Do you have to have flood insurance to live in anywhere in Port Charlotte? Or just if you live on the water?

You can go to http://www.floodsmart.gov/ to enter a property address to see what type of zone it is in.
It is always wise especially when living on the water to obtain flood insurance. Also keep in mind that if you are financing, you will become obligated to carry flood insurance if the home you are purchasing happens to meet the appropriate risk level.

Port Charlotte is mostly a flood zone area. When you don't have flood insurance is when you end up needing it. It's always better to be safe than sorry.

There are several areas in port Charlotte that don't require flood insurance because the base elevation is high. In Rotonda many homes don't require it. However, I tell all my customers that even if its not required. It's good to have.
