Hesperia California Real Estate
Welcome. Until a few years ago, the small high desert cities and towns of Hesperia, Victorville and Apple Valley were largely undiscovered by the rest of California. These pristine desert communities held onto the seclusion and privacy that desert living offered. Hesperia was a town until 1988. In 1988, the people of Hesperia voted to incorporate and Hesperia became the City of Hesperia, "City of Progress". Initial incorporation of the city didn't change much in Hesperia. In the late 1980's to early 1990's there was a boom in residential construction and new homes started showing up on previously vacant land. The mid to late 1990's marked a drought in construction in Hesperia. In the mid to late 1990's, a new small 3 bedroom, 2 bath home could be purchased for $69,995 on 1/2 acre lot throughout Hesperia. Most builders offered $1000 move-in on these homes, still, they some sat vacant for months. At this same time, there were countless HUD homes available in Hesperia, some offering even cheaper purchase prices, most of these also sat vacant for months. In about 1999-2002, things began to change for residential properties in Hesperia. During this period, home costs began to climb slowly and the number of available homes decreased. In the early 2000's, there began an increase in single family home construction, mostly by local builders putting up 1 or 2 homes at a time near each other. In 2002, the last of the widespread HUD homes in Hesperia disappeared and prices started climbing quickly. This trend of increased building and climbing prices increased more rapidly over the next few years and prices continued climbing rapidly until the end of 2005. In the last few months of 2005, things began to cool and prices of homes leveled or even decreased slightly. Homes that were selling in a matter of days are now sitting for sale for a few months on average. New construction has not stopped, however. Even now, in early 2006, homes are still being built throughout Hesperia and the surrounding communities of Victorville, Apple Valley and Adelanto.
Hesperia Homes for Sale
For the buyer with the budget, now is a great time to buy in Hesperia. Cooling real estate trends have left a wide variety of homes available and less competition for the homes that are available. While homes were selling in a few days in mid 2005, now in early 2006, there is much less demand for homes in the Hesperia area. Prices are also reduced slightly over a few months ago and many are anxious to sell without a larger buyer base.
Some facts about Hesperia
Hesperia has its own park and recreation district which includes the popular Hesperia Lakes which offers year-round fishing and night-fishing in the summer months. In September, Hesperia celebrates "Hesperia Days" offering many events, a rodeo, festivities at Hesperia Lakes, and a fireworks show at Hesperia Lakes. In 2005, Hesperia passed regulations to prohibit off road vehical use (dirt bikes, ATV's, green sticker vehicles), on private parcels smaller than 40 acres or within 500 feet of any road or residential structure. Hesperia also began enforcing offroad vehical restrictions in the "Honda Valley" area which borders southern Hesperia.
