View Homes of Clark County: Waterfront Market Report August

Waterfront Market Report August


This summer has been a great time to get outdoors. Even with soaring temperatures, we had lots of opportunity to cool off along the many bodies of water we enjoy in the Pacific Northwest. We still have plenty of warm weather ahead, so it helps if you live right on the water. Whether it's a river, bay, creek or pond, waterfront properties have a built-in natural asset many buyers want. Some want easy access to boating and active water sports. Others just want a peaceful place to enjoy the relaxed, meditative environment.

Regulations designed to protection our watersheds restrict the development of designated shoreline properties with tight footprints, setbacks, and mitigation requirements. Even creeks are regulated in certain protected watersheds, so this can cause frustration for anyone trying to build or expand a house along a natural waterway.

Regulation, market demand, and a limited inventory all add up to create a specialized market. Whether you are looking for, or want to sell, waterfront property, you should work with a broker who has experience in this specialized market and knows how to achieve that perfect outcome for you.

View properties on water tend to move quickly, so now is a great time to buy or sell waterfront property. Give us a call, we specialize in ViewHomes™ of Clark County.


ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density.

Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.






Wow, your snapshot shows a very tight market. This is a problem in my market as well.

Good morning, Debb and Bernie -- water views are nice and that photo certainly highlights the view as well as the way the home frames it.   As usual, a very good overview that reflects the knowledge you offer anyone interested in making a move in your area.

Hi Debb & Bernie, 

I have always loved the sound of the "Pacific Northwest". I conjure up thoughts of huge pine trees, wildlife, mountains, greenery and yes waterfront homes!  Your real estate business is what dreams are made of!
