Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Made a Strategic Decision Buying $6.3 Million Plot of Land in La Quinta

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West might have a reputation for being vapid, selfish celebrities, but not everything they do is completely brainless. In fact, this couple has been making a few very wise decisions lately, including their latest land purchase that could pay off handsomely.

Kim and Kanye already own multiple properties, including their main residence in Hidden Hills and a sprawling, rustic ranch in Cody, Wyoming. But it’s their new future home purchase that might be the smartest move of all.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West just spent $6.3 million on land

It seems like a huge amount of money to pay for two acres of land with no physical structure, but when you consider the location, Kim and Kanye really got a steal on their latest purchase. Realtor.com reported that the land is situated about two hours north of Los Angeles in La Quinta, California.

And it’s not just any old location, either. Their new property is part of the Madison Club, an exclusive golf and tennis resort that attracts plenty of A-listers looking to escape the craziness of Hollywood without traveling very far.

They’re creating a Kar-Jenner compound in the north

Even though Kardashians fight all the time, they’re also an undeniably tight-knit family who loves spending time together. This latest real estate acquisition helps prove that.

Fans wondering why Kim and Kanye need yet another house in California only need to check and see who the neighbors are. Apparently, Kris Jenner and Kylie Jenner both own properties in the Madison Club. Now with Kim and Kanye joining, they’re that much closer to creating a family compound.

“This seems like a very strategic move from the Kardashian-West clan, as creating a family land bank is something wealthy families have been doing for decades,” a real estate broker told realtor.com.

Though it’s nowhere near as remote as their Wyoming ranch, their new La Quinta home has a lot more land and privacy than their main Calabasas home. The less popular location means they’ll have fewer restrictions when it comes time to build their house, so this couple can really let their imaginations run wild.

“I could see them building an all-encompassing compound where they wouldn’t have to stray too far for what they need, including a huge pool and grotto, guesthouse, and a private spa or massage rooms so people can come to them,” a local real estate agent said. They could also socialize by using Madison Club amenities for residents if they wanted to.

They’ll always have a place to escape

Most celebrities holed up in La Quinta know that it’s not a place to live year-round — apparently, summer temperatures are unbearably hot. However, when Kim and Kanye want to leave the twinkling lights of Hollywood behind and take it easy, their new spa-like compound at the Madison Club will be the perfect quick escape.

It wouldn’t be the least bit surprising if other Kardashian sisters picked up properties at the Madison Club in the near future. Then it could really become a Kar-Jenner playground.
