It's a terrible feeling when you get the call, and you know that it's going to take twelve or more hours to get to them.

Vineland, NJ (Okay a bit far, but whos down for a drive??)

Okay yo might be able to scrape by at 1,100 at some of these places Good Luck!
This is such a random list and makes absolutely no sense. Did you just type the first 6 towns that popped into your head?

New Bedford is an economically depressed area. There is no reason anyone would choose to live there. The same goes for Vineland, and Vineland is nowhere near the shore where the OP is looking to live.

Yes, those palm trees... and the roaming alligators and Burmese Pythons, and the sink holes, and the folks addicted to Methamphetamine and "Bath Salts". And, now it has been revealed that Florida has a rapidly-growing population of wild monkeys carrying a form of Herpes that is fatal to human beings.
What's not to like?

lol , ansky , I think he's (?) trying to save me $$ :-)

The Massachusetts coast is generally colder than the Jersey coast so I totally count it out anyway.

Well, there's whaling. Or was.

My niece lived in New Bedford because she was able to buy a one-bedroom condo for $53K and it was an easy commute to her job. So, yes, what you said. She did send some nice beach pictures from there. (She has since married and moved to a Boston suburb.)

I don't think this is what the OP is looking for, though.

Yes, yes, yes. We don't want any more folks from the north. Keep believing all of that. (This from an ex NJer living in paradise now)

Vineland is 45 minutes away. And it was more there to be sarcastic.

New Bedford area is literally right on Buzzards Bay. After living near there for some time, that shoreside is far and widely underrated for what it is and only locals know about its beauty. Simply why I recommended the stretch from there to Wareham. Cheap, Pretty and Close to the Spit/Cape/Tropics. Its Cheap. Ocean View apts / homes, and short drive to the Cape, which is definitely worth the drive. And yeah, New Bedford isnt booming like the rest of MA.. it is cheap for now, until the trains come in about 2 years. So might as well throw that option out if the OP wanted the water/views aspect.

Again the budget is $800, your not exactly getting Malibu's, Marthas Vineyards and the Hamptons here.. and especially nothing within walking distance to any Jersey Beach. Simply just throwing in other suggestions that arent half bad.

But for the OP, have you thought of Lakeside property as well? I know someone personally who leases his Owassa Property for about $1k a month.. im sure theres some ranging 20% outwards. Im not sure if by when you want the wwter sport/sand/beachy aspects of living near the water.
