South Huntington Beach Market Report
South Huntington Beach is a quickly evolving area where competition to buy top tier homes have pushed up prices to record levels. Of course we all know people love living in this area since it's so close to the beach, but other factors have caused the prices to rise. It's proximity to high priced areas like Downtown Huntington Beach and Newport Beach along with great dining opportunities and shopping at Pacific City, walks on the pier and excellent schools have created a very high demand which has led to rising prices. One could live in Downtown HB and suffer through tourists overloading their streets along with bringing noise and nuisance to their front doors, or, you could live 5 minutes away in South Huntington Beach and have quick access to downtown Huntington. One could also live in Newport Beach and pay a premium for basically the same type of home and neighborhood and not have quick access to the beach. Many folks are realizing the quality of life one can enjoy in South Huntington Beach while avoiding the higher prices of the other two areas.
Most of the housing units in south Huntington Beach are single family homes, but there are ample opportunities to find a place to live within your budget by buying a condo or townhome. Beach close condos and townhomes are available in multiple developments and one of the nicer senior housing developments on the west coast can be found in Huntington Landmark, a development with wide streets and beautiful landscaping along with a huge club house and pool.
At the end of the day, enjoying a "mai-tai" sunset with light breezes and palm trees rustling is something most residents in South Huntington Beach enjoy, and they wouldn't trade it for the world!
