Why More People in Our Area Should Look Into Flood Insurance

At Asheville Insurance Center, we are excited about the region’s growth and potential. People are drawn to our area for its natural beauty, moderate weather, and exciting opportunities.

Whether you are new to the area or a long-time resident, you should be aware of one aspect of protecting your home: the growing importance of flood insurance.

What Is Flood Insurance?

Flood insurance is protection from rising waters available through a FEMA-managed program. It is generally not part of basic home insurance policies and must be applied separately.

Why You Should Consider Flood Insurance for Your Asheville, NC Home

From changing weather to increasing development, there are several reasons why the need for flood insurance is increasing in our area.

Our location often puts us in the crosshairs of severe weather patterns. Heavy rains reach us from the southwest and midwest, and strong rains resulting from hurricanes can reach our area from the south and east.

In addition, we are experiencing unprecedented growth. This growth can occur in flood-prone areas, cause new areas to be subject to flooding, or change what is considered flood-prone areas.

The bottom line is that you should check the flooding possibilities for your property and whether flood insurance is a prudent option.
