What is the difference in price when buying oceanfront property?

Location, location, location!

Location being right on the beach at Carmel-by-the-Sea for up to $17 Million dollars, vs. across the street for possibly $6 Million.

But "across the street" from the ocean is not "oceanfront" is it? No, it's not. But for some people that is close enough. You have a street between you and the ocean; however, no one can build across the street from you. And the difference in price? Well, around $10 Million in Carmel-by-the-Sea. Oh, and if you want a great oceanview from a house a block away from the beach, the price gets down to about $2.5 million.

When you go to the northernmost county in California, Del Norte,(at the Oregon border, known for its beautiful redwood trees) the price difference is again notably different. "Oceanfront" might cost you $1.5 Million, vs. across the street from about $995,000 to as low as about $350,000.

If you want to purchase an oceanfront lot and want to build your own dream home in this part of the country,see my website, a beautiful oceanfront subdivision with several 1-plus acre properties. Oceanfront lots can be had from $599,000 and up. For one or two lots away from the ocean, you can get a 1.89 acre property for $269,000 with fabulous ocean views just a short walk to the beach..

If you are interested in purchasing an oceanfront, "almost" oceanfront or oceanview property, call me and I will find a property to suit your budget.


Tip to Buying Real Estate:

When you purchase property through the LISTING real estate agent,
are you at a negotiating disadvantage???

Here is what it says on the form California RealtorsŪ use called "Disclosure regarding Real Estate agency relationship" (Selling Firm to Buyer, as required by Civil Code, C.A.R. Form AD revised 11/9) for agents representing both Seller and Buyer:

"In representing both Seller and Buyer the agent may not, without the express permission of the respective party, disclose to the other party that the Seller will accept a price less than the listing or that the Buyer will pay a price greater than the price offered."

Here's the quandary:
How can the Selling agent advise the Buyer as to the lowest price to offer? And in presenting the offer, to advise the Seller to accept this offer knowing that this offer is low-ball and more may be possible?

Just something to think about!!!
