For instance, the two bedroom, one and a half bath single family home at 2512 East 11th Street in Long Beach provides privacy with its fenced back yard, and loads of curb appeal. Currently priced at just $397K, this residence in the up and coming Zaferia neighborhood is in pristine and move-in ready condition.
