After The Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act passed, I wrote an article about rising flood insurance premiums. This greatly affected buyers and sellers by making it difficult to buy and/or sell in high-risk areas due to the unaffordable cost of insurance. Thankfully Congress approved a new bill to alleviate some of the financial stress that was suddenly placed on the properties in high-risk flood insurance zones, many of which are in our community! The Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act passed in March, capping annual insurance premium increases under the National Flood Insurance Program at 18% per property annually. It also allows people buying homes covered under the federal flood insurance program to pay the subsidized premium rate at first, rather than the higher rate. While this doesn’t tackle the bigger issue at hand, it does calm the waters for now!
