Beach With Benefits: North Long Beach



Hey there! Welcome back to my series, “Beach with Benefits,” where I, Melissa Urena, take you on a journey through the best neighborhoods in Long Beach, California. Today, I’m excited to introduce you to a neighborhood that’s been called “the last frontier for first time home buyers”  – North Long Beach, or as some have begun to call it, Uptown.

North Long Beach is located in the northernmost part of our vibrant city. The bordering cities are Compton, Paramount, Bellflower, Lakewood, and Carson, and you have easy access to the 710 and 91 freeways. The central location is hard to beat.

Here’s the scoop: North Long Beach isn’t your typical tourist spot, but it’s a neighborhood that’s quickly catching the eyes of investors as well as first time home buyers – and for good reason. We have a mix of housing options here, from affordable condos to starter single family homes, duplexes,  and even larger apartment buildings. There’s a perfect fit for everyone. And let me tell you, the prices are as welcoming as the community. Here are the average sales prices within the last 12 months:

  • Condos: $515K
  • Single Family Homes: $650K
  • Duplexes: $775K

Now, let me paint a picture of our community: 42% of our neighbors are proud homeowners, and the average age here is 33. This place is buzzing with potential, and yes – investment opportunities. With the area developing rapidly, it’s an exciting time to be part of North Long Beach.

But what about the lifestyle, you ask? Well, while our schools are growing stronger every day, the central location allows you to enjoy the food and shopping scene in nearby neighborhoods of Long Beach like Bixby Knolls and Downtown. Want to dine even closer to home?  Make sure to visit Uptown Commons with its diversity of food options from Honduran to Asian fusion.

So, if you’re on the hunt for a neighborhood that offers great value, a central location, and a warm community spirit, look no further than North Long Beach. It’s perfect for first-time buyers, investors, or anyone looking to experience the true SoCal lifestyle without breaking the bank.
