TEMECULA, Calif. – (Dec. 2, 2014) – While Southern California home sales have dipped to a three-year low according to CoreLogic®, the market for sweet pads big enough for the gingerbread man and his family is heating up at one southland resort. This holiday season, Pechanga Resort & Casino’s in-house bakery team is preparing, building and decorating hand-crafted gingerbread houses and offering them to prospective buyers. These homes come fully loaded and turnkey for gift giving or for those with a hankering for an abode on which to satisfy a sweet tooth.
Those looking for a brand new gingerbread home can find them in an easily accessed location at the 24-hour Caffe Cocoa inside the popular Temptations Food Walk at Pechanga, at Blends Coffee & Wine Bar just inside the Pechanga Hotel Lobby and at the Pechanga Coffee Cart by the Motorcoach Entrance. These homes feature amenities such as hand-drawn insulation (icing) and real curb appeal with colorful holiday sweet treats lining the outside. If buyers are careful transporting the homes, no insurance is required, property tax is waived and goodwill equity can be earned by giving one of the Pechanga gingerbread homes to someone else. These handmade gingerbread houses come in two different floor plans. The 12-inch by six inch house, the larger of the two models sell for $50 and the 10-inch by six inch house sells for $35. They will be on the market until Christmas or until all units have been snapped up by buyers.
