surfer's journal had a great article about Tazzy earlier this year that mentioned, among other things, that you can buy a boatload of oceanfront land dirt cheap. only problem is that it's cold, windy and rainy most of the year, but other than that it's a bargain.
Invest in that resort if you have an extra $50k lying around and then vacation there free of charge one month every year!
A few of them weren't that expensive, under half a mil, people pay that for generic suburban McMansions all the time. Question for most of us is probably more how you earn a living once you move there.
