Not sure why you are asking all these questions HERE...... First most of what you are asking is
most likely available on the internet with a google search.... and then you want market information
not just about the value of a home, but also about property taxes etc. etc.
Here is what you need to do, if you are serious about buying a property, any property, connect with a reputable, experienced local Realtor who is familiar with your areas of interest, commit to one, be very loyal to your personal buyers agent, and you will be able to ask all your questions and all the advantages of working with a buyers Agent.
here is why
WORK WITH A REALTOR, YOUR PERSONAL BUYERS AGENT
I am wondering why you ask this question here at Trulia, if you are an interested and determined
buyer, you definitely should connect with a local Realtor, a buyers Agent, ie a Realtor who will be on
your side, protecting your interests, finding the right property, arrange showings, answer all your
questions, help you right a good offer, get you also pre-approved for a loan, and negotiate on your behalf the very best sale price and terms and if you commit to one trusted Realtor, he or she will commit 100 % to you and his or her services if you make an offer on a property listed by a Realtor/Brokerage in the multiple listing service will be FREE to you, as Buyers Agents are usually
paid by the seller's side, out of the sellers proceeds at the closing table...ALL THAT IS REQUIRED FROM YOU TO WORK ONLY WITH ONE REALTOR AND TO BE 100 % LOYAL TO YOUR PERSONAL BUYERS AGENT!
Why would you want to do this on your own, when there are so many details to be taken care of the
right way and so many details need to be paid attention to, inspection appraisals, loan commitment, walk thru etc. etc. in order to bring an offer to a fully executed contract and that to successful closing and home purchase.
Give it a second thought and hopefully you will decide to work with a trusted Realtor, who is experienced in your areas of interest. Please commit to only ONE Realtor!! If you need recommendations get back to me I gladly forward you names..

Good question. Required flood insurance is identified by a flood zone map. An elevation certificate is used to certify building elevations if the building is located in a Special Flood Hazard Area. A call to your insurance agent can provide with the current information on the flood zone map and if your lot is in a flood zone. More information can also be found at http://www.fema.gov/plan/prevent/floodplain/nfipkeywords/elevation.shtm
If you are building a home discuss with your builder options you may have to elevate your home.
We live along the coast. Flooding is a possibility. Even if your property is NOT in a flood zone...flood insurance can provide you some peace of mind and perhaps save you from additional costs. If I can provide you additional resources, feel free to contact me.... more
