When purchasing a home on the NEw England coastline you will need to research the flood maps, have a professional inspect the home and check the availibility of flood insurance. Winter storms are much more likely and more powerful than hurricanes. There have been homes that have stood on the beach for 100s of years and survived many a storm. Each house in individual, the location, what it is made of, is it sheltered and what are the chances of flooding. Your buyer agents can be a great hep who is experienced with listing and selling home son the coast,
