“Ninety percent of all millionaires become so through owning real estate. More money has been made in real estate than in all industrial investments combined. The wise young man or wage earner of today invests his money in real estate.” – Andrew Carnegie, billionaire industrialist
The lot is about an hour and 20 minutes away from the Mojave National Preserve, the third largest national park in the contiguous US. According to the US National Park Service, “singing sand dunes, cinder cone volcanoes, Joshua tree forest, and carpets of wildflowers are all found at this 1.6-million-acre park. A visit to its (the Mojave National Preserve’s) canyons, mountains, and mesas will reveal long-abandoned mines, homesteads, and rock-walled military outposts. Located between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Mojave provides serenity and solitude from major metropolitan areas.“
The lot is zoned for Resource Conservation, which, according to our research, allows for crop cultivation, single-family homes, and temporary structures with a Temporary Use Permit. Please note that there has been a history of groundwater contamination in the area.
