Real Estate boom in Joshua Tree
Posted by Paul Kaplan on Wednesday, May 4th, 2016 at 4:03pm.
Move over Palm Springs, Joshua Tree and the high desert Real Estate market is on fire lately. (Not to disrespect Palm Springs which has seen also seen a 15% increase in home prices in the last 12 months!) Park attendance to the Joshua Tree National Park is on the rise- and with that added tourism, brings spiking economic growth. The Desert Sun recently published an article that discusses the rise in popularity and economy of this high desert region. Paul Kaplan of The Paul Kaplan Group, was quoted in the article, offering his insight into the growth, as well as why they’ve expand real estate services to include not just Palm Springs, but also Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley markets.
“We’ve had an increased demand from our clients, looking to find a desert escape in the high desert, where prices are still reasonable,” say Paul Kaplan. “We recently sold a cool mid-century home on two acres, for under $400,000; you can’t find that in the Palm Springs market any more.” Joahu Tree Real Estate by Paul Kaplan

In Joshua Tree, a Desert Blooms
A longtime haven for outlaw artists and L.A. castaways, Joshua Tree has lately been colonized by people turning the region into a hipster oasis.

On a sauna-hot afternoon in Yucca Valley, a town 12 miles west of Joshua Tree National Park, Ryan Schneider, a painter from Brooklyn and a recent transplant to the area, was standing in the backyard of his rental house, showing me his work. His colorful, primitivist, abstract paintings (currently on view at Santa Monica’s Richard Heller Gallery) were affixed to the wood siding on the back of the house, which had that weathered, faded patina you find everywhere in the desert. In the early mornings and late afternoons, when the light falls just so, Schneider has been using the spot as a makeshift, open-air studio. Enticed by such easy living, he and his partner, Dana Balicki, a life coach, came to Joshua Tree in February to escape the harsh New York winter and by May had decided to move for good, soon finding a bigger place (and getting married). “I just needed to get out, go to the desert, and plug in to that energy that is so palpable here,” said Schneider, who is as warm and friendly as he is bearded and tattooed. “With the quiet and the calm out here,” he added, “the imagery that comes out of me is so much more bizarre.” As he spoke, I became aware of the loud silence, punctuated only by the sound of distant wind chimes.
