I think you have some great answers already, and I agree with what has been said. Of course, it is all about location, but here in San Diego not all beach communities are equal either. Oceanside is a great example of a beach town where you can likely find attached properties near the beach for under $500,000. Oceanside has undergone a revitalization in the last decade, and continues to grow and get better. Right next door in Olde Carlsbad you also can find attached homes that are under $500,000. Here you will be able to walk not only to the beach, but into Carlsbad Village, where there is fantastic dining, shopping, etc. If you or your clients have the time you will find some deals in either of these places! No need to put on your hiking boots unless you are looking in some of the pricier communities, like La Jolla or Del Mar.
