The City of Palm Desert

As more and more families move into our area, the year-round economy is booming. The average age is 48 years - a significant change from just a decade ago when the city was considered primarily a retirement area.
Indian Wells

This secluded enclave, embraced in the majesty of the Santa Rosa Mountains, offers world-class resort accommodations in a lush natural setting. Discover shimmering pools, luxurious spas, championship tennis, and two award-winning golf courses - all just steps apart.
Rancho Mirage
In the center of Southern California's rapidly growing Coachella Valley, 11 miles from Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage has easy access to the entire Southern California market of over 20 million people via major freeways, rail corridors and the Palm Springs International Airport, which offers service to all major metropolitan hub areas.

The community of Rancho Mirage is a national leader in luxury residential developments and is home to three world-class, award-winning destination resorts. The city is noted for its fine restaurants, professional services, financial institutions, and home furnishing centers. In addition, Rancho Mirage offers five-star health care at renowned medical facilities such as Eisenhower Medical Center and the Betty Ford Center.

Clean air, blue skies, crystal clear nights, 350 days of sunshine each year, resort living and superb dining all contribute to the superior quality of life in Rancho Mirage.
La Quinta
The City of La Quinta is a community nestled at the base of the majestic Santa Rosa Mountains, just 30 minutes from Palm Springs, in southern California's Coachella Valley. With its small-town friendliness, La Quinta is a peaceful and relaxing community. However, it is also a year-round, multi-recreational and destination resort community. Known as the "Gem of the Desert," La Quinta enjoys low humidity combined with an abundance of sunshine year-round.
Golf and tennis enthusiasts from around the world visit or locate to La Quinta for the fabulous facilities and spectacular events hosted here annually. PGA West, internationally recognized as one of the world's most magnificent resort communities, has been the site of numerous national and professional events. 
Incorporated in 1982, La Quinta had a population of just over 5,200. Today, the population has grown to approximately 30,450 and La Quinta is listed as one of California's fastest growing cities. The vast majority of its open area is attractive for development with the opportunity for planned growth. 
Housing and hotel development in La Quinta and the surrounding area are supporting the City's growth. New homes are now available in La Quinta at prices ranging from the high $90,000's to million dollar plus homes. A wide range of older, established housing, condominiums and town houses is also available for rent or purchase.

Tips for Finding the Perfect Neighborhood

1. Make a list of all of the amenities that are close by in the neighborhood you are considering as your new residence.  Keep in mind what distances and routes to each of these places are acceptable and what are not.

2. Determine what the best features of the neighborhoods are.  This is especially helpful if you are deciding between a few different neighborhoods.

Are there parks nearby?
Is it scenic and visually appealing?
Are there quiet areas, streets, culs de sac?
Are the people friendly in the neighborhood?
Is the neighborhood clean?  Yards, streets, parks?
Are there nice trees and foliage?
Do the lots have large or small yards?
Are there walkways and are they easily accessible?
Is it a safe neighborhood?
What are the market values of the homes in the area?
Are there many houses for sale?
How long ago was the community developed?
What is the average age of the people in the area?
Are there families with small children in the area?
What is the proximity to schools?
Are there community events or organizations?

3. Walk around in the neighborhood.  The best way to determine the cleanliness and friendliness of the neighborhood is to walk around in it and meet its residents.
