29 OutLaw.. I am a navy officer, been here in the navy/Hampton Roads area for over 20 years, never left. That area years ago when I was a pup was ratty, nasty and problems (great tit bars though), today, the city and many private folks have bought up all the property and they have completely renovated it, not every square inch, granted, but in the next ten years the $400 a month apartments will join the $200 to $300 Thousand per price of waterfront/waterfront area property. Some are already completed by blocks, some are not, some will take years. Many need waterside dock work BAD!
The OceanView area has changed dramatically.
Would I move there now? No, in 5 to 10 more years yes.
What is your budget for waterfront area in Hampton Roads?
There are better places for now...
