"“What most people are saying is, ‘Yeah, I’ll move back if you give me $5 million for my property.’”
What a laugh!
Who would buy property on the cusp of being inundated by the sea for more than the value of the next few years of habitability, plus debris removal costs?
Wouldn't it be more advantageous, financially, to have it moved to higher ground, where it is habitable for decades more?
