Affordable Condos in the Diverse Long Beach Area

condos for sale in long beach
Long Beach – Affordably Diverse

Long Beach is a well-loved city with diversity being one of its best assets. It is racially diverse with a Latino population of 42%, a white population of  28%, Asian and Black populations are 13% , while American Indians and Native Islanders are each 0.9%. Long Beach has the highest population of Cambodians outside of Cambodia. The Gay and Lesbian community has a long and thriving history in the city. The Long Beach Pride Parade first held in 1984 is the second largest in the country. Luckily Long Beach also has a diverse range of housing types and costs. Housing ranges from the least expensive ‘own-your-owns’ to very costly waterfront property. The good news is there is something for everyone!

Condos Under $500,000

While you may still be able to find single-family homes under $500,000 in Long Beach and the surrounding area, your best bet for affordable housing are condos. Long Beach has many smaller multi-unit buildings in the older neighborhoods radiating from downtown, such as Alamitos Beach. There has also been a building explosion of high-rises along Ocean Blvd and in the immediate downtown area.  It would be fair to say that Long Beach is experiencing a renaissance in these long ago established neighborhoods. Homeowners appreciate the close proximity to cooler ocean air, walkability and variety of housing choices. The beauty of Long Beach is the number of diverse neighborhoods. The Traffic Circle area which radiates off the PCH/Los Coyotes traffic circle is a good place to look for less expensive condos. Another area to find affordable condos is Signal Hill located right in the middle of Long Beach.  While East Long Beach is better known for its large tracts of single-family homes there are noteworthy condo complexes to investigate.

How much condo can you afford

The very first step to any homeownership is to get pre-qualified with a lender. Actually your very first step is to find a trusted, experience Realtor you are comfortable working with 😊  As Agents we have our pulse on the current market our experience can point you in the direction of a good lender.
