National Flood Zone App: Extremely useful and convenient. The app is not overly complicated to use. Very self-explanatory. I am a Realtor and since purchasing the app a few days ago I’ve used it multiple times for work already. It saves me time not having to navigate the FEMA site which when you are at a Property is difficult on a phone and when deciding between 2 homes; flood zone vs non flood zone can make all the difference for a client. This app gave me my answer with a few clicks and I was able to show my purchaser client where the home rests in proximity to a flood zone. - Flood Zone App Store Review

REALTORS AND REAL ESTATE AGENTS
Add value to the service you provide.
Top agents are knowledgeable of flood zones. Areas with a significant risk of flooding can be located miles away from bodies of water or rivers, and lender-required flood insurance can put a reasonably priced home out of the reach of some buyers. Use the FLOOD HAZARD ZONE APP to identify these properties and save yourself and buyers time and frustration.
You can customize the map to hide or show FIRM Panels, Flood Hazard Zones, LOMRs, LOMAs, River Mile Markers, Coastal Gages, Base Flood Elevations, Water Lines, Coastal Barrier Resources System Area, and Levees. FLOOD ZONE shows FEMA approved flood hazard maps using National Flood Insurance Program data that is updated regularly. In the United States, flood zones are areas identified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Each flood zone is defined by it's risk of flooding.
Flood Hazard Zone App: Excellent app for home buyers and realtors. If in the market for a new home that is near a body of water this app will help you in making an informed decision on how much risk of flood you would be assuming in that purchase. - Flood Zone App Store Review
