Long Beach California is home to the West Coasts most affordable beach real estate. Set in sunny Southern California we enjoy moderate temperatures year round, sweet ocean breezes and a resort atmosphere. With our purchase prices so reasonable is it any wonder snowbirds are flocking here? Palm Desert, 2 hours inland, is fantastic, but nothing compares to luxury oceanfront property and the beach is just more fun!
Long Beach has an endless array of entertainment to suit any lifestyle or age from water-sports to nightlife, theater and fine dining. This is the perfect place to do everything, do nothing or to just go fly a kite!
Yes we have golf courses! Long Beach is centrally located making access to all Southern California golf courses just a short drive.
Long Beach is conveniently located just 20 minutes south of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), 20 minutes north of John Wayne Airport (SNA) in Irvine, and home to our own Long Beach Airport – which we love. We are also just a 20 minute drive into Downtown Los Angeles – in case you were thinking about catching a Lakers game; attending a concert at the fabulous Staples Center or a performance at our beautiful Music Center. Fantabulous and incomparable, 8 time Grammy award winner, Tina Turner
is performing at the Staples Center as I write this, had I known that ahead of time I would be there tonight singing along……..What’s love got to do with it? La la la… Gotta love that woman!
Did I say we were centrally located? A 2 hour drive north will find you in beautiful Santa Barbara. Head north just a little further and enjoy a day, or a romantic weekend, in wine country. A leisurely drive south will take you into lovely San Diego. Catch a Padres game or spend a day at the San Diego Zoo or perhaps SeaWorld with the family then head into the Downtown San Diego gaslight district for a delicious dinner and some relaxing down time.
Long Beach is slated to become the new home of the largest movie studio in California. A deal has been struck to take over the Boeing facility near the Long Beach airport. This will infuse new life into Long Beach and will certainly attract celebrities to our lovely waterfront homes and high rise condominiums. How could they resist? You never know who your new neighbor may be!
Did you know that Hollywood got its start in Long Beach? Long Beach was known as the motion picture capital of the world until post World War I when Hollywood developed around the glitz of the era. With its perfect Southern California climate, Long Beach afforded the perfect setting for the industry. There were eight film houses, two stock companies, roller-coasters and bath houses at the historic Pike, along the shore of Downtown Long Beach. This was the home of the Balboa Amusement Production Company, the world’s most prolific silent-film studio. W. C. Fields and other stars lived in beautiful mansions in the Bluff Park neighborhood along Ocean Boulevard and First Street, many of which remain in the families to this day.
Redevelopment in Alamitos Beach and the bustling Downtown Long Beach communities has birthed fabulous luxury high rise condominiums with endless ocean views, Manhattan style lofts and many fabulous new dining opportunities.
The luxury home market is generally a cash market. Brian Brady’s 2009 Real Estate Market outlook predicts that disappearing jobs and financing will likely drive the price of luxury properties down in our waterfront and higher end communities. While that is tragic for the owners of these Long Beach properties it is an incredible opportunity to purchase the Long Beach home, condo or vacation property you, the buyer has been waiting for.
The Long Beach real estate market has gone through several tumultuous years, this winter is certain to be a difficult time for sellers of Long Beach luxury homes, condos and income properties. FHA loan limits, currently capping at $729,750 for single family home purchases are slated to be decreased to around $625,000 on January 1, 2009. Decreasing buyer purchasing power is certain to affect prices in the mid-market range of $700,000 to about $1,000,000.
What does this mean for sellers? If you are planning on selling, you should plan on closing your escrow before the end of the year and should price it to do so. It would be our pleasure to provide a home value assessment.
What does this mean for buyers? This is an incredible opportunity to purchase your new home at an incredible price.
International buyers are flocking to the United States to purchase real estate at our current depressed prices, there is limited financing for foreign nationals, most are purchasing with all cash. Long Beach prices have become very attractive to these buyers. You can start your search for Long Beach homes here. VIP service is provided with the ability to set up custom searches with an automatic email alert system.
If you are interested in purchasing a Long Beach luxury oceanfront home or a high rise luxury waterfront condominium, this winter is the time to make that purchase. It would be our pleasure to assist you.
