Ocotillo Wells real estate is booming
South California was hit hard by the 2007-08 housing crisis, but the real estate markets in the region has rebounded very fast over the past couple years. The desert community of Borrego Springs has particularly benefited from people coming to the Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreation Area or the Salton Sea. As per some studies, nearly between half a million to 1.5 million people pass through the Borrego Springs every year to go to the Ocotillo Wells SVRA or the Salton Sea.
While it’s been difficult for experts to gauge the demand for Ocotillo Wells real estate in the past, the fact that lots are up for sale in the area has created some buzz.
And, the offers are amazing. You can avail financing at zero percent interest rate for 12 months. You can buy an empty lot measuring thousands of square feet where you can build a beautiful house.
What has changed over the past few years?
The biggest change the area has seen is that lots of hotels have come up in Borrego Springs, Salton Sea and Ocotillo Wells to cater to the needs of thousands of travellers and adventure seekers. What once was a seemingly endless desert is slowly building a community of permanent residents.
