55+ Mid-Century Modern Mobile Homes For Sale

If you love Mid-century modern design, but also want to live in a 55+ desert community, you only have a few options.

One of the best communities is the 55-plus, gated neighborhood of Blue Skies Village in Rancho Mirage, CA. This mobile and manufactured home park is one of the most famous parks in the country (it was originally developed by Bing Crosby in the 1950s) and one of the most popular, because of its affordability. You own the land, HOA fees are low and home prices are retirement budget-friendly.

My buyers are currently in escrow on this iconic, 1960 home, located in this historic park. If this were a single family, Mid-century modern home in Rancho Mirage, it would be listed for three to four times the asking price of this home.

COMING SOON: Desert Hot Springs Pool Home For Sale

desert hot springs pool home for sale

Every year I have a few 55+ home buyers who ask me to sell their non-55+ home so they can then move into one of our desert area 55+ communities.

Once and a while I list those homes on this website, for buyers who are 55 or older but, for one reason or another, have decided that they would rather not live in an exclusive 55+ community.

For those buyers, I offer this new listing, that isn’t even on the market yet. It’s a pool home on the side of the hill in Desert Hot Springs. It’s in an area called the Highlands and offers beautiful views of the desert and mountains from the back yard, which faces south west.

There are no homeowner association fees in this neighborhood and you own the land, making it super affordable. This 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home will be listed in the low to mid $200,000s, when we put it on the market in a month or so.

If you would like to see this home before it goes on the market, and possibly take advantage of a great deal, please contact me today.

55+ Four Seasons Terra Lago In Indio Offers SUPERSIZED Showers

Not all 55+ buyers want to downsize. In fact, many are upsizing or supersizing their homes. One of the reasons is that our 55+ home prices are so low compared to most other areas of California. I suppose another reasons may be that you can’t take it with you, so why not enjoy your money while you’re still alive.

Check out this video, taken at the beautiful new home community of Four Seasons Terra Lago, in in Indio. I toured their model homes today and had to share this very impressive, extra large, shower. It’s one of the coolest showers I’ve ever seen. You can go in one side and come out clean on the other. Just like a car wash 🙂

Should You 55+ House Hunt In The Desert When Temps Are 110+ Degrees?

I received an email this morning (at 5am, before my morning walk) from an out-of-town buyer asking if I would be available to show him 55+ homes this weekend.

Temperatures here in the Coachella Valley desert area are supposed to reach nearly 120 degrees! They were 90-degrees this morning at sunrise when I walked and shot this video!

Even though 55+ desert house hunting in 100-plus degree temps can be life threatening, I receive inquiries like this nearly every day, every summer.

My reply is that if a life event means that you absolutely, positively have to move to the desert immediately, I will gladly help you look for the perfect active adult community and home. We’ll just bring lots of water and electrolytes and try to find as much shade as possible, but be prepared for a very hot and exhausting day.

If you don’t absolutely have to move during the summer, do yourself a favor and wait until fall or winter to start your search, here in the desert, when temps are much more mild. It’s not worth getting dehydrated, having a heat stroke or worse.
