We're in the very early stages of considering buying a waterfront vacation home on the Weeki Wachee or one of the off-shoots/canals. Before we reach out to a realtor (who you can't always trust), I wanted to see if people here could provide some insights on the following:

1) Do the waterfront homes in Weeki Wachee Gardens typically flood?

2) Is this area sinkhole prone?

Any other info you have about the area would be helpful. Our intent is to use the home at least once/month, but rent it out while we're not visiting to help cover the mortgage.

During Hurricane Irma, everything west of US19 was in a mandatory evacuation zone.

In certain areas, you are only allowed to do long term leases (6 months or longer). In my neighborhood, some people were doing weekly/monthly rentals which was a big no-no. So, keep that in mind...

IMO its a beautiful area (Weeki Wachi Gardens), its mostly older, single wide, mobile homes but they are being pulled out and replaced w/ new houses on stilts, the last time I've known that neighborhood to flood was the no name storm of 93 butI could be wrong.
I wouldn't worry about sinkholes.
