Finding FEMA flood zone maps for real estate properties has become easier & easier.
I wanted all to know that for the counties around there in North Florida its even easier than ever.
First get the parcel # of the property, land or home you are looking at.
Second, go to http://www.srwmdfloodreport.com/ Click the county are inquiring about, click go, and type in or past the parcel number you are interested in. This will map the property with a nice aerial map & highlited your parcel. I will show any flood zones in the are. You can also click the legend button to see what everythign means.
If the property is in a flood zone, this does not mean the end of it. Flood insurance is very affordable, usually costing only around $300 per year. Ask a Realtor for more details.
Here are the county property appraisers sites along with the corresponding flood zone site.
Columbia County - Lake City, FL - Fort White, FL
Suwannee County - Live Oak, FL - Branford, FL
Hamilton County - Jasper, FL - Jennings, FL - White Springs, FL
