You have to look at a map to understand that you have to travel east from Newport to reach San Diego. Real estate in Newport, like the rest of the country, has an west-to-east weather pattern. The problem (and the delight) about Lincoln County Real Estate is that the mighty Pacific Ocean is our neighbor. And it is this neighbor which controls all the weather. Homes directly in the teeth of the wild winter storms need special protection from the elements. Luckily the contractors and building suppliers are very familiar with the peculiar home maintenance needs of the local population.
Just a few miles inland the weather takes a dramatic turn with warmer temperatures settling over the towns of Toledo and Siletz. Summer temperatures inland are ofter in the 80’s and 90’s when the real estate along the coast may be struggling to reach 70 degrees.
Homes facing the south and west, along the coast, are the best candidates for solar heating and cooling. But the dramatic views of any coastal property are what most home buyers seek. So remember to look at the inland communities if weather is a primary concern. But really, the Pacific Ocean with it’s magnificent sunsets and panoramic vistas is the true main attraction.
