What is your building schedule? How quickly would my home be finished?
We begin approximately one home per week, and each home takes approximately 6-9 months to complete, depending on floor plan and upgrades.
What is the cash requirement when signing a contract?
For townside homes, we require 15% non-refundable earnest money, based on the full purchase price of the home, at the time of mutual acceptance of the Purchase and Sale Agreement (PSA). An additional 5% non-refundable deposit is required upon issuance of the building permit by Grays Harbor County when we begin construction.
For oceanfront homes, we only require a 10% non-refundable deposit based on the home site purchase price.
You also have the choice of acquiring your own construction loan through our approved broker, Mike Morneault (Home Street) or through another bank in which case we'd need to approve the loan and inspection process before mutual acceptance.
What is the pricing for Seabrook homes?
Our pricing varies depending on the neighborhood in which homes are located. To see our current offerings, please visit our homes for sale page.
What is your availability of oceanfront homes?
Our first two oceanfront neighborhoods, Northwest Glen and Pacific Glen, are almost completely sold out. There are only a handful of available homes and home sites in these neighborhoods.
Our latest and final oceanside neighborhood, Elk Creek, offers some of the best oceanfront properties along the Washington coast. Please visit the oceanfront homes for sale page or call our sales office at 360-276-0099 for more information. If email is more convenient for you, feel free to email us at email@example.com.
Can I build a custom home on one of Seabrook's home sites?
We have several home sites available for people to work with their own architect and design a custom home. Our architectural review committee has also put together a list of pre-approved architects.
Owning A Rental Property
Can I turn my home into a vacation rental? Is there a property management company available?
Yes! Many homes in Seabrook are already being used as vacation rentals. Seabrook has its own property management company, and to ensure the highest quality we are offering maintenance, landscaping, and full-time security services in addition to the reservation management and guest services. For more information, visit Seabrook Cottage Rentals.
What is the projected rental occupancy (based on other properties/area)?
We've patterned Seabrook after the best new towns and villages which have been very successful in renting homes. What Carmel is to California and Cannon Beach is to Oregon - we've seen Seabrook become to Washington.
With our design and attention to detail, Seabrook has become a beach experience second to none -- attracting both regional and out-of-state guests. Seabrook makes Washingtonians think twice about taking the longer drive to the Oregon coast. We believe that the market will grow to be stronger than the Oregon coast due to its proximity to a very large metro area and our solid business plan.
Since each home is unique in size, location, and features, it is hard to project an average rental occupancy for all of Seabrook.
However, our Cottage Rentals program has been incredibly successful ever since its inception. Every year we see steady revenue growth and an increase in the amount of homes available for rent. For more information on our Cottage Rentals program, watch the Cottage Rentals Webinar!
What type of advertising & marketing is being done for rentals and resales?
We have an extensive marketing plan - encompassing most advertising vehicles - to spread the word about your vacation rental or resale. Our web presence is strong and still growing rapidly as we work diligently to increase awareness and bring significant information to consumer's fingertips.
Like other new towns, the best advertising and marketing is the PR and the word of mouth we receive for our work. We have already received attention from national media, including Coastal Living and Sunset Magazine. We've also been featured by the Seattle Times, Seattle Met, Seattle Magazine, Evening Magazine, Builder Magazine, Tacoma News Tribune, the Olympian, Martha Stewart magazine, 425 Magazine, South Sound Magazine, Alaska Airlines Magazine, as well as other regional media.
For a full list, see our Seabrook in the news webpage.
Who is your typical guest and what do they look for in this area?
Our typical renter will be looking for an "authentic coastal experience" very much like Cannon Beach, OR. What sets us apart is our proximity to Seattle (with the Olympic National Park in our backyard) relative to destinations on the Oregon Coast.
