Upscale Coastal Living

I came across this listing today in the RMLS for a property in Ocean Park. This is a fabulous 3400 plus SF home is situated on a large 15,000 foot lot with stunning views of the beach and the mighty Pacific Ocean. This is grand coastal living with spacious accommodations and beach access.

I love featuring properties at the coast. I have shown some affordable condos and mobile homes within in a couple of blocks of the beach at less than $125k. Every now and again it's nice to dream big.

This modern style cape cod has all the beach charm without giving up the metro amenities. The listing is priced at $699k and that would be a decent price for house this big in a garden variety neighborhood in Portland or Vancouver. This one is on the beach however and that makes the price amazing.

I would love to be able to enjoy the fabulous Long Beach Peninsula in this fantastic home and I am sure you would too. Today it is toasty warm in Vancouver with the mercury teasing the 90 mark. meanwhile it is a gorgeous sunny day with a nice cool 65 on the thermometer.

 So get out to the coast and soak up some summer weather at the beach. Poke around at some real estate while you are there. Who knows, maybe your dream property is waiting for you. You never know and your won't find out till you take a ride west.

Featured Coastal Home

Every once in a while I like to post a listed house that is active out on the coast. I have found this property in in Ocean Park for just $250,000. This home is 5 blocks from the beach and features more than 1700 square feet of living space.

Coastal living in Washington state is affordable and fabulous. Imagine taking a stroll along the beach with the mighty Pacific Ocean crashing against the sand.

This fantastic property was built in 1995 and is in great shape. This house would be this price in the 'Couv' in a garden variety neighborhood. This is the beach my friends, the beach! I love the Washington Coast.

Hot Inland Today, Cooler at the Coast!

Today Long Beach enjoyed a nice low 80 degree day while Portland and Vancouver we sizzlin' under an angry sun in the upper nineties. Yes, I said UPPER 90s. Days like this makes Coastal Living so nice. It is hard to beat the Beach when you are trying to beat the heat.

This weekend is of course the Fourth of July and this year could be a great year for people to get out and experience fireworks on the beach. Long Beach puts on a great show and this year should be no different. While you are out at the coast enjoying our celebration of independence, check out the local Real Estate scene. Talk to Tom and Cathy Rowe and tell them Rod sent you.

Have a safe and sane 4th and enjoy the Coastal Living; even if it is just for a weekend.
