Cheap Beach Towns To Buy A House

A beach house does not have to cost half a million dollars if you know where to look.

Waterfront homes are typically worth twice as much as landlocked houses. That’s a lot of money in California and New York’s Long Island Sound.

However, in sections of Florida, where waterfront property is among the cheapest in the country, it may mean less than $150,000. Of course, this may not be the case in the long run.

“They don’t make waterfront property anymore,” as real estate brokers joke, is not a joke.
There’s simply less available, affordable property to go around due to limited available waterfront land and rising insurance prices.

If the cold of winter has you yearning for seaside vistas and warm weather, take a look at these ten communities in the United States where the median home sale price is around $250,000, or even less.

Note that hurricanes has caused damages in Corpus Christi and LaPorte, Texas and have affected the prices of properties.
