The Colorado River area is cheap due to the isolation and being the hottest place in North America outside of Death Valley. But hey if you can take the heat and being in the middle of nowhere, there are mostly decent 700 sq foot 1 bedrooms in Needles for $400 waiting for you!
Oh, okay. How could I possibly forget about that? Silly me!

Of course I can take the heat! I'm a natural-born desert rat, after all! I love the desert! As for isolation, I'm not so sure, though.

Ha! Well if you're looking to get out of a high-COL area as I am in SD, you can be become an expert in desert housing prices in no time. Lots of people in the IV either have family or work in Mexicali, which increases the demand for the limited housing supply down there.

As far as the Colorado River Valley, it's not quite as isolated as you would think. Needles is 20 minutes away from Bullhead City and Laughlin which is in an area of 100,000 people. You also have Lake Havasu City and Yuma (50,000 and 100,000 respectively), but that's getting into Arizona/Nevada and outside the scope of this thread.

The Coachella Valley, as a whole, is not a high-COL area. Well, except maybe the cities of La Quinta, Indian Wells, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and Palm Springs...

Also, would you say that the Victor Valley is more or less expensive than the CV? How about the Antelope Valley and the Owens Valley?

Victor Valley and Antelope Valley are about roughly the same as average rents in the CV. Cheaper than La Quinta but more expensive than Indio. Both the VV and the AV are price inflated due to proximity to job centers in LA and the I.E.

There are million dollar homes in Indio and several new home tracts with homes starting at $300,000 and above. Who would want to pay $300,000 for a starter home let alone a million dollars for a home in Indio?????
