Hi Michael. Generally, there are no flood insurance requirments for homesites in Lakewood Ranch. Firm guidelines can be gotten from county records, or local insurance agents. As you get closer to coastal areas, or riverfront property, your risk certainly rises. Keep me in mind if you have other questions about building, or buying in the Lakewood Ranch area. I live here and focus all my energy on this community. You can search properties at my site, http://www.patwarrengroup.com, or contact me through the email connection on the site. Thanks, and good luck.

Michael: There are no flood insurance requirements here in Lakewood Ranch. We always suggest to review and obtain a quote from insurance agents. Costs aren't that significant for here in the Ranch. You may also engage a qualified Home Inspector who can perform wind mitigation inspection. This may save you costs on Home Owners Insurance. Of course, Your greater requirements for Flood Insurance are closer to the River and Inter-Coastal. Please call or email with any questions or for the name of a preferred local Insurance group.

In Lakewood Ranch, almost all lots do not require flood insurance but it is always a good idea to get it anyway since it is inexpensive and you never know when a fluke circumstance could put you in jeopardy. If you are using an agent, your agent can easily check the flood zone rating for any property.
