Recently sold a home that had sink hole remediation completed.
New owners added a pool, family room and two bedrooms after owning home for three years of their over 20 year ownership.
Remediation was completed 17 years ago. New buyers believe a home that has received remediation has sitting on a much more stable foundation.
-
Recently sold several condos in a community with remediation in progress. Again, a remeditated property has more stabilizing grout beneath it.
-
Sinkholes, sand, tropical storms and sunscreen....all part of the environment.
Snow, ice. road salt, snow tires, dead batteries, strained backs, not so much a part of the Florida experience..

Well considering the whole State of Florida is prone to them, I would say statewide. You can be living on a sinkhole and never know it. I have two sinkholes under my house, not repaired, and one that opened up after TS Debbie, it is about 20 feet wide and 10 feet deep.

Hi Felix - the best thing to remember is that Florida is basically a big sand bar jutting out into the water :) While some areas are more prone to sinkhole insurance claims than others - there are sinkholes throughout the state. Are you specifically looking for property in the 34606 Zip Code? If so, I've put together a list of everything currently available in that area - feel free to click the link below to see what's out there!

Prices in that area currently range from $25,000 to $279,000.

I hope this was helpful for you!
