Watch Buying the Beach

In this show, prospective property owners provide their realtor with a list of their preferred home style and size along with any additional amenities they would like to have. Usually a great view and outdoor living area are on the top of the list when someone is looking for the perfect beach home. The main consideration is generally whether a home that meets the list of preferences can be located within their budget.

The decision comes after the buyers view three homes. Then they must choose between a move in ready home at the top of their budget, or a home that may be comfortably within the budget but requires some renovation. Occasionally they may have to choose a location near the beach rather than beachfront in order to get the most value for their money.
