Unlike Malaysia, the United States of America has vast tracks of land that offer a wide choice of where one wishes to live. Friends of mine in the U.S. own sprawling properties including ranches and pecan nut farms. Most of them build their own homes so houses there are unique with their own designs.
The vast U.S. land-mass naturally has a longer coastline offering more beach and coastal properties for the picking. Beaches are a natural attraction thus many people enjoy living along beaches and the coast.
U.S. also has many islands that offer beautiful homes in even more beautiful surroundings.
Manteo in North Carolina on Roanoke Island is a vibrant holiday town with great holiday attractions including restaurants, galleries, shops and the famous North Carolina Aquarium. Needless to say Manteo real estate is much sort after for any season of the year.
