Property taxes for Snoopy living in Oahu, Hawaii may be expensive but that’s not a problem Sea Isle City property owners have to worry about. Out of the 16 municipalities in Cape May County, Sea Isle City ranks 4th in line below Cape May Point, Avalon and Stone Harbor being the lowest in the county. The current tax rate for 2016 is .672 per $100 of assessed value. A house assessed at $750,000 has a property tax of $5,000. Most home buyers are pleasantly surprised at this fact. Another good reason to choose to buy in Sea Isle City is that the City works very hard at keeping its flood insurance rating with F.E.M.A. above average. This keeps flood insurance rates low, averaging $400-600 per year depending on location and building elevation. If your foundation has the appropriate amount of flood vents, you will enjoy a significant savings. I recently bought a home where the flood insurance was almost $1,700 a year. The owner put in flood vents as part of its renovation and I pay under $500.00. Between low taxes and unusually low flood insurance, buying in Sea Isle City makes that a smart move. Also, I am always surprised how quickly homes sell here. If a home is properly maintained, staged well and priced accurately, it sells. Sea Isle City is a home run when it comes to deciding where to buy a second home, vacation property or an investment property.
