    i’ve actually looked at this property on st. marten’s beach. the deal is that this is basically a mobile home park where one landlord owns all the land, including the land under this shack. you’re paying for the shack, but then you have to pay monthly rent for the land that it stands on (about $900/month, if i remember correctly). given the fact that it’s literally built on the sand and that the waves are just a few feet from your door, it doesn’t seem like the soundest investment in the age of a wafming earth. heh.

    What is going on in California? $265K for this? What is happening there when it’s stormy? Big bubble, bad joke. People – move to New Jersey Shore – you’ll have real NICE house in real NICE place UP ON the beach for extra $50K.

    I also went to see this property (or actually the one next to it). I personally would not invest in this property… it is a total mess. The interior of the property is filled with old junk and the out-buildings are as well. Not to mention that it looks like it once was a restaurant and is a door down from the public restrooms.

    haha those are interesting views of the cabin…coming from someone who grew up and has 20+ years of amazing memories from that ‘shack’, it’s not really what i think about it, but from a 3rd party perspective, i can see how you got those ideas…personally, i hope everyone feels the way you guys do because then our uncles won’t be able to sell it & we can keep going to it…

    Seriously dude? Four years later, the price is down to $109k and it hasn’t sold. When is the lease up on the land? Next year? Or is it a lease like a mobile home would be? The listing isn’t clear.


    Maybe you should buy it from your uncles.

    for sure thinking about it…trying to get a few friends together to go in on it…wow i can’t believe it’s gone down that much and still hasn’t sold! i’m not sure if this answers your question, but you have to pay the grand or $900 every year just to keep your shack there lol p.s. all the junk on the walls is stuff from our great great grandfather who built the cabin back in the day and other things the family has collected over the years 😀 crazy concept huh! and i’m pretty sure it’s never been a restaurant…the building a few doors down is a food and tackle shack, besides that, you can go into hmb for your other needs….thanks for the link to redfin…it’s a total trip to see the cabin like that…wow! 🙂 it’s the rebuilding codes that are probably turning most people off…something ridiculous i hear….
