La Quinta is part of the Coachella Valley, which includes Palm Springs, Palm Desert, and Indian Wells. The municipality has 25 golf courses, 16 parks and kilometers of cycling and walking paths, according to its website. While it has traditionally attracted older golfers and retirees, the area has attracted younger and even richer buyers, Ms. Neuman said. “It’s not just about golf anymore. It’s a huge change from 20 or 30 years ago. They are now young people with their own children looking for their own adventures.
Along with plenty of outdoor recreation, the valley offers fine dining, performing arts, culture, and easy access to shopping and professional services, Ms. Neuman said.
The real estate market reflected the new cachet of the Valley. “I’ve been doing this full-time for 30 years, and I’ve never seen this dynamic,” Ms. Neuman said. “Fear was the driving force at the start of the pandemic, and it brought everyone here with their children. Now they have realized that they can work from anywhere, and they are making it their primary residence.
