2018 is here and I thought it might be a great time to peak at some 'off-season' coastal property deals. I found this clean and charming manny on a giant 0.29 acre lot with an attached garage, in Ocean Park. It's listed by Lighthouse Realty and appears in the RMLS. This is in the middle of the peninsula so you are about a half mile to the bay and a half mile to the beach.
This home has 1440 SF 3 beds and a pair of baths. What I really like is the cozy price of $189k. The Long beach peninsula continues to deliver value with pricing that is much lower than just a few miles south in Seaside.
The coast is an interesting place weather wise. You will get some serious breezy conditions on a regular basis and sometimes those gales to blow. Middle of the peninsula has the advantage of less wind but a bit further to the beach. generally winters are relatively warm compared to inland Portland and summers are relatively cool. The mighty Pacific moderates the temperatures nicely. Don't expect too many opportunities in January to sit on this fancy deck, but summers will be fantastic in this lovely space.
It looks like this new year will continue to deliver amazing values on the Long Beach Peninsula for full time residences or vacation properties. Perhaps even a rental. Happy New Year and best wishes for prosperity.
