Birmingham-based Lake Homes Realty, the largest lake-focused real estate brokerage in the U.S., is setting its sights on beach homes with the launch of Beach Homes Realty.
Beach-Homes.com features more than 68,000 coastal properties in 14 states, according to the company.
“Our company has been a leader in niche real estate for more than 10 years and specializes in helping connect buyers and sellers with dream homes on or near the water,” said Glenn S. Phillips, CEO and chief economic analyst of Beach Homes Realty. “Beach Homes Realty was the natural progression in connecting buyers and sellers in specific niche markets. Beach-Homes.com is an advanced tool to simplify these searches … From coastal lots in quiet beach communities to spectacular multimillion dollar estates in Miami, Beach-Homes.com has something for anyone who has dreamed of living the beach life.
Florida has the most listings on the website, with 41,603 as of May 16, followed by Texas, South Carolina, North Carolina, Mississippi, Maryland, Massachusetts, Alabama (1,647 listings in 13 beach communities), Delaware, Virginia, Connecticut, Louisiana, Georgia and New Hampshire.
“Beach Homes Realty accesses MLS data from these 14 states each day, so those searching beach homes and lots will have the latest offerings,” said Phillips. “Instead of having to search separate websites or navigate through non-coastal properties, we merged our targeting technology expertise and niche real estate specialization to streamline the process. This beach niche emphasis benefits serious shoppers, as well as those simply dreaming of owning a vacation home.”
