There are a lot of good houses for sale on the water in Brick. There are obvious problems with many that can be resolved. Most homes need to be raised and that makes people afraid. However, when looking at the price of the house you can add in the price of repairs and lifting to make sure that you are getting a fair price. I believe that when this is all over and the market settles back in to "normal" these houses are going to raise in prices being on the water.
You need to take a look at the new flood maps, assess the damages and talk to an insurance broker to get quotes on flood insurance. If this is a second home you need to discuss that with your insurance agent as well to make sure you have adequate coverage.
I live on the Manasquan River and had damages to dock and deck. It was expensive to replace but I had adequate insurance to cover.
I can help guide you in this process. My husband is also an electrical contractor and he has a network of general contractors, plumbers, and companies that raise houses. We can help you get the quotes you need to do the math to determine if the price is the right price to pay for a house that is in flood areas
