Properties in East Long Beach, in my opinion, are well positioned to appreciate when this housing slump finally ends in the next year or two. The affordability index is at an all time high because prices are down and so are interest rates. There are many excellent condo complexes, from ones like Stoneybrook, but also many smaller ones where you may be able to get a really good buy right now. Your first step is to get approved for a mortgage, unless you are paying all cash. Give me a call and I can explain some of the different programs to you.
Best of luck on your search.
