4 Prime Places to Purchase Santa Cruz Real Estate Investments

Posted by Lauren Spencer on Wednesday, July 1st, 2009 at 11:15am.

When looking for property that will be a good investment either as a rental, resale, flip, or even a home that will eventually be worth a great deal more than you originally paid, location is a paramount concern.

For the very best in Santa Cruz real estate investments, location means more than just being situated in a good neighborhood—it means a location with perks.

1. Beach Property - There is something about a home that sits on the beach that makes it an amazingly popular property. Perhaps it's the ability to wake up in the morning and have coffee looking out over soothing waves. If you're looking for one of the very best selling homes, consider beachfront properties. 

2. Gated Communities - Privacy and security are worth their weight in gold—or at least you'd think so considering what people are willing to pay for the peace of mind of knowing their neighborhood is secure.

3. Great Communities in Major Metropolitan Areas - Big cities mean big bucks and lots of need for housing. People living in large cities typically have more disposable income and are willing to pay for the convenience of living in the middle of the action.

4. Rapidly Growing Communities - If you're lucky enough to know when an area is in a growth spurt, buy investment property there.
