Do you dream about moving to the Beach?

Join the club, right? We see posts all the time "Life is short, move to the beach, never look back!"  Followed by hundreds of comments..."I wish", "in my dreams", "if only"...

The reality is, we can't all pack up and move to the beach on a whim. There are a number of reasons why, but the TWO biggest are #1 Family and #2 Jobs.  

However, it is no secret that we are living in an ever increasingly digital world.  Along with that comes more occupational freedom and an influx of virtual careers and opportunity to work from home.  We have taken notice that more and more young families are able to choose where they want to live and coastal communities are now more than ever becoming family-friendly hotspots to be enjoyed year-round by people of all ages, not just retirees.

That said, we realize that not everyone has the luxury of working from home.  We are a hyper-local real estate agency at the Crystal Coast and we work with clients who want to know, "Where can I work?" Because, the truth is, unless you are comfortably retired or hit the mega millions, you are going to need an income. We get it.  So, while we can't advise about every coastal town in the country, we can give you some insight about this one. Here's a great place to start...
