As parents, we’ll do anything in the best interest of our family, and that all begins with finding the best place to raise your kids. I launched Brandi Pratt Real Estate because I wanted to help families like mine find their dream home, and there was no better place to do that than in the Coachella Valley. WalletHub ranks Palm Desert, CA in the top 150 best places to raise a family in California, stacking up against some stiff competition. With affordable home prices, abundance of family activities, and the opportunity to cash in on desert rental income, there’s more than enough reasons why buying a home for your family in the Coachella Valley could be a perfect fit for you. <h2affordability< h2=””>Whether you are buying your first home for your new family or you are a seasoned pro, the cost of buying a home is always a topic of discussion for future homeowners. The Coachella Valley community is thriving, and now is the time to act if you have been considering purchasing a home in the area. Zillow lists the average home in California to be $493,800, while the median price of homes currently listed in Coachella is $ $389,000. Coming in below the state average, houses in the beautiful Coachella Valley affordable and therefore more accessible for families looking for the perfect new home.
What is particularly unique about the area is the rental frequency. Palm Springs is notoriously known as a vacation destination with popular events such as the Coachella Music Festival, Stagecoach Music Festival, the BNP Paribas Open, etc. With websites like Airbnb and Trip Advisor, it’s never been easier to rent out rooms, or your entire home, throughout the peak season. Though it’s not for everyone, some homebuyers may take up the opportunity to rent out their home for an additional monthly income.
Make Every Day a Vacation
At the center of it all, the Coachella Valley area is full of activities for children of all ages. Families looking to settle in the area will find no shortage of outdoor fun, local museums, and nearby amusement parks that make every day feel like a family vacation. A short road trip away, Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm are the perfect day trips to escape the heat and have some fun with the family. For kids ready for a little adventure, Palm Springs’ Wet ‘n’ Wild water park is full of big drops and splashes the whole family will love. For a more educational day, your family is sure to enjoy local museums such as the Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert, the Palm Springs Air Museum, and the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, all options nearby! Of course, the adults will enjoy all of the golf and casino action the valley has to offer!
