"You don't say where you beach property is. There is this little issue in the world named Climate Change. At age 60 you likely won't be bothered by rising sea levels directly, but storms are another thing. My general view is any property with a salt water beach South of say Boston and East of Denver has a significant store risk. Is your property itself immune to a 10 to 15 foot store surge? And is the local infrastructure - things like grocery stores, utilities, and emergency services going to survive/recover so people will want to rent?"


I knew some folks who had shore-line property overlooking Lake Erie - until storms washed
their homes into Lake Erie.

Course, those storms had nothing to do with climate change. Just the regular climate for
that area and time for the wave action to work into the land.

Back in the day I think they called it weather and erosion.
