“Selling A Home In A Flood Zone”

There are always challenges when selling  a home,  but when your property is in a flood zone, there is a lot more to consider than usual.  First, be sure you know what type Of flood zone you are in.  Types vary by risk level and may change over time.  Whether or not flood insurance is a requirement for your property, be sure to have information about it readily available for buyers.  In addition, having an elevation certificate, which estimates the height floodwaters could reach in your home, can help potential buyers get a mortgage for the property.  Always be honest about past and potential flood damage to avoid legal entanglements after closing.  There are many aspects to both selling and buying real estate that you  may not be aware of, and as an experienced real estate agent in the greater New York area, we know our neighborhoods and we make it our business to be sure our clients and customers are kept informed of anything that may affect the sale or purchase of a home.  If you are thinking of buying or selling property,  it is in your interests to turn to the expertise of a professional. “OUR SUCCESS HAS BEEN BUILT ONE SATISIFIED CUSTOMER AT A TIME.”
