High Desert Hipcamps; the new Rage!! Not only is the high desert one of the most mesmerizing locations on the planet, but it appears that the high desert cities are becoming ever more hip. The high desert, according to Kim Kelly, Coachella Valley Realtor, has become even more attractive to our desert visitors. Just about everyone knows about the Joshua Tree National Park, and the Black Rock Canyon Campground, but local homeowners are opening their properties for local campers.
Property owners in Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree have another optional use for their properties..hipcamps! What the heck is a hipcamp?? Hipcamp runs on a concept similar to Airbnb. It allows private land owners and public camps to post information about their land and amenities on its website and also provides an easy booking method. The average price in Joshua Tree is about $78/night, but homeowners can charge anything they want, keeping 90% of their profits.
What a great way for property owners to offset some of their carrying and maintenance costs of owning these gorgeous high desert properties. In the low desert, we have a huge market for luxury lease properties, driven mostly by the Coachella Music Festivals, but also for special events, golf trips, and special venues. This is the same thing for the high desert! Hipcamps offer people an escape to the peaceful high desert, an opportunity to commune with nature, or just relax. Not a ton of partying, but that’s just not why most visitors commute to the high desert. Peace and tranquility are more like it. Take a tour of this high desert property bordering Black Rock Canyon Campgrounds, offered for sale for just $899,000. 14 acres, a custom home, a guest Caboose, and acres of hiking, mountain vistas and PEACE!!
