Indio Real Estate Information
Indio is a relatively large community found in the southeastern portion of the state of California. Indio had a population of approximately forty nine thousand one hundred residents as of the two thousand census, and is technically considered a city of the Golden State. Indio is situated in Riverside County, and is a part of the Coachella Valley, a desert/arid region that is also known locally as the Palm Springs area. Indio takes its name from the Spanish term for “Indian”, a reference to the indigenous persons who inhabited the region well before the arrival of European explorers or settlers. Indio real estate is especially popular during the winter months, when many residents of northern states flee their increasingly cold homes in order to enjoy the balmy warm weather that blesses Indio throughout the entire year.
The area which is now considered Indio was originally explored by non-Native Americans during the dominant era of the Spanish conquistadors, although these adventurers did not start any substantially large centers of population. The Cahuilla Native Americans were the first inhabitants and explorers of what is now real estate in Indio, founding and maintaining a village by the name of Tekwit several hundred years ago. A.G. Tingman was the individual responsible for planning and laying out modern-day Indio, and also served as the town's first postmaster and storekeeper. Indio does operate a series of independent businesses of various sizes, but the biggest industry and attraction for the city is probably the tourism and resort business, which receives a substantial boost during the winter months of every year.
Homes in Indio are spread out over a grand total of approximately twenty six and two thirds square miles, although none of that total includes standing surface water – not surprising, considering the arid status of the entire Palm Springs area. The considerably increased popularity of Indio has led to a current population estimate of over eighty thousand residents. Points of interest in Indio include the Coachella Valley Preserve, the National Date Festival, and the Indio International Tamale Festival as well as the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
