Risk-Informed Decision-Making When it Comes to Buying or Selling Coastal Real Estate

There's a Huge Amount We Know About Sea Level Rise!

We'll cover these known knowns, and explore why there is no such thing as "average" global sea level rise.

But There Are BIG Uncertainties (and Risks)

We know the world's ice is melting, but how fast will it melt?  That's the trillion dollar question that we'll explore in depth. 

Making Your Risk Adversity Critical to Decision-Making

The more explicitly you consider your risk adversity, the more robust your real estate decision-making will be.

A Real Estate Tipping Point is Virtually Inevitable

At some point everyone will decide it's time to go, and many real estate markets will collapse.  Will you get out before that? 

How Big Are the Risks, Both Direct AND Indirect?

The real estate value at risk from sea level rise is very substantial, and could lead to broader and more damaging secondary impacts.

Are There Related Risks to Real Estate Markets?

Climate change is rapidly increasing the risks of river flooding, threatening riparian real estate. Not to mention fire risk, and the implications of disappearing winters for sk.
