That would be in the least desired area of Florida......That is not the Southwest Coast. Maybe the Notheast Coast.

I would guess the panhandle somewhere around, surely not anywhere in south FL.

I think Melbourne Beach and Indialantic and the surrounding beach area has the best value for the money. Beautiful not as crowded beaches either.

John, I just search gulf front homes on the mls and found 107 under $500,000 from Fort Myers to Marco Island. Most are probably small condos, but still are "on" the beach. If you'd like to search for yourself, try http://www.bit.ly/mobileflsearch for my free mobile search tool which will let you search homes in my area. Or contact me at Janet@NoPlaceLikeNaples.com and I'll help you find just what you are looking for. Beachfront Bargain Hunt is one of my favorite shows on HGTV and I'd love to help you find yours.

Mr. Benwell, Good evening! You have received some excellent answers! Do you have a certain price range that you would like to stay within? There are some gorgeous beachfront homes for sale on Marco Island that are slightly lower in price than the Naples area. Let me know if you would like additional information. Feel free to call or email any time. My cell phone number is 239-860-7176 and my email address is Michelle@MarcoIsland.com.

Dear John,

The further North you go in Florida the better the opportunities.

Being in Naples that is my first choice for houses on the beach but you are talking about homes in the 6 to 7 figures.. What would be your descriptiion, price, square footage,bedrooms etc, of "least Expensive". Most of what you will find "directly on the beach" are condos.

Best for you to identify a budget then re-ask your question.

Not knowing for sure, you should focus further north.

Look at depressed/isolated areas around the state; highly populated areas are not where you need to go.
