29 Palms Has A Few Marvelous Homes For Lease Or Sale

However I was somewhat dismayed to find that the data base is sorely out of kilter.
One home we saw unfortunately too late (we had already signed elsewhere) was identical to the home next to it but the property had so much more in amenities.
Both homes are listed by the companies that give estimates as being valued at the same amount but one home had a pool and jacuzzi, a block wall and vinyl fencing, a newer roof and better AC/Heating dual pack, Italian tiles in the kitchen and bathrooms, awesome quartz countertops throughout, no slam draws which is a nice upgrade, newer carpeting, as well as a fireplace and swamp coolers. These upgades are worth 10s of thousands more and were not identified in the big company estimates suggesting they do nothing to separate the true values between homes.
What was especially intriguing was that this house had a special lighting system installed that allowed one to make it feel like any time of day regardless of the true time. Great home and easily worth 70k more than its sister property lacking these upgrades. one service even identified the property as being valued at $263K (about correct) but later in its documentation had it listed like its sister property at well under $200K. If you are willing to take a little extra time and search more thoroughly you just might come up with a better home for your trouble.
Talked to the owner and he said he spent in excess of $90k upgrading and we believe it. One of the nicer homes we saw in the area but only found out about it long after we had already signed on elsewhere.
Owner rents or leases out this home because he says he will only sell it to a family who will truly cherish this diamond hidden amongst the other rather mundane homes in the area.
If you are looking for a home of distinction you should look up Coldwell Banker in 29 Palms who I believe he said he was giving the management contract to.
The property is located at 74071 Playa Vista Drive, 29 Palms, Calif 92277 and has a nice view of the MCAGCC base (Marines) looking downward as the home is perched high above the base and seems more like a vacation home than anything else. Hope you enjoy this property as much as we did when we saw it. Only wished the database of homes in the area was more up to date so we would not have missed it. Delving deeper always provides a better outcome. Don't settle when you have the time to search more thoroughly. Could see us retiring in that lovely Desert Town.
