How can flooding affect the value of your home?

There is no one simple answer to this question as the effect of flooding on house prices varies by the geographical area and the extent of the damage the flood caused. There is undoubtedly a risk of house prices dropping following a water surge in a specific area. Knowing that a property is in a flood area can make a difference in the amount a buyer is willing to pay.

You cannot prevent a flood from reaching your home, but there are some things you can do to protect your house:

  • Add seals and barriers on doors and windows to prevent water seeping in
  • Add a sump pump system to drain water away from your house
  • Consider putting valves on drainage lines and toilets so that sewage cannot back up into your property when a flood occurs
