Los Osos Real Estate
The Sewers are being installed. The wait is over. Property values are increasing. This is a great small town! A fun, nature oriented coastal small beach town surrounded by beauty, good neighbors, good restaurants , healthy choices .
An important aspect of purchasing a home in Los Osos today is to know and understand the impacts of the sewer project.
Once the costs involved in sewering a small coastal town and which costs are directly related to the property owners are known and understood you can search for your perfect property with comfort. Most of the properties have been on septic systems since the community first developed in the1950's, The Central Coast Regional Water Board has mandated that the town build a sewer. The town has debated the sewer project for 30 years with the most recent development centering on the 218 Vote in October 2007 where property owners voted ( by a 79% majority) to be assessed for the project at a cost of just under $25,000. per property. The County of San Luis Obispo is spearheading the project developement. The is will be approx $960. added to the property owner's property taxes. Don't let that stop you from investing and living in one of the last affordable coastal communities in California where property values are still far below those in other coastal areas of our state. One can't help but appreciate the charm of the natural surroundings, the proximity to the beautiful bay and Montana de Oro, acres and acres of state park bordering the coastline, the friendly people, many of whom have moved from more populated, cosmopolitan areas, but have chosen Los Osos as their home because it is a wonderful place to raise kids, retire or just enjoy the small town flavor.
