Homes outside the flood zone in Wilmington NC
If your home is in the flood zone, your lender will require that you carry flood insurance.
Some home buyers prefer to purchase homes outside of the flood zone. Doing so may have some advantages, but it may result in your home being located further away from the ocean, intracoastal or a waterway.
A home outside of the flood zone can be built on a slab and on the ground level. Often homes in the flood zone need to be raised to some extent.
Its important to remember that in some cases the house itself (the structure) can be above the base flood elevation (bfe), but a portion of the property (land) may be in the flood zone. If this is the case, likely the insurance will be considerably less.
There are homes outside the flood zone in Carolina Beach and Kure Beach as well.
