New housing in La Quinta, CA

Silver Rock Golf Course, now called Talus, is in La Quinta on Ave. 52.

New housing in La Quinta, CA.  La Quinta is growing!  Most of our other Coachella Valley cities are built out, or nearly, but La Quinta in our more Easterly part of the valley is primed to boom.  I sold new homes the first 4 years of my real estate career, in 2001-2005.  New homes are a very different animal than resales, so as a realtor, and a homeowner in La Quinta, I like to know what’s coming to our city.  If you are looking to buy or sell land, equestrian or residential, give Kim Kelly a call at 760-285-3578.

There are several opportunities to purchase from standing inventory in La Quinta right now.  Diamonte on Avenue 52, just east of the traffic circle, Carmela on Monroe St. just South of Avenue 52, and further South are several new home communities on Avenue 58.  Piazza Serena, and 2 new communities by The Quarry.  Now, there is a proposal for 80 new homes on the corner of Monroe and Ae. 58.

Avenue 58 appears to be the newest area for new home communities.  Trilogy Golf Club is even further East, The Quarry and Andalusia CC are just South of Ave. 58 off of Madison St.  The East Valley is growing like mad.  There are still great values on land parcels, but the closer you are to the Coachella Festival grounds, the more expensive/acre.  Take a tour of this gorgeous 108 acre parcel for sale at $26,000/acre. 




Montage Hotel at SilverRock..what’s up?

Montage Hotel at SilverRock to break ground spring of 2021..hope so!

Montage Hotel at SilverRock, what’s up? Living in La Quinta, I am often asked and I wonder myself..what’s going on with the Montage Hotel development at the SilverRock Golf Course?  We keep getting updates that it is going to break ground in the spring of this year.  I can say that there is definitely construction going on in Jefferson St.  They had that dug up for several months while they were installing underground improvements for the project.    The Actual SilverRock Development does have a projected opening of late 2022.

The 134 room hotel is the cornerstone of the $400 million SilverRock Golf Resort development.  Plans also include a 200 room Pendry luxury hotel, also under the Montage brand, a spa, shared convention and event center, residential condos and a second golf course.  COVID has really hit the hospitality industry as we all know, but it looks like 2021 could be the ground breaker!

The montage Hotel is expected to take about 21 months to complete.  Design plans have been submitted and approved for the planned Montage and Pendry residential condominiums and sale are better than expected the developer says.  Check out this property for sale on the edge of La Quinta..9 acres at Monroe and Avenue 52 4 homes + barn, 5 hole pitch n putt, private lake, orchard..outstanding!!






La Quinta Sales stats for past year

The Real Estate Market can be like riding a bronc..up, down, back and forth.

La Quinta Sales Stats for past year.  I am including both sides of the City of La Quinta, North and South of Hwy 111.  The market is about the same for 2018 and 2019 throughout our coachella valley cities.  Sellers that are asking too high prices, and buyers that are offering too low prices are both waiting for things to change.  But it may be that “it is what it is.”  IF you want to know the value of your home, ranch or vacant land, give Kim Kelly a call at 760-285-3578.

Golf Course Community, or not??

The Coachella Valley offers golf course and non golf course choices for buyers

Golf Course Community or not??  The Coachella Valley has plenty of options for people that love to golf..something like 120 courses?  We also offer many non-golf course choices, some with clubhouses and other amenities, and some without.  There are several things to consider in your home buying “must haves”, before you commit to one or the other.  Many owners here in the Desert cities of the Coachella Valley, only actually reside in their homes during our perfect winter months.  Some people stay the entire season, some just a month or so, some only on weekends.  Are you looking for a golf get away, or just some amenities?  Built in social scene, or more a person that likes to gt out and mingle at some of the local ‘things to do” in each City, such as The City of La Quinta.
