Is your home in a flood zone? Many people wonder this, especially when they are buying a home. So how can you be sure that the home you are purchasing is not in a flood zone? How can you protect your family and your investment?
Flood Zones – What You Can Do
One of the most important things you can do is research the property BEFORE you even go to look at it. One of the best flood zone tools that I have found is the FEMA Flood Zone Tool. Simply enter your address and then it will tell you what your flood zone risk level is.
After that, hire a qualified home inspector (such as myself) to perform a full home inspection and to check for possible flood damage.
