Indian Wells officially was incorporated into a city in 1967, and it has quickly become known for its golf culture. There are two main exclusive country clubs in Indian Wells along with several other golf clubs and courses. Tennis is also a highly popular activity in the area, and the city is home to the premier Indian Wells Tennis Garden, which has 16,100 seats. With its unique golf culture and high-end venue, it hosts the BNP Paribas, which was previously known as the Indian Wells Masters. In addition, the city also hosts one of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events and one of the WTA Premier Tournaments.
While these events and the world-class facilities that are located in the city provide ample draw for those looking for homes in Indian Wells, the fact is that many are also drawn to the culture and ambiance of the area. With two exclusive country clubs in Indian Wells coupled with ample shopping and dining opportunities, many home buyers love the unique living experience in the community. While upscale, the fact is that the city’s roots as an Indian village and its later history as a railroad town and gold mining town give it a special historical ambiance that many love.
Because the community is rather small in size compared to some of the other communities in the Coachella Valley, it can be challenging to find the right homes for your buying needs. In fact, it is common for only a couple of homes per month to be sold. There are high-end, estate-style homes located close to the country clubs, and there are also larger and smaller condos available for sale that offer more affordable living. Generally, this is considered to be a retirement community because the median age of residents is over 66 years old.
