Today we’re going to discuss one of the greatest threats not only to real estate investors, but to everyone who lives in areas with rising sea levels, frequent hurricanes, forest fires, draughts and intense heat.
Yes, I’m talking about climate change.
Whether you believe it’s real or not doesn’t matter. Because its already affecting every single person who lives in this country.
But for real estate investors there are areas that will actually benefit from climate change – areas that have plenty of fresh water and are considered to be climate havens – areas like Michigan.
My guest today is Lindsay Moore, an economic reporter for MLive who covers the housing markets across Michigan.
Lindsay and her colleague Sheri McWhirter have been writing an excellent series on the affect climate migration will have on Michigan, and whether or not we’re ready for the influx of new residents we’ll be experiencing over the coming decades.
