I live one mile from the beach. It is warm year round here. The surfing is good. The people are friendly. We have tons of great restaurants. Fresh guacamole is piled high and the tortilla chips are made fresh.
Why don't you want to live here, then?
Let me show you.
A one bedroom, one bath, 576 sq ft I-kid-you-not quonset hut built in 1948 and presently located on a really ugly street is $379,000. Marked down from $390,000.
It's hard to see in the picture, but it is made of corrugated metal. This I have seen with my own eyes.
So enjoy where you are, and come here on vacation. I will take you to the fun places.
