August 2021 Long Beach Fourplex of the Month

In the quintessential Southern California seaside community of Belmont Shore, you will find the well-kept and upgraded Prospect Apartments. Built in 1946, this fourplex provides residents with an abundance of natural sunlight in a prime location, with plenty of upgrades. Let’s dive into the unique amenities of this Multifamily Investment property.

The Prospect Apartments are located at 127 Prospect Avenue Long Beach, CA

The Location: Belmont Shore

Belmont Shore is known for its sandy beaches, calm lagoons, picturesque canals, elegant home-lined boardwalks, and Second Street. Interestingly enough, Belmont Shore once was a separate entity but was eventually annexed in trade for receiving a pier, now called the Belmont Memorial Veteran’s Pier. Residents once tried to make it a separate city, and only relinquished their claim after Long Beach promised them a pier.

The beach and 2nd Street Shopping are the highlights to this busy, eclectic town where many houses were built in the early to mid-1900’s.Among Long Beach’s unique attractions and hidden gems are some noisy bright green parrots that have lived in towering palms along Ocean Blvd. near the sign for the Belmont Pool. These birds have quite a unique history. Roll down your car window if you happen to be sitting at the stop light and listen for the sound. If you hear noisy chatter from above, it’s the birds, just being themselves.

The Belmont Shore Car Show, the largest one-day car show on the west coast, takes place on Second Street each September, and does the Annual Christmas Parade in December, where brightly decorated yachts and sailboats cruise the canal on one of the most spectacular parades of the season.

Belmont Shore has a high walk score of 88 and is the 5th most walk-able neighborhood in Long Beach.
