Thanks for any general figures...
Your best bet is to contact several insurance companies to ascertain costs. Costs will vary depending on where you are looking. Also keep in mind that some areas have now been deemed to be in flood zones, after FEMA redid the flood maps, and although inexpensive, about $200 to $300 per year, it is something to consider. Once again, check with insurance companies. I would be happy to refer you to a reputable company, if you would like to DM me.
The Beach Plan insurance rate hikes are still in limbo I believe, several bills have been submitted to stop the increases, that were approved while Easley was Gov. He himself now is under heavy scrutiny as is his wife, and several land developers in the Charlotte area. It's dirty politics as usual, and I haven't heard where the Beach Plan is currently standing at this point. Anyone out there, have any updated news on the Beach Plan?
