It’s good to have options at this Midtown duplex. That’s exactly what you get. For starters, the prime location means you’re essentially across the street from The Buttery, Whole Foods, the roller rink, Rio Theater, and all of the other goodies in Midtown. Plus, the beach is a sub-10-minute drive away.
Okay, back to the options: keep both units for yourself and your family. Rent one of the units and pay down your mortgage. Rent both and treat the whole home as an investment property.

Imagine living cliffside, with the ocean as your backyard, unencumbered views of the surf, & a playlist of crashing waves on repeat – or, don’t imagine, because, at this Opal Cliffs condo, that could be your new reality.
The bedroom also has a stellar ocean view, & is a serene perch for watching the waves. It’s the backyard, though, that’s the ultimate retreat: being on the ground floor gives a huge swath of oceanfront property to enjoy year-round.
You can walk to Capitola Village in 5 minutes, or retreat to the private community deck, which features a glass railing, tables, a BBQ, & expansive Bay views.

“The Strock Real Estate company did a phenomenal job selling our Aptos home for us. We engaged them early in the process and they were very helpful throughout the entire sales process from start to finish providing us with excellent guidance. We feel confident that we made the right choice for the following reasons.
First, we wanted a local real estate company that was familiar with the Aptos area. The Strock team has a very solid understanding of the market and is a key foundational member of the community.
Second, they were really good listeners, and spent the time to get to know us, the reasons why we were selling the home, the history, with every construction detail that we put into the house.
Third, they’ve sold a tremendous number of homes and gave us great ideas on how to ensure we positioned our homes appropriately in the local market.
Fourth, the marketing plan they created not only had wonderful pictures and a video of the property, but they also gave us recommendations on staging the property prior to putting it on the market to ensure it was positioned appropriately.
In addition, they were extremely responsive to our needs. We always knew that we had a partner working with us and were always there to help us when needed. In addition, they were great negotiators. They set our expectations appropriately to what the value of the home would likely be and was ultimately determined by the market.
We’ve dealt with numerous real estate companies over the years and have been extremely satisfied, but this team took it to a whole new level and exceeded our expectations from start to finish. It was simply a true pleasure to work with this entire team of proven real estate professionals.”
