At a certain point in time, I had envisioned having a house by the beach. Not necessarily live or retire near the oceanfront, but to have a place to get away during the weekend or every summer vacations. Listening to the ocean waves, admiring the sunset and feeling the breeze can be a big stress reliever. Just the thought of having our own property by the beach is heavenly. It might be one of the greatest-luxurious dreams I had, but I always find this idea attractive.
Having a beach side retreat would also make a good investment. It brings huge rental potential especially those near tourist destinations especially nowadays when more and more people enjoy traveling and travel packages are rampant. Taking a vacation in the beach to relax and enjoy the water is on top of their list.
Like buying any kind of property, several things are needed to be considered such as its location, the threat of nature, and a lot more. Still, if I have billions of dollars to spare, I would take the leap and invest in one - like those beach houses in Galveston. It would be best to contact a real estate agent and talk to local realtors with solid local business experience in the real estate market.
