State of play: Flooring in the living areas and bedrooms was updated a few years ago, and the kitchen has been renovated with granite countertops, newer cabinets and lighting.

  • The primary bedroom has a balcony overlooking the backyard and a concrete patio for outdoor entertaining.

Between the lines: Jefferson Chalmers is a great place if you like to get on the water, but it's known to be flood-prone.

💭 Joe's thought bubble: Most home purchases carry risks — few scarier than potential flooding — but this opportunity to live near the water at a discount is worth a look.
