Did you know that flooding is the most common natural disaster and water damage to parts of your home may not be covered under your homeowners policy? If you live in a high-risk flood area, you may be required to have flood insurance. If you do not, we may still recommend it.
Our teams work closely with realtors, their buyers and sellers on coastal real estate purchases to ensure successful transfer of flood insurance or help to find an appropriate market for what type of insurance you will need in order to satisfy bank requirements prior to closing. We are well versed in the topics of flood insurance, elevation certificates, and placing coastal homes with the best possible market for the primary insurance.
