One of the unique features of the studio floor plan at the Marina Pacifica Long Beach complex is having an optional den counted in the square footage of the condo. These are very popular due to having the versatility of being used as an office or a living quarter without being considered a full bedroom. These listings don't come on the market very often but tend to be a very popular feature when they do come up for sale. There are two ways to identify these types of properties at Marina Pacifica. First, many of the detailed descriptions of the condo will mention the bonus den area in the real estate listing which is the easiest way to identify these properties. Second, look at the square footage of the condos. The smaller studio listings without a den to be smaller and average around 650 square feet. In contract, studio units with a den to be slightly larger and average around 787 square feet. This is probably the easiest way to identify these types of listings and we are always happy to confirm this as well.
For those not familiar with the Marina Pacifica complex the community is probably one of the most popular condo neighborhoods by the water in Long Beach. Many of the premier units will be located on the water front with great water views. The location is just minutes to some really great restaurants as well as local shopping at the Marina Pacifica shopping center. It's not uncommon to have inside laundry units and assigned parking spots at Marina Pacifica. Unfortunately the condos are often not pre-approved for VA of FHA financing so buyers have the options of conventional financing or being a cash buyer. Condos tend to sell very quickly here so act quickly when a good unit comes up for sale. Please call us at 562-355-8228 with any questions you may have about this quality complex.
