Two Florida spots make the “America’s Most—and Least—Affordable Beach Towns, 2017 Edition,” in South Florida!

According to a recent article written by Yuqing Pan for REALTOR.com®, a couple of Florida coastal communities made the list for the most affordable.

Pan writes, “It’s the American summertime real estate fantasy.  When the mercury starts rising again from coast to coast, we start dreaming about having a home right by the beach—close enough to enjoy a morning walk by the water and to hear the waves crashing at night.  Epic sandcastles.  Cookouts on the beach.  Second-degree sunburn. What’s not to love?”

He adds, “Well, the down payment, for one.  And the mortgage, for another.  But let’s keep the dream alive!  Even if you have trouble swinging the cost of a beachfront home in the Hamptons, South Beach, or Malibu, it doesn’t mean owning a place with a soul-soothing view of clear, blue waters is off the table.”

“The United States’ 95,471 miles of shoreline offer a diverse array of sun-and-sand options, many of which might be well within financial reach.  So to help you turn your sun-baked dreams into reality, we’re revisiting our ranking of America’s top 10 budget-friendly beach towns. To narrow the selection, the REALTOR.com® data team donned water wings and took a dip into median home prices in beach towns with 1,000 to 100,000 residents and that have at least 30 properties on the market.  We limited the list to two towns per state, separated by at least 30 miles, to provide some geographic diversity,” Pan notes.

Our neighbors who made the list:

4. Deerfield Beach, FL Median home price: $157,900

8. Daytona Beach, FL Median home price: $199,900
