Chilly Weather and Hot Deals

March at the beach is not typically filled with frosty mornings, yet here we are with exactly that. Maybe this chilly but sunny weather will bring out the house hunters.

I have often showed value oriented properties here, inexpensive properties for the budget minded beach goer. But the deals don't stop at the entry level price range; what if I told you there was a beautiful house on a nine acre parcel of beach front property for less than $600,000? Now will you take the red pill? OK for those of you that haven't seen the Matrix, both of you ;) That was a movie reference. It is real and only on the Long Beach Peninsula could such a great estate be priced so reasonable.

Sotheby's International Realty has this fine property listed and I figured I would feature it right here on the blog. This fantastic retreat style home has 1590 SF 3 beds and 2 baths. The chalet style fits with the wooded forest meadow the house sits on. The property leads down towards the beach. for which there is a 200 foot wide piece all the way to mean high tide.

All this, right on the beach for $595,000, no way, I must have taken the blue pill by accident, is this real? Yes it's real friends. The Long Beach Peninsula offers excellent values like these and for those that can't swing the half-million dollar stuff, I found older single wide mobiles on 0.25 acre lots for less than $50k.

I never cease to be amazed at the huge difference in value between the Northwest Oregon Coast and the Southwest Washington Coast. All just separated by a bridge across the mighty Columbia River.

Take a ride out to the coast, enjoy the sun and surf, or the strong storms crashing the beach, but while you're out there, peak around at the real estate. You never know what treasures you may find.
