Description of Product

Complimentary to MBA Members. Live webinar held on July 31, 2018.


The Union of Concerned Scientists will present their recent analysis on the impact of worsening tidal flooding caused by sea level rise on coastal real estate in the lower 48 states. They found as many as 311,000 coastal homes with a collective market value of about $117.5 billion today are at risk of chronic flooding within the next 30 years—the lifespan of a typical mortgage. Roughly 14,000 coastal commercial properties assessed at a value of roughly $18.5 billion also are at risk during that time frame.

Using property data from real estate company Zillow* and our own peer-reviewed methodology for estimating chronic flooding risk, the analysis identifies the number of coastal properties at risk of chronic inundation, the present-day value of these properties at the zip code level, and their current contribution to the property tax base. There is hope. If the global community takes bold action to adhere to the goals of the Paris Agreement of capping warming below 2°C and land-based ice loss is limited, our analysis finds that by the year 2060 the number of homes at risk of chronic inundation would be reduced by nearly 80 percent. Communities can seek out information to become aware of their risks of sea level rise
