Yes the property is in a flood zone, which is the bad news!
The good news is that the area doesn't flood (or at least very little), and the price of the property often reflects a discount over non flood zone properties.
My office is local to Lake Hiawatha and we deal with this all the time.
Give me a call if you'd like to come in ad go over the listings in the area.
Good luck,

Yes, this property is in a flood zone, however, since the Army Corps of Engineers project in the 80's, there have been no floods. Owners still must pay flood though, it is calculated on the mortgage amount. If you like the home, call an insurance agent, you may find that the amount is minimal enough that you may still be interested.Jackie does alot of business in Lake Hiawatha and knows the area extremely well We would be delighted to help, feel free to contact us at any time!

Hi Scott,

Yes, that property is in an A6 flood zone, so you will need flood insurance if you decide to move there. I looked at the flood map, and all of Rockaway Blvd is squarely in the flood zone. If you want a copy of the flood map, e-mail me via my profile.

Good luck!
