Jim:  Buyers need to be aware of the added expense of things like flood insurance when purchasing a home!  Great that you posted the Counties in Massachusetts that are affected by re-designated flood areas.

Thanks for posting this I work some of these areas and have listings as well as interested buyers.  Having the inside information, albeit a month after it came out, keeps me on my toes. Thanks again.
