Flood Insurance

by Daniel Brouse and Sidd Mukherjee

Q: Does your homeowners insurance policy cover you in the event of flooding?
A: No.

WARNING: Do not buy real estate on or near floodplain.
Do not invest in real estate that is located near floodplain. Make sure your property has land ingress and egress from the closest 1,000-year-floodplain. Do not invest in any property located near a coast. Do not invest in a property that is below sea level. Do not invest in real estate located in Florida. Thus, our recommendation to evacuate Florida now (i.e. Managed Retreat). -- Daniel Brouse (February 4, 2018)

"Mostly stay away from the coasts because of both wind and rain issues from weather systems spinning inland. Even if you are not in a floodplain, a couple feet of rain in a day will cut off roads and overwhelm your sump pumps. Not to speak of wind taking power and telecom down." -- Sidd Mukerhjee (February 5, 2018)
