You do NOT live on a flood plain.
According to the government, I live on a flood plain. In fact, most of Silicon Valley is a flood plain.
The flood plain that my apartment complex sits on drains into the San Francisco Bay Area. If sea level rises, the water level in the bay rises and floods the flood plains. See map in the link below.
The map clearly shows that a sea level rise of only a few meters would inundate hundreds of square miles of land. San Francisco Bay and San Pablo Bay would enlarge, covering industry, residences and infrastructure. More surprising would be the enormous area of flooding that would occur in the Sacramento Valley. Hundreds of square miles would be underwater there and the intrusion of this salt water would have major environmental impacts.
Now you want to blame some mythical real estate developer for you buying swamp land in Florida!!!
Actually, I would. Southern Florida is expected to be underwater by the end of the century.
