Hillside ave in Milford Connecticut has Started Rebuilding after Sandy.

The last two years the homes in this waterfront community(and many others)  have been inundated by storms.  This past year flood lines have been redrawn for homes on our shore front communities. Some homes that previously did not require flood insurance may now require it after super storms Irene and Sandy.

 

Before you purchase your next home, make sure you get the new FEMA maps from town hall and check with your local friendly insurance agent. The town of Milford posted their new flood map online;

 New Haven County Hillside ave Home raised to be rebuilt Milford, CT

 West side Milford, Connecticut

 

East side Milford, Connecticut

 

If your home suffered more than fifty percent damage you will be required to rebuild only to FEMA standards.  This means many homes will have to be elevated and use pile or pier foundations to resist future damage.  FEMA offers their guide lines for rebuilding.

 

Another good resource for information is FEMA’s website.

Annette excellent idea to provide those links.  Flood insurance can be very costly and that is not a surprise that you want once you are under contract.

Hi Annette, that house is certainly up high, hopefully it will be back on a solid foundation very soon. The links to the FEMA maps are useful to Milford CT residents so they can check and make adjustments to their insurance policies if needed.

My brother lost his beach house on the water in RI, he is almost 60% rebuilt. Says he'll be done in a couple of more months. The rebuilding of beach properties has many challenges.

George, it certainly could influence the decision to buy a particular home or not.

 

Barbara, Sandy, and Irene…but they have also shown how strong our community ca bounce back.

 

Ed, the bottom home just stopped me in my tracks. Ive never seen a home propped up like that, love real estate for all the new situations you encounter.

 

Joe, Sorry to hear that Joe, but the prospect of moving into a newly constructed home must be an exciting thought for him.
