Proper flood insurance for Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts homeowners.
One of the greatest draws to living in Southeastern Massachusetts and the Cape is the proximity of the Atlantic Ocean. With miles of sandy beaches and scenic views, the shoreline has a lot to offer local full and part-time residents. Of course, we prefer to think only of perfect weather and fun-filled activities when it comes to living on the beach, however, the truth is the ocean also plays host to a handful of tragic events, including volatile hurricanes, aggressive winds, storm surges, flooding and more.
Nationwide flooding has and continues to be a significant problem for homeowners regardless of their proximity to water. As residents of the Cape and Southeastern Massachusetts, it is critical to not only have proper flood insurance, but to be aware of our community’s unique flood risks. In fact, according to the FEMA Flood Map, many of our beloved towns sit in what’s considered a high risk flood zone, including most, if not all, of Bourne and Buzzard’s Bay. However, regardless of your pre-determined flood zone, you and your home may be at risk for flood damage, a peril that is not covered by standard home, condo or renters insurance policies.
