  1. The Realtors in Mississippi are thankful for your testimony and applaud NAR for the work they are doing to delay this Act.

    It’s about time that the taxpayer stop funding flood insurance for the rich with their million dollar beach homes. Why should someone with a million dollar property on or near the breach pay less in flood insurance than I pay and I’m not anywhere near water.

  3. It is interesting to me that so few home owners know anything about this issue. We speak to people every day who have never heard of it at all. In Houston, flooding is a real issue and we are no where near the beach. Lots of realtors are very nervous around here.

  4. I hear that certain areas are getting increased rates. Have the new flood maps come out yet? How can I find them?

    Mike, is an official site of FENA and has links to area flood maps and other resources.

  6. When are the senior-leaders-for-life of the NAR going to stop demanding that Mr. and Mrs. American Taxpayer subsidize the residential real estate industry? Enough is enough!

  7. Hello all, I can help you all figure out complex 2014 post BW12 flood insurance zones and price costs with FloodBuddy. We have developed and nationally launched an online, instant “calculator” for NFIP flood insurance zones and policy rates. It is up and running in all 50 states and territories, for consumers and business – and free to all to use.

    The FloodBuddy PDF is automatically sent by email to the visitor’s inbox for review and call to action. The PDF quote is programed to visually match up the visitor’s given property address for flood insurance with FEMA NFIP backed rate tables, a Google map showing the location and tracking number, like FB-12345.

    Since we are national authorized and appointed federal flood agency too, the visitor may continue on to purchase the flood policy, paying by credit card, check or mortgage lender (upon accepted policy application).
