Rising sea levels are hurting home values in these 40 cities

GOBankingRates Logo By Karen Doyle of GOBankingRates | Slide 1 of 42: As sea levels rise and hurricanes get more and more costly, the effects of climate change are disproportionately felt in some areas of the country. GOBankingRates studied the costs associated with erosion, analyzing 300 cities from Zillow’s research report on rising sea levels and then looking at the number and values of properties that have been and are expected to be impacted by climate change, as well as the total cost of that impact.
The study projects the future loss in home values from now until 2033 and estimates the number of homes likely to be underwater, due to erosion and rising tides, by 2100 — using this data to identify the U.S. cities most affected by rising sea levels. Climate change is a national issue, but every state and city needs to understand how much climate change will cost them in the coming years.

By 2100, some of these cities could have most homes underwater
