Cathedral City Real Estate Information
Cathedral City is a medium sized incorporated community found in the Coachella Valley, which is also known commonly as the Palm Springs area of southeastern California. There are approximately forty eight thousand residents of Cathedral City real estate, a substantial increase over the figure of forty two thousand seven hundred residents officially reported by the two thousand census. These figures, however, are not necessarily accurate, as they do not reflect all of the seasonal residents of Cathedral City, who are colloquially known as “snow birds” because they only live in Cathedral City during the cold winter months up north. Cathedral City is technically considered a part of Riverside County, and is one of the eight incorporated cities in the Coachella Valley.
Cathedral City is often affectionately termed “Cat City” by local residents, and the root name itself is generally considered to have been derived from Cathedral Canyon, a rock formation that was given the name by Henry Washington, who seemed to see a resemblance between the rocks and a church. Cathedral City has grown extremely rapidly in the last two decades, with the population doubling several times in the past twenty years. Cathedral City was originally a suburb of the Palm Springs area, but was not officially incorporated as a city of the Golden State until the year nineteen eighty one. Cathedral City homes for sale are frequented by a number of different demographic groups, perhaps most notably retirees and those who do not appreciate the harsh winters of the northern states.
Real estate in Cathedral City is spread out over a total area of approximately nineteen and a half square miles, including just under a third of a square mile of standing surface water, which is rare in the generally arid Coachella Valley. There are a number of famous individuals and celebrities buried in the Forest Lawn and Desert Memorial Park Cemeteries, including Frank Sinatra, George Montgomery, William Powell, Buddy Rogers, Sonny Bono, John Fillips, and Jane Wyman. Cathedral City is home to the Cathedral City Soccer Park, where the California Desert Spinys and the Desert Valley Knights participate in semi-professional soccer and football, respectively.
