Hi, everyone!

I'm considering moving to Long Beach.

I'm likely getting divorced (sad face) and I'm looking for a new place to start. I'm currently in Queens. I've been visiting your beautiful community and exploring.

I have no children. I'll be 40 this year. I'm looking for a reasonable place to live that's not horrifically expensive, and close to the beach. I've always wanted to live near the water.

I've looked more at the buildings off West Broadway, near the Allegria Hotel. At this point in my life, I'd like a quiet spot, but not so quiet that I'd die of forever aloneness.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Thanks, guys. AB guy, you will be disappointed.

Where are the best places to live? Are the buildings along West Broadway decent places or live, or just party places?

Just moved to LB in January and love it. Was supposed to move in November but was delayed by the storm. Are you looking to buy or rent? The Westhomme area is the best place. Not as crowded and parking is easier. The West Boradway buildings are not party places and most are high end. The west end is the party place.

Thanks, pacman. I'll be looking to buy, after the assets are divided and debts are settled. Then I'll have enough for a down-payment. I've always had an apartment; I've seen small houses, too, that look affordable but I've never actually owned a whole house.

Although I'm my building's co-op board president, so I could probably handle it...

There are plenty of homes, townhouses and apts. for sale. Don't be afraid to low ball them from the asking price as some of these people are crazy about what they think their place is worth. And don't let the agents convince you about the values, they are full of it too. You may want to consider a townhouse, looks and feels like a house, but much less work and maintenance.

Pac,

Once again, it is much appreciated. If things fall apart back here in Queens, I'll be hopping over there. I've always wanted a little place on the water.

If you spread out your search a bit,

Hey over in Atlantic Beach in Oceanview Condo there is a duplex in an estate sale at a good price.

146 Albany, 23E, It is a raised duplex with parking included kinda like a town house at almost 1,300 square feet but it is not on ground. I think estate is asking 325 but of course they will take offers.

I also like Lido Townehouse in Lido Beach, they are actually on the beach. They have a huge pool on the ocean and it is private and gated, unlike Lido Towers that got wrecked no a single unit had any damage. I was there two weeks after storm. apts can be had from 320K to 400K.

Just figured I throw it out.
