Why should I invest in Texas beachfront property?
Some of the most affordable investment beach towns are located in Texas' Gulf Coast, namely Port Aransas with 18 beachfront miles on Mustang Island, where the average 50-foot Gulf front lot costs less than $1 million, well below the $4 to $5 million-plus average found in coastal California and Florida.
Buying a beach house can provide you with a reliable income stream, a profitable return on investment, and access to your favorite vacation spot. Many beach house investors purchase homes that they can rent out during peak tourism times. A beach house owner in Texas might make his house available to rent from October through March when residents of colder states crave sunshine. You could possibly make enough money during your rental season to cover your expenses for the rest of the year, which is effectively living in the house for free during the off season. Just remember to include the marketing costs and property management, if you plan on renting your beach house. There's also the possibility of needing to pay for legal costs associated with tenant disputes.
Keep in mind that homeowner's insurance on a beach house can be several times more expensive that a regular home. This is often due to mandatory flood insurance, hurricane damage, etc.
