A friend of mine took some of these pictures from a boat from the end of the pier.

Have a nice day!

We were supposed to have big waves today in Seal Beach, but as you can see they were not that big.  Maybe they will be here tomorrow or later today.  It was still a beautiful day here.

Have a nice day!

What is the Hill in Seal Beach? The Hill is located North of Pacific Coast Highway and west of Seal Beach Blvd. The standard lot is 50 x 100, some lots are larger. Built in the 1950’s in four tracts. Square footage of homes varies from 1100 and up. The Newport Inglewood fault runs throughout the Hill. Lots higher on the Hill have some views and the homes that back to Gum Grove Park seem to have more value.

I have been doing some research about the pier in Seal Beach.  The First Pier was built-in 1906 and was 6 feet wide and 1865 feet in length and was the longest pier south of San Francisco.

In 1915 no one was allowed at the end of the pier because there was a high voltage light show at the end of the pier.

In 1935 a storm broke the pier in half and they had to use Bosun’s chair by the Coast Guard to get the people off the end.  Because of the great depression the pier wasn’t repaired until 1939.

In 1983 120 ft of the Pier was destroyed by a storm and the residents of Seal Beach raised $130,000 to repair the pier.  The is when Slick the Seal took up residence after the pier was repaired.

In 1992 a short in the electrical wiring under the pier resulted in severe fire damage.  Because of potential fire danger the city council prohibited smoking on the pier.

I found this old picture of what the pier looked like in the 1920’s.  It is a lot different now.  One of my favorite things to do in Seal Beach is to take a walk on the pier and watch the sunset. old pictures of Seal Beach4 big

The car show in Seal Beach was a great success in 2013. This Chevy is the car that I sponsored a trophy for “Best modified 1955-1957” .  What a fantastic Car.  It was such a fun day.  The weather was perfect, there was music and great food.

The strandI have many of my clients asking me if it is a good time to buy or sell real estate today in Seal Beach. I always tell them if you don’t have to sell don’t, but if you do have to sell it is a great time. There are not to many properties on the market in Seal Beach right now or any where else for that matter. There are a lot of buyers out there trying to purchase to get the lower interest rates. As a mater of fact I have not seen interest rates this low ever since I started in Real Estate in 1979..

I would say sell,  especially if you have a unusual property, or you just really need to sell;   it is the best time to sell and there are multiple offers on almost everything.

If you need a “Free Market Evaluation” please give me a call.  I have sold a few homes this year with out even using the multiple listing service.  So if you want to sell confidentially let me help you.
