April 16.  Welcome, to this week's newsletter.  Looking back at past articles we discovered that our 2010 feature on "Affordable Places to Retire on the Water" was much more popular than we had realized. So this week we've added Part 2 to that series - 10 more coastal towns where you can buy ahome for less than the national median value.

Here is an interesting statistic. According to a survey from Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, 57 percent of Boomers plan to move out of their current home; 70% expect the home they retire in to be the best they ever had!
Using our Retirement Ranger we were able to identify 90+ coastal towns where home prices are at least slightly below the national median. In this article we have selected 10 of them for your reading pleasure.
Located in the middle of Florida's Atlantic Coast, the town is in several parts - a huge 'beach" area on the barrier island with a resort feel, and a large downtown across the bay on the mainland.  It is surprisingly affordable too.
Have you started any Pinterest boards? We've created some on various retirement topics just for fun. These boards are like online scrapbooks where you can post photos of your favorite subjects.  Ours cover everything from Best Places to Retire to our favorite movies for baby boomers. Check us out!
Although expensive by Portuguese standards, this small, bright, cosmopolitan city on the coast is very popular with expats, who find it very affordable by European standards.
Forward this to a friend.   If you have friends thinking about retirement, please forward them this newsletter. They can get their own subscription to this free weekly "Best Places" newsletter, the Daily Digest, and the East and West New Community newsletters by going to our Newsletter sign up page.
