it require to call yourself an Equestrian Property Specialist?  Years of experience with Horses first and foremost.  There is simply NO way to learn about what a horse woman requires to maintain a horse properly, other than to live it.  I made my living as a professional Polo Player for 18 years, basing my horse operations out of our local Eldorado Polo Club in Indio, California.

Summer Sales are Sizzling!

PGA West TURNKEY home on the fairway for sale; $1,450,000

PGA West TURNKEY home on the fairway for sale; $1,450,000

Summer Sales are Sizzling in the Coachella Valley!  I know it’s not because the air temperatures have cooled down because we are pretty much guaranteed triple digits every day.  I suspect it’s more a leveling out of all the negative news from the first quarter of 2016..crashing oil prices, Asian Stock Market crash, Canadian dollar crash, and we cannot forget that it’s an election year.  All these things combined to help buyers put on the brakes for the first Q of 2016.  The second Q was smokin however, for our Coachella Valley summer sales, and the third Quarter summer sales are starting out the same.  Desert Home Sales jumped approx. 12% in June. I’m finding that all my listings are getting activity, or are in escrow, from the ultra affordable Condos below $100,000 – luxury Equestrian estates at 3-4 million.  With Loans lower than ever (thank you Brexit!), it’s a great time to buy the Coachella Valley, give me a call at 760-285-3578.

Desert Condominiums can be Investments!

Indian Palms CC Condos in Indio, CA.  from approx. $85,000- $107,000

Indian Palms CC Condos in Indio, CA. from approx. $85,000- $107,000

Desert Condominiums can also be Investment properties.  Kimberley Kelly, with HK Lane/Christie’s International states that although Condos aren’t the lifestyle for everyone, they sure do have their advantages!  Condominiums typically have higher HOA dues, and that often scares potential home buyers off.  Be sure to examine these dues carefully.  Often, by the time you get done paying monthly for all that the HOA covers, it’s a break even situation, but you save yourself the headaches!  Condo developments range from older condos in the heart of Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert and Indian Wells to brand new Developments.  Ultra modern developments are springing up in Palm Springs to the West and La Quinta to the East.   If you’d like to schedule a tour of investment Condominiums, give Kim Kelly a call at 760-285-3578.
