While Aptos, California is well known for the beauty and appeal of its beach homes, there are many other types of properties for the savvy buyer or investor looking to make the best purchasing decision on real estate opportunities.


The considerable variety in property types are attributable to the fact that the geography and community mix of Aptos includes:


  • Hilly Neighborhoods or areas with mountain ridges (often used for private, secluded homes with wide acreages)
  • Long sandy beaches
  • Sections of land with varying denseness of shrubbery and trees, mostly redwood forests
  • Modern high end condominiums
  • Tract of commercial real estate
  • Homes with pools and other similar features
  • Homes that are near or within school districts
  • Multi-family apartments and/or townhomes
  • Luxury real estate, and
  • Homes built with traditional and valuable materials such as hardwood floors


Which Aptos Property is Suited for You?


Your choice of Aptos property may be determined by your current family composition – whether you are a newly wed couple striking out on your own, retirees, young families, or business investors – and your prevailing lifestyle.


While seemingly basic, the considerations mentioned can help you decide which part of Aptos you’d be interested in, whether for private residential use, industrial or commercial use, or as a rental investment. Then, of course, you have to be clear about the kinds of amenities or facilities you want.


Obviously, if you’re hankering for privacy, easy access to places where people gather such as shops and restaurants won’t be high among your concerns. The same consideration should also apply, for example, if you have a young family and you’d want easy access to playgrounds, parks, public pools, and schools.


As the saying goes, it’s all about location, location, location. Here are some general ideas you can consider about your Aptos property purchase.


The Aptos Hills Neighborhoods


If a hillside home is what attracts you, the rural side of Aptos, the Aptos Hills can fulfill your desire.  Homes in the Aptos Hills favor seclusion or privacy, and can provide you with equestrian activities because of the wide acreage that comes as a part of the properties, which is suitable for raising and riding horses. The vast land areas can also be devoted to developing orchards and wineries, and farms for flowers, fruits, or vegetables, depending on your interest.


Aptos Coastline Communities


The ocean view and beachfront properties in Aptos, particularly those of the Seacliff and Rio del Mar communities provide beach lovers with the best opportunities for indulging in their passion.


Tennis clubs, beach resorts, and golfing are among the prime attractions of the coastline communities. They are also relatively near to the Aptos Village, where traditional and timeless architecture are the hallmark of a laid back and charming lifestyle.


There are also condos in the coastline communities, and these are near to the neighboring Santa Cruz communities. Condos may come as one bedroom units up to townhomes and apartments for multi-family use.


Luxury Homes in Aptos


Luxury homes in Aptos are homes that are privileged to be close to both the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park and the Seacliff State Beach.


The luxury homes are usually built for single family residential use. Large acreage and magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Cruz Mountains are typical features of the properties.  Elegance of design, spaciousness, and distinctive materials are hallmarks of luxury homes in Aptos.
