    Needs work, but for $107K, you could fix this place up pretty nicely and throw a rock into the ocean from the front yard.

    16th street in cocoa beach is the only place you should consider, i heard there's even a guy who gives away free boards!

    do not under any circumstances consider barefoot bay, as their private beach access is terribly overcrowded and the peak there is really mushy close out city kooks and longboarding elderly people and wavestorm kids ten abreast..........do you believe me?

    For only 175,000 you can have this lovely place 15 miles from the beach

    Home prices here are extremely low. With decent income and enough research, you can settle down in a comfortable home in close proximity to the beach in Central FL.

    houses may be cheap, but I heard property taxes are high...and, if you're right near the beach, you'll need to clean the salt off your windows every week.

Doesn't have that rich douchey feel that south florida does, more of an obx type environment. I'd live there.

    Don't forget it's a "stand your ground" state with a "bong ban" and an exotic pet problem.

    Thanks for all of the info. My dad was an engineer at NASA and I spent a lot of time in Cocoa Beach growing up in the 70's (60's too I guess, but i can barely remember those days). I've looked at Melbourne Beach/Sebastian and I agree it is very reasonable and nice. I just know that it stays a lot warmer in the Winter farther South. So, maybe I take a look at Hutchinson, too.

    The address on that listing is incorrect. That house is on US 1 not A1A. Big difference.
