    Is there land that high in all of FL? Miami needs pumps to keep the seawater from flooding it on the reg.

    This is a good place to start visualizing where things are headed if sea level rises...

    Assuming 2.8% on each side of that deal, the realtors alone each brought in $1.8M before whatever cut the company/managing broker takes. Nice payday for one transaction.

    Yea, I think you would be hard pressed finding anything close to that in the Keys. The highest spot I know of is the old garbage dump on Stock Island. Couple things this would not be a primary residence, in fact if it got wiped with no insurance compensation it would sting but not be financially incapacitating. Its not right on the water and is pretty well protected from hurricanes, like i said its almost 40 years old and has been battle tested pretty hard from some of the countries biggest and best. It really just needs to hold up for 20-30 years, then I could care less...

    Pretty sure these Jumbo transactions operate on lower percentages, but I don’t know for sure. Either way, Mack is sitting pretty.

    Well, if the sea level rises so fast that you have water coming into the house every high tide, you might want to consider having the house lifted off the foundation and put on stilts or pontoons.

    And yet the realtor still probably can't afford a SFH in JH

    Last time my buddies got hit it was basically like losing the contents of his garage and laundry room since it's on stilts. He found his boat in the street a few blocks over.

    How about stilts AND pontoons? Strap some pontoons under the house, if the water overtops the stilts the house floats off. Probably important to have a good anchor out though I guess.

    Ideas like this is why you guys pay me the big bucks.

    Now we are talking. I will just put the money I would have spent on insurance into pontoons and a navy surplus destroyer anchor.

    Don't forget to buy a long chain when you get the anchor.

    I wouldn't mess with an anchor, just a really good locator beacon with backup batteries.

    Anything south of Okeechobee is practically sea level. I've seen Ariel photos of down there that basically say, swamp. Really big swamp. The bridges over the intercoastal are the only hills.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    Cmon guys. Thankfully 30’ of sea rise isn’t happening in our lives, nor our kids or grandkids lives. 3’ by 2100 maybe. Well unless a meteor hits Antarctica or something.

    30’ of sea level rise? No.

    30’ of storm surge? Maybe? It’s all water…

    Then came Covid, and the real estate surge that came with it. By the end of 2020, transactions had nearly doubled year-over-year to more than 1,100 sales. Dollar volume followed suit to $364M. How much more could the market grow?

    During the first nine months of 2021, Teton Valley resoundingly answered that question. 2021 transactions through September showed nearly 900 sales with $450M in overall sales volume. Vacant land sales were up 70% over the first nine months of 2020 and represent 67.2% of all sales in 2021 so far. The median home price has grown to $750,000 (quite the difference from $450,000 in 2019).

    If Teton Valley continues its break-neck pace for Q4, the year-end total is poised to reach $600M, or nearly triple the overall dollar volume from just two years ago."

    NEWS IN BRIEF

    Fannie Mae Issues Billions Of Mortgage-Backed NFTs

    Yesterday 11:10AM

    Alerts



    WASHINGTON—Calling it a no-risk investment guaranteed to appreciate in value over time, Fannie Mae officials announced Thursday that the lender had issued billions of Mortgage-backed NFTs. “This is as stable as they come, over the entire history of NFTs, they have only appreciated in value,” said CEO Hugh Frater, who noted that the collections of bundled NFTs have received a triple-A rating from every major credit agency. “We believe NFTs are the new cornerstone of American investment and savings, something that everyone should tie their retirement to if they are trying to be conservative. We’ve also sliced-and-diced stable NFTs with less secure NFTs and repackaged them to protect our investors from risk. That way, the only problem would be if the entire NFT market crashed, which we see as a total impossibility.” At press time, Fannie Mae was entering the futures market by hedging their mortgages against the future price of NFTs.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.
