Featured Coastal Property

I haven't done a featured property in awhile so why not today? What a great break from this presidential election grind.

Today I am featuring a listing I found on the local MLS for a fabulous condo with amazing ocean views. This is listed by Mary from Long Beach Realty which is not affiliated with my company. The MLS# is 16588153.

This condo has a 180 degree view of the ocean which is less than a half mile away. You will hear the ocean and see the ocean from this 1000 SF condo. This is a third floor unit and the complex is perched up on a small hill giving an expansive view.

This unit has 1 bedroom and 1.5 baths. It can be rented out, but not as a vacation rental as stays must exceed thirty days. It is very spacious and offers a balcony.

This could be an ideal getaway second home or a wonderful place to retire. It is a short ten minute walk to the beach via an access trail.

Don't let the one bedroom throw you off, this is a big unit with 1000 SF. If we assume the bedroom suite is 200 square feet that leaves a spacious 800 squares of general living area and there are many 3 bedroom homes here in the 'Couv' that have less general living area than that.

Since this is a top level unit, it has soaring vaults and skylights to add to the cavernous feel with a light and bright appeal. This type of unit is not for everyone as one bedroom does limit the use a bit. But for someone that doesn't need to sleep more than two people, this is hard to beat and what an amazing view and fabulous location. This home is in Seaview which is just south of Longview and north of Ilwaco, WA. This home is much closer to Astoroia, OR and Longview, WA than the many homes offer further up the peninsula. Location, location, location, right?

I really like this unit. According to the listing, the seller is offering the property, fully furnished. This is great for someone considering a second home or personal vacation homes as it is ready to occupy without the additional expense of buying furnishings.

This property is listed for sale at $237,000.

As I was searching the MLS I found dozens of excellent homes, some condos, some detached, and all priced very nicely. 2 bed 2 bath homes near the beach in the low 200s is not hard to find right now on the Long Beach Peninsula. If the coast has been a dream, now is a great time to take advantage of crazy low interest rates before the Fed meets after the election and possibly starts a slow series of increases in the rates.

This is yet another example of the fantastic opportunities available along the amazing Long Beach Peninsula in Southwest Washington State..
