We refer to the FEMA Flood Maps showing if, where and how flood zones might impact the property.
Q. Does the Seller have a survey?
Most Sellers can produce the survey used when they purchased the property and if not too dated, can be recertified to satisfy Title Insurance by the original surveyor along with a Seller’s affidavit that nothing has changed. If there are changes to the property such as fence, shed, driveway, pool or patio, a new survey will be required by Title Insurance.

Sellers sometimes provide one to justify asking price. Environmental Evaluations show if areas of the land are impacted by environmentally protected plants, species or soils, effecting land use, thus value.

The distance and estimated travel time shown on Google Maps, adding the factor of seasonal traffic conditions gives us a range.
