If the consensus of climate scientists is correct, almost two million United States homes will be underwater by the year 2100, according to Zillow.com. (This is actually underwater, not financially underwater.)
Only 0.4 percent of California homes will be underwater by 2100, according to Zillow. However, the median value of those homes at risk of being victims of rising sea levels is $891,269, the highest in the nation.
More than half the homes that would sink into a rising sea are in Florida, says Zillow: 12.6 percent of homes in that state are at risk. Hawaii is second at 9.1 percent and New Jersey third at 7.3 percent.
