Property values take a beating at Beaches

I live in Atlantic Beach & had my home appraised in December of 2007 at $180,000. When looking to refinance, just 5 months later, the value is now $140,000.

I have no idea why the appraisal value went down but does it have anything to do with the risk insurance companies take by covering a home in a location close to a huge body of water?

Maybe it has something to do with the Section 8 Villas and the garbage associated with those kinds of places, littering up the city.
