The Ten Most Affordable Beach Towns

For those of you who always wanted to live near the ocean, but thought you could never afford it, there are the 10 most affordable beach town in the country, some of which you have never heard of.  Of course, none of them are in California or Hawaii, but they are on the water.  They include:

Atlantic City, New Jersey

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Daytona Beach, Florida

Rockland, Maine

Swansboro, North Carolina

Chincoteague Island, Virginia

Long Beach, Washington

Matagorda, Texas

Grand Island, Louisiana

Dennis Port, Massachusetts

Some of these places are in winter climates so a very short summer season to actually go in the water if that is your goal.  However, the ocean is always beautiful to look at during sunrises and sunsets.  Naturally, homes right on the water will be more expensive than homes a block to two away with views of the water.  But before you take the leap, know what your are buying.  Homes near water require more maintenance because salt water air is rough on homes.  And, there is the damp season.  Home near water in winter will be damper and colder unless you are in a Southern climate and then far more humidity.  And of course, some of these locations are subject to hurricanes so buy a newer home that is rated for a category 5 hurricane, which means it is probably cement block construction.  In any case, if you have always wanted to live at the beach, it could be possible in some parts of the country at reasonable prices.
