Best Beach Buys

You’ve probably heard the term “barefoot luxury.” Usually it’s reserved for hotels—you know, those resorts set on near-empty beaches without the imposing formality, technology and, well, shoes. Barefoot luxury is about escaping the demands of voice mails, immersing yourself in the local culture, feeling the sand between your toes. But what if you want the privacy of home? What if you want a place you can come back to again and again? What if you want to build summer memories?

Beach houses are often the answer, and it shows—40% of vacation buyers bought a home in a beach area in 2014, according to the National Association of REALTORS®’ 2015 Investment and Vacation Home Buyers Survey. You might assume these hot commodities have equally hot price tags, but there are still deals to be found along the shore. To prove our point, we’ve collected eight extraordinary beach buys currently marketed by the Coldwell Banker Previews International® program.
