Due to tougher regulations and revised Flood Zone Maps statewide, many homeowners are now being required to obtain flood insurance. The properties most affected are those fronting on or near a body of water. As we know, Michigan has a lot of water. While all homes are at risk of catastrophic flooding, many of these properties do not warrant flood insurance. Often the flood insurance requirement is brought up within 48 hours of closing. Many REALTORS are finding the burden of costly flood insurance to be a possible deal breaker.
This seminar will educate on the topic of flood insurance and the laws that are currently in place which govern the requirements. It will also educate REALTORS® on the many options available to assist a homeowner in either removing the requirements or getting a considerable reduction in premium. Additionally, it will teach them how to assist the homeowner in processing a refund back on premiums which may have already been paid. These are funds which have already left the State of Michigan.
