The great news is that the majority of homes in Chatham County and the area are improving their flood elevations due to more sophisticated technology. These new determinations will make homes much more affordable and desirable in previously lower elevations like: Tybee Island, Isle of Hope, Talahi Island, Whitemarsh Island, Wilmington Island, Skidaway Island, to new a few.
This will mean, in some cases, significantly lower premiums on homes previously rated with a higher risk and some homes could possibly pick up sauare footage due to elevation being adjusted favorably. We, at The Robin Boaen Group at Keller Williams Realty, are here to help you figure out how this relates to you and your property or future properties you may be interested in purchasing.
