Not gonna lie. The waterfront properties I fantasize about? I check their height above sea level.
There's a great piece of property I've been following for a long time. It used to be a "fixer upper" because the neighbor's property sloughed off onto it and crushed half the house. It went from $1.9m to $475k with a creak and a groan.
Now it's $300k with a house to haul off. The neighbor's house went on sale about four months ago... and sold for $2.3m. There was absolutely no notes in the listing about "subsidence" or "landslides" or "shoring" or any of that shit.
