New Fort Lauderdale Flood Zone Map

There are new Fort Lauderdale Flood Zone map's that came out.  Current property owners, and those considering purchasing in Fort Lauderdale, need to take note of these maps.  If your property was not in a flood zone previously, but now is, you'll have an added monthly expense.  To offset some of this expense the City of Fort Lauderdale does participate in the National Flood Insurance Program's (NFIP) Community Rating System.  This allows residents, and business owners, to purchase federally backed flood insurance.  Due to the cities participation in the program, you can expect a 20% discount on your premium.

It's been 14 years since the last review of Flood Maps in Broward County.  Between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway we clearly have a high likelihood of localized flooding in Southeast Fort Lauderdale.  Flood zones are something that buyers really need to be aware of.  If you are considering purchasing a property in Southeast Fort Lauderdale, or if you already own one, please take a few moments to review these links:
