What to Do If Beach Homes are Beyond Your Budget
The population is somewhat split between being “beach people” and “mountain people.” If your ideal vacation spot is the beach, you may be hoping that one day beach homes will be within the realm of possibility. The reality is that beach homes are expensive, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a waterfront lifestyle along the South Carolina coastline.
The first thing to think about is why you are fantasizing about beach homes in the first place. If your main passion is walking along the shoreline, playing beach volleyball, sunbathing, or people-watching from a beach chair, you don’t have to live right on the beach to experience those things. Finding a spot a few minutes away will give you those benefits without the price tag that beach homes have. Most beach communities have a multitude of beach access points and parking areas, so even if you end up further than a short walk away, you shouldn’t have any difficulty.
If, on the other hand, your desire for waterfront living is to get out on the water, you can achieve that with a location on the Intracoastal Waterway, too. You can be just minutes from reaching the open water and gain the camaraderie that a marine community provides. You might even find it easier than you would with beach homes, as many do not have docks, and you’d be faced with renting at a marina without getting a residency discount.
Here at Grande Harbour Homes, we enjoy talking to people who have realized that beach homes aren’t the ideal answer even if they do have the budget for it. Our community has amazing amenities and access to the Grande Harbour Marina.
