If buying on the ocean ~ Depending on the location of the home, you would need to purchase additional flood insurance UNLESS you are at a higher altitude ( on a hill) and out of what is considered a " flood zone".Cost is depending on the coverage need. The closer to the actual water you are, the more coverage you need.
Pond or lake living isn't different from that of a regular land purchase.
Hope this helps!! And good luck!!
Waterfront in Plymouth is also affected by erosion.
I would use a local real estate professional to save time and money and also to make sure you don't miss a great rental.
Just over the bridge, Falmouth MA has more waterfront than any other town in the US.
I list and sell in Falmouth primarily, and in Plymouth occasionally.
