Erika,

As realtors, we are not allowed to disclose information you're requesting, but I can provide you with the tools to do your research - http://www.trulia.com/crime/#!mecklenburg-nc/14/35.24077,-80.83095/Charlotte,NC,Toddville_Road/

That is a link for the crime map of Charlotte so you can zoom in and look at certain areas you are interested in.

Please contact me directly via phone, email or text for specific information on buying a home - I'd love to help you out. I work for buyers at no extra cost and love negotiating a price down.

Good morning Thero:
If your home values are below market values and you own the home, you can stay and pay the mortgage down until you have equity again. If your property is in a FEMA flood zone, you can purchase flood insurance, but you should hire County Surveying to do land survey for the specific purpose of certifying if your finished floor elevation is above the FEMA flood line. If the finished floor of your home is above the floodline, you may not need flood insurance. If you appreciate an answer, please give "thumbs up".

Good morning Thero:
The City of Charlotte SWIM buffers are for Storm Water Improvement and Management in Storm Water Zones (SWZ). These are different than Federal Emergency Management Agency 100 and 500 year flood-lines. SWIM or SWZ designations have regulations intended to improve water quality of runoff and storm water by restricting development and managing vegetation. If your area were being developed today, your home would not likely be able to be built in a SWZ. For details on how the restrictions impact you, you should meet with planning and zoning officials.
