My friend is thinking of making one of the biggest decisions of his life. He’s been eyeing a property in Long Beach that he wants to buy and rent out when he isn’t in town. It’s a great deal, plus with the help of a Long Beach property management company he won’t have to worry about taking care of the place when he is away, keeping the property up to code, or finding renters. I also told him that with Long Beach being such a popular vacation spot, there will be plenty of tourists and travelers looking for a vacation rental as an alternative to a hotel.
Of course, there is a big part of me that’s hoping he buys it for selfish reasons. I am an avid outdoors-man, and would love to visit Long Beach to go fishing, hiking, off roading, and surfing. Long Beach is a prime destination to do this, and with literally hundreds of biking and hiking trails, as well as parks, I would be in heaven. There truly is nothing like being on an adventurous, beautiful trail in the early morning. It’s a great feeling to wake up and get outside.
And, like I’ve been telling my friend, Long Beach truly gives you the best of all worlds: you can hike in the morning, fish in the afternoon at one of the piers (or rent a boat and go out on the water) and surf in the evening. It’s all part of the advantage of being just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Pacific Ocean. What could be better than having a property in a place like this?
It’s still not certain that he’ll buy the property, but with so many outdoor opportunities in Long Beach and throngs of people looking to ditch the confinement of hotels and head to a comfortable house, there is no reason why he shouldn’t.
