Depends upon your needs, but if you are thinking retirement or a vacation home, you may want to consider Mexico. Americans can benefically own beach property there now through a trust called a fideicomiso. It is not as complex as this article below would have you believe. My husband and I bought a 1/2 acre beachfront lot in a luxury gated community in Baja California recently for about 1/10 of what the same lot would have cost in Southern California. The weather is nice, cost of living low - and some mortgage companies are now lending for the purchase and construction of Mexican real estate - there are American title companies to use in Mexico, as well, so that you can feel secure making a purchase.

I'd guess Gulf Coast. Someplace from Clearwater FL all the way to Corpus Christi. Florida panhandle is up and coming hotspot. Of course people have been going places like Panama City for years, but it's getting more attention lately. Also places like Gulfport MS or Biloxi,MS....AL ....etc.

You can buy at the Jersey Shore in the 300's. Belmar, Bradley Beach, too.
