Today, we're going to dive a little bit on Flood Zones. You might be looking around for a great spot with a great view of a water and scenery close to it, like maybe a lake or a river. You checked and it's a good distance away from where you're going to build your property, like maybe a hill.
The chances of this property flooding are pretty low, so you might ask...
"Why in the world am I in a high-risk flood zone? How do I get it changed?"
Well, there's a process you can go through to get this changed. It's called a letter of map amendment or LOMA. What this means is that we submit different elevations over to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to have them review and get your property removed from the high-risk flood zone or special flood hazard area.
Some people forget that this is an option. Although it's a rare option since it depends on different floor elevations on the Elevation Certificate. Any option is better than no option, right?
