I am moving to the Melbourne area. So far I've noticed that the Viera area is the nicest and newest place in Brevard County. We might want to live closer to the beach though. I've noticed there are some properties for rent on the barrier island facing the ocean. Are these properties mostly for vacationers? Would it be odd if we rented a place along the beach for 6 months to a year?

From a fiscal point of view, these desirable locations are expensive to purchase and own. Many owners will see the vacation rental market as a way to pay the bills. The difference in rents on a vacation (furnished) property and annual rents are often 4x.
Many people do rent these vacation rental properties for several months at a time, and you will find people doing as you are talking about and renting for 6 or 7 months.
Renting in a location for a month or two is a very good way to determine with little risk where you will be happy living for an extended time.

No, people own much of Florida's beach front. However, few of these people live in these homes year-round, much less conribute to the local economy. The prettiest parts of Florida have huge sections of middle class living in trailer parks, while the prime real estate is owned by millionaires from the North.
