One of the small condo buildings located in the Downtown Long Beach area that often goes overlooked is the Golden Gate Square condo building located at 730 W 4th Street.  Here you will find one and two bedrooms that come on the market for sale here and tend to be some of the lowest priced condos in the downtown area.  The location is a several block radius to the water front area and next to Cesar Chavez Park and a much large one called Golden Park.  There is also the Cesar Chavez elementary school located within a short distance to these condos which makes it ideal for those with younger children.  Over the past couple of years real estate prices have gone up like everywhere else but not a super crazy high rate.  There are current 2 condos on the market

One of the more popular condos buildings located just a few block radius to the beach in the greater Downtown area of Long Beach is the Ocean Park Imperial condo complex.  The location sits off 1st street near the Bixby Park area with one and two bedroom floors that can found here.  Real Estate prices in the high $600,000 range to low $700,000 range for two bedroom condos with an approximate 1,284 square feet of living space.

What I love about this 3 story building is the rooms tend to be good size with an open living and dining room space that can come with recessed lighting and crown molding.  Many of these units also come with good size kitchens that offer a variety of storage options and large enough for a center island breakfast bar.  Some of the

The one thing I love about the Long Beach area is it's unique mid-century modern homes that were designed by a variety of famous architects.  These include Cliff May designed homes as well as a newly listed home designed by Paul Tay.  The four bedroom home built in 1958 is located in the Alamitos Heights area of Long Beach, California and is very impressive.   The house has a lot to offer and comes with it's own guest house, a 4 car garage and updated kitchen area.  Select interior rooms have wonderful high vaulted wood beam ceilings with floor to ceiling glass to take in the views.   A wonderful and cozy living room with a fireplace accented by high ceilings as well.  There is an extensive use of wood use throughout the house that can often be seen on

The Cooper Arms building is arguably one of the most affordable places to find a rental property in the Downtown area of Long Beach.  it's not uncommon to find a studio apartment for around $1,400 a month which is an incredible pride point when compared to other buildings in the Downtown area.  Cooper Arms is an older building that was built in 1923 so don't expect everything to be perfect and new.  The building has a lot of charm and personality to it and buildings typically from this era tend to be on the small side.  For example, there is currently a studio rental that is on the market for lease that features 369 square feet of living space.   The floor plan is actually well thought out with a living room area that can also double as a bedroom that

One of the rarest places to find a home in the Long Beach, California area is the community of Virginia Vista, On average, we are lucky to see one home come on the market for sale in this neighborhood with some years offering no homes for sale.  This is an exclusive gated community of only 16 homes that are located in a small community with select homes offering wonderful golf course views of the Virginia Country Club golf course.  It's all about location and privacy here some really amazing homes located here that can have floor to ceiling windows accented by cathedral vaulted ceilings.  There is even a community pool that is located on the golf course, something you don't see every day.

Real Estate prices have consistently been under the $1 million

One of the more charming places to buy a condo in the Long Beach area is the Barcelona condo complex.  The complex dates back to 1928 and has the look and feel of an old historic Spanish Village with one and two bedrooms condos located around a central courtyard.  This is a rather small complex with only 20 condos located here with condos located on either the ground or second level.  What I love about these condos is some of the original details that can still be found in these condos.  Select condos in this building will offer beautiful hardwood flooring, wood beamed ceilings and classic Spanish tiles.  Condos in the building often come with a secured parking space with additional storage capabilities and two laundry facilities.   The location really
