Thanks for your response. I interviewed 4 agents and finally picked one. So far it has been slow but I have been told that the whole Pompton Lakes area has been slow because of plume and Dupont issues. I am fortunate not to be in the Plume area but it's just the negative publicity that will be tough to overcome. Anyway thanks for your input. Now I hope we can just sell it!

It really depends on location with Pompton Lakes. The Dawes Highway area has been hit horifically ever since the dam was finished in 2006. The closer to the river the worse it is, your safe about 6-7 blocks up from the bridge/river. ... more

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
What do you mean by water issues? If you mean flooding, the best way to find out is to look at the Army Corps of Engineers' flood zone maps. You may be able to find out also from a homeowners' insurance company. If it's in a flood zone they will require flood insurance so they should have access to the maps in order to decide whether or not that type of insurance is needed.

Good Luck, let me know how that goes or if I can offer you any other help.

Hi Christy,
Pompton Lakes has many houses for sale that require flood insurance. is a website you can try to use, but it is difficult to navigate. The best way is to call the listing agent or another Realtor who is familiar with the area. In most cases, we would know just by the address. Good luck! ... more

Stephanie my apologies for the earlier answer, here are guidelines I found from Fannie Mae regarding property eligibility.
Environmental Hazards: Eligible Properties
Fannie Mae purchases or securitizes mortgage loans secured by properties affected by environmental hazards if:
- the effect of the hazard is measurable through an analysis of comparable market data as of the effective date of the appraisal, and
- the appraiser reflects in the appraisal report any adverse effect that the hazard has on the value and marketability of the subject property or indicates that the comparable market data reveals no buyer resistance to the hazard.
Environmental Hazards: Ineligible Properties
In rare situations, a particular environmental hazard may have a significant effect on the value of the subject property, although the actual effect is not measurable because the hazard is so serious or so recently discovered that an appraiser cannot arrive at a reliable opinion of market value because there is no comparable market data; such as sales, contract sales, or active listings available to reflect the effect of the hazard.
In such cases, the mortgage will not be eligible for delivery to Fannie Mae
