Extraordinary California Desert Homes for Sale
Buyers looking for extraordinary California desert homes have some great opportunities right now. Prices are down from several years ago, but are also less, sometimes significantly, than what one finds on the coast.
And bank owned homes offer a particularly good opportunity in the million dollars and up range with some significant opportunities, especially if you like mountain views and golf.
Whether it's a home up in the Santa Rosa mountains (a favorite area of mine is the Royal Carrizo community with some homes having spectacular mountain and desert views) or in one of the many exclusive gated golf course communities, the California desert cities of La Quinta, Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells, and Palm Desert offer a wonderful lifestyle for year-round or partial year residents.

Interested in La Quinta homes for sale? Or in homes for sale in Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells or Palm Desert?
Interested in a luxury home on a golf course?
A desert home with a view?
A friend of mine has a gorgeous 4400 SF single story home for sale in La Quinta in the mid $1 millions in an exclusive gated golf course community. In the coast area this home would likely be 50% more. That's quite an opportunity for a second home, or a place to retire now or in the future.
Or how about a single story 5500+ SF home in one of the most exclusive golf course communities in the US - the Vintage Club in Indian Wells? Offered at $1.3 million, this spectacular contemporary home on ½ acre offers a lifestyle few can enjoy but many crave. And at this price, and a bank owned property, you have a rare opportunity to live that lifestyle. This home was owned a number of years ago by Lee Iaccoca and sold most recently in 2007 for over $3 million. In some areas here along the coast this home would likely be twice the price.
For buyers desiring a view home in the mountains above the desert, the Royal Carrizo neighborhood presents some amazing desert view homes that will surely impress anyone used to the coastal and waterfront pricing in San Diego, Orange County and LA. And you are just 10 miles or so from Palm Desert...and a world away... and two hours from the coast.
