As a real estate agent, lender, builder, developer or surveyor, you will not only want to understand how map changes may affect your business, you will also need to accurately explain the effects of new flood maps to your colleagues and clients. You all have important roles to play:
Real estate agents need to understand the new flood maps and how they may impact home buyers, sellers and closing dates.
Lenders should stay abreast of map changes so they can ensure their clients buy and/or maintain adequate flood insurance coverage, in order to avoid potential closing delays.
Members of the building industry need to be aware of changes that can affect building and elevation requirements.
Helpful tools are available for all of these groups, and best of all, the easy-to-use outreach material templates can be tailored to fit your community and best serve your clients and customers.
