LIFE BY THE BEACH
Right around the time of year the sun starts sticking around longer and the temperatures creep upward, a house by the beach starts to sound mighty nice. Though with far less beachfront property available than people who want to own it, that can be a costly proposition. With help from Realtor.com, Trulia and Sotheby's International Realty, we found a few gorgeous beachfront spots just waiting for buyers who have the capital to spare. The rest of us will have to settle for some time at restful beach resorts to figure out our path to riches.
