COMMON QUESTIONS

How many new homes in Olivia Beach are available now? As of October 2021 we are officially sold out. It's been an amazing 16 years in the making!  

 

Are there resales?

Yes! They come up from time to time. These days they don't last long so it's smart to have a Realtor on the hunt for you. We suggest having a Realtor who is familiar with all the aspects of a VRD and the HOA and has access to both the Coastal FlexMLS & RMLS. While Suzanne @ Olivia Beach Sales knows all the houses inside & out, she is focused on the new construction only. If you need a recommendation, please email us at oliviabeachsales@gmail.com.

How many floor plans do you offer?

What is the process to build a new home?

After we establish which property best suites you, it's a $5000 refundable deposit to hold. Once you are happy with all the details, it is then that you would place a 10% non-refundable deposit and we get started with the building process. You have a solid 2+ months to  select interior finishing's. We invite you for walk throughs along the way. Once the house is completed, that's when you bring in the balance of 90% or complete your home loan. Then move in!

What is the environment like around Olivia Beach?
Olivia Beach is located across the street from the Pacific Ocean. We are very fortunate in that the beach here is very deep and sandy with long stretches to walk. At low tide you can see pools with marine life all around the exposed rocks. We also have an incredible lake just a couple miles away where you can rent a boat. Rivers and hiking trails are all around. The rolling hills of wine country are just 45 minutes away and you are only 2 hours from downtown Portland.

Renting

I'm interested in owning a vacation rental. Is this allowed and do you have a property management company available? - YES! Olivia Beach was designed to allow nightly vacation rentals. It keeps the neighborhood feeling alive year round and affords many to buy a home here that would not otherwise pencil out. While Olivia Beach was originally set up with it's own Cottage Rental Agency, the industry has become so competitive that there are now several companies that offer services. Talking with each company and getting a rental projection as well as a good feel for the service they offer is recommended. Some owners also choose to rent privately. The best source to see all available rentals is by going to VRBO.com where most everyone advertises. 

 

Tours

Can I tour the property to see what is available?
We are no longer offering tours however any Realtor that is familiar (there are a few) can show you around.
