Hi Pam,
You ask a very simple questions that unfortunately has a very complex answer. While it is true that the next round of maps to be released, the "Preliminary Maps" set to be released soon, will likely change to our favor we hope, and will give you a better understanding as to flood premiums going forward, There are many other factors to be considered when it comes to flood premiums. Without knowing exactly where or what types of properties you are looking for, I would tell you waiting might not be a bad idea, again depending on where you are looking to buy, and the age and current elevation of the home. The wait will not be a long one as the maps are due out any time now. Again there are many factors that affect flood premiums other than just "Zones" that are not even being mention here and truth is, it is a lot of data to be listed here. If you wish to discuss this further please fell free to call me at anytime on my direct line at 609-432-3634 and we can discuss different types of properties and locations, and what you will likely be looking at in terms of premiums.

Eric C. Axelson answered:
People sell for all sorts of reasons, loss of job, job relocation, etc. If there was an issue with the entire complex, you would see more than one unit on the market at this time. Glad to see you are paying attention, but I wouldn't be concerned that there is some underlying major problem. Obviously I, nor anyone in their right mind is going make any sort of guarantee that there are no problems, but considering the low turn over rate (3 Sales in the past and1 Active listing) I wouldn't read too much into it other than the current owners personal situation has changed since purchasing the property.

It's a nice unit, let me know if you would like to check it out at your earliest convenience.

Raising your home is a very expensive and very important task! This is NOT a time to bargain hunt! Recently the Press of AC did a very informative article on this topic! You can view it at:

Matthew Rydzewski answered:
The original name of the fishing pier is "Pinto's Pier" .

For a century, the old 59th Street fishing pier stood up to the slamming waves, although for 30 of those years, it served only as a landmark and a backdrop for photography.

The pier was closed for safety reasons while it was still in private hands, and ended up as city property – part of a deal in 1985 aimed at blocking the construction of duplexes at the site.

Over the decades since then, there was never enough support to rebuild the pier, or enough to finally tear it the rest of the way down.

In the early 1990s, a small but persistent group of supporters fought to save the structure, advocating for years that the pier be rebuilt and opened to the public.

Now it looks as though Hurricane Sandy has settled the issue once and for all.

Since the storm, all the decking is gone, and only seven whole pilings remain, along with some broken pilings standing a little above the water at high tide.

Yearly rental have been a challenge in Ocean City in 2012, as most have been taken by families displaced by Hurricane Sandy. Your best bet is trying to find something just off island in Somers Point, Northfield, Linwood or even in Egg Harbor Twp. Our company has offices in Ocean City and off island.
If you need help let me know!

I toured this grouping of homes that sit right on the Bay in Ocean City after hurricane Sandy. All of the first floors were badly flooded and damaged. While I was there, All of the first floor interior walls of these units were being stripped out and appliances were sitting in the court yard. They were aggressively making repairs. These units have beautiful bay views, and are a cute little enclave of homes. However their location makes them very vulnerable.

If you would like to look at other units in Ocean City that faired better after Sandy, please give me a call!

Ocean City is a prime location to retire in. We have a new Aqua-Fitness center that also has a library,art center,cafe and history museum within it's walls. We have many activities to enjoy all year round for both seniors and young families alike. We do have several good year round restaurants in Ocean City and many more just across the bridges within a mile of Ocean City.Atlantic City is also close by. Most of the people that retire here have roots in the Delaware Valley. Many folks come from PA,Del.North Jersey and even New York. We have the 3rd lowest tax rate in the state.The people are very friendly here and it is just a wonderful place to live.Every year we see more and more people retiring here. Many of them go to Florida for a few months and live in Ocean City most of the year. That gives folks the best of both worlds.Many baby boomers are making Ocean City their primary home. There is a good reason for that. It's just a great place to relax and live a happy and healthy lifestyle. Call me with any questions you may have, as I live here year round and I have enjoyed Ocean City since 1958. My direct line is: 609-412-8258
