5 Affordable Beach Towns in the U.S.

12/18/2014

For many people, living on the beach seems to be a dream reserved only for the rich.  But, as the housing market continues to recover from the real estate crash of the mid-2000’s, and the overall economy continues to recover from the Great Recession, there are bargains to be had. 

While many beach towns still present average prices nearing seven figures, some towns have average home prices of under $500,000.  While that is certainly not cheap, and homes above $1 million dollars bring the average price up, these towns boast many homes for sale under $200,000. No longer is beach-living only an option for the privileged!

So, now’s a good time to go get your feet wet while there are still affordable deals out there. To get you started, below are 5 affordable beach towns.
