What's the sale price? That will determine the realty transfer fee on the closing statement and realtor commission.... Tom Hinz

As a resident and Realtor in the Community I will tell you it depends on the property you are looking at. Most of Ocean Grove is not in a flood zone... There are only a few areas that will require flood insurance ...
As to a flood elevation certificate most home owners might not have had one done because Ocean Grove was not a Flood Zone and Did not require flood insurance.

I know some of my neighbors have purchased flood insurance and the cost has been from 500 to 2000 per year... I hope that helps...If you have any other questions feel free to email me or go to my web site at

Quoted and locking are 2 different things- you may have failed to lock the rate... therefore you are at the mercy of the market...

With time and patience and the understanding of the risk you take to get such a value. I'm working on 3 short sales right now and there is no way to know ahead of time how they will work out or how quickly you will close. Each sale is different and each bank works differently.
If you need representation from an experienced agent or just need specific questions answered, feel free to reach out to me. I've received my SFR designation from NAR and have completed many of these sales successfully. Closing anywhere from one month to 3 years.

No the homes along Wesley lake in Ocean Grove did well during the hurricane. All of the homes along the lake are elevated and also the lake wall held. The area that was affected was the south end of Ocean Grove when the tide came in the storm surge caused the lake to rise far above ground level mainly due to the lower elevation on that side. Most of the flooding was in basements.

Thanks for all of your responses. I love being in Ocean Grove and now that I know that the land being owned by CMA is not an issue, my husband and I will look to see what is available.
