Home Buying in Swansboro>Question Details

Home Looker, Home Buyer in Swansboro, NC

Is there any online resource where I can find out the flood history for a specific home for sale in Swansboro, NC?

Asked by Home Looker, Swansboro, NC Sat May 12, 2012

I have maps of flood zones in the Swansboro area. The house is in a 500-yr. flood plain....whatever that means. If the home has ever been breached by flood water from the nearby river, I do not wish to purchase it.

I don't know of any resource that will tell you if a specific home has ever been flooded. According to the fine folks at FEMA, everyone is in some sort of flood zone, it's a matter of how high the risk is. Without knowing more about the property, it sounds like this is in the relatively low risk shaded X or X areas. Lots of general information available out there, but I just don't know of anything specific for individual properties.
