I'm interested in the market and opportunities in Galveston, and don't know where to start with getting the right pulse. I'm looking at both SFR and Multifamily. I know, it has to cash flow, but curious if anyone has any insight into:

* How to estimate insurance costs (flood, windstorm, and standard)

* How to best verify a property condition (considering the location)

* How to know good areas (some homes have been abandoned for years next to new builds, quality can be street by street)

* General tips or recommendations for what to look for, or look out for
