Hi Des: We definitely have what you are looking for in the cities you mention. Let's start with the golf communities. In Rancho Mirage we have The Springs, Mission Hills, Rancho Las Palmas, Sunrise & others. Indian Wells Country Club in that city as well as the newly remodeled public course, and the community of Desert Horizons. La Quinta has several golf courses & Palm Desert has The Lakes, Palm Valley CC, Indian Ridge, Avondale, Desert Falls.
In many of these communities, there are swimming pools conveniently located throughout and some homeowners have private pools.
The HOA where I live at Indian Ridge CC is strong as well as the other communities. To find out what the financial picture is as well as planned changes to HOA developments, we can order copies of the HOA documents with the last 12 months minutes from their Board of Directors meetings for your reading pleasure.
In addition, desert golfers have the opportunity to play on a designated golf course for reduced fees in every city in the desert. For example, residents of Palm Desert can play at Desert Willow, rated as one of the top 10 public courses in the United States, for $45.00. Green fees for non-residents is $165. These 2 courses are some of the most beautiful anywhere. In La Quinta, you play on the new Silver Rock course; Mission Hills is used by Rancho Mirage residents and Indian Wells has it's course.
I can begin sending you information on homes for sale in our golf course communities, or if you would like me to set you up to access our multiple listing service to do searches on golf course communities, please send me your email address and you can take a look at the homes available and I'll send you a list of the golf courses with their membership fees and phone numbers to contact the membership office with your questions.
If you plan on being in the desert, we can take a look at some courses and homes so you can begin narrowing your search if you are planning to buy a home in the desert.
We also have several golf course communities for 55+ residents if that is of any interest to you.
We definitely have a buyer's market at this time and there are many homes to choose from.
I look forward to hearing from you.
