  • condo-sales-thumb3-400w Market update for June 2015

    Loan rates for condominiums edged up one-quarter of a point last week following an unexpectedly strong May jobs report that caused bond yields to go up.

Long Beach is one of the few condominiums in the area with a one-bedroom layout that has the master bedroom overlooking the waterfront instead of being buried at the back of the unit with no water views. The entire building has also recently undergone a complete restoration.
