No bank property on the oceanfront is the most desirable of all waterfront properties. No bank oceanfront is also the most scarce type of property in world, which is why it is the most expensive. Sandy Point near Bellingham, WA is the some of the most affordable oceanfront in the US.

Sandy Point is technically part of the Lummi Native American Reservation. Most people shy away from reservation land because it is often leased from the Native American tribes. Sandy Point is different because the ownership is fee simple. This means that you can own the land with the same rights as you would anywhere else in the US.

Sandy Point is a beach community located about 30 minutes west of Bellingham, WA. There is a homeowners association in Sandy Point and the community amenities include tennis courts, swimming pool, par three golf course, and community club house. Most of the homes at Sandy Point are connected to sewer, however, there are some homes near the end of the point that are still on individual septic systems.

How affordable are oceanfront homes in Sandy Point?

There are three different types of waterfront at Sandy Point. There are homes located on the west side of the point facing the ocean, homes on the inside of the point along the canal, and homes on the east side of the point on the tidelands with views of Mt Baker. The least expensive homes are along the tidelands. The shores are very shallow on the east side, but one could easily launch a small boat when the tide is up. Homes on the east side of Sandy Point can be purchased as low as $300,000.

Homes that are located along the canal are the second least expensive properties at Sandy Point. The canal is directly connected to ocean and most of the homes have docks. The canal is not very deep and impossible to navigate at low tide, but yachts as large as 50 can be moored on the docks as long as they are brought in and out during high tides. Homes on the Sandy Point canal are offered as low as $325,000.

The most popular properties on Sandy Point are the homes along the western shores of Sucia Dr. The Sucia beach consists of light gravel and sand. All of the homes along the Sucia shores have no bank and are located very close to the water. While there is an outside risk of Tsunamis in the area, the larger risk of living on the Sucia side of Sandy Point is driftwood coming ashore during winter storms. Homes on the Sucia side of Sandy Point can be purchased as low as $400,000.
