Desert Living

Real Estate Agent with Realty Benefit

I have a second home in the California Desert. Life here is much different than life in Orange County. The first thing you have to get used to is the quiet, then the heat!

The town where my home is located, (Johnson Valley) has a population of 250 people! My back yard is open, unimproved land for as far as I can see.

I am next to the country's largest off road vehicle riding area, yet there is seldom anyone there.

In Jan. they have the "King of the Hammers" race, where this little town grows from 250 people to 60,000! for one week. Then is back to 250 again.

Grilling food on hot rocks. No thanks. Rather put on my winter coat and much be heat intolerant. But everyone can get what they want in a country this big, with real estate markets very different.
