Due to the fact that FEMA has recently amended many of the flood maps in towns such as Cranford that have multiple areas that were impaced by flooding during the recent storm my advice would be to go directly to Cranford Municipal Building and ask if they have the revised maps and take a look at the locations of the properties you are interested individually. This would be the way to obtain the most accurate information. There are some homeowners that may not be paying flood insurance currently and their listings may indicate not in a flood zone for that reason -but that does not necessarily mean that your mortgage company will not require you to carry flood insurance on the same house. You have to be very careful and do your due diligence in investigating.
