Flood Zone Head Scratchers – New Orleans

I was doing some research for a client in New Orleans recently and was reviewing the flood zones in the particular areas we were looking.  I came across this rather silly flood determination – Note: Zone AE is the flood zone, and the yellow X500 zone is NOT a flood zone.

Seems to me that this is more evidence that FEMA’s flood determination policies are probably more arbitrary than scientific.  I mean, what *significant* difference can that little gray area have to put it in a flood zone??

Nearly half of buyers not Pre-Approved

This blows my mind – forget the fact that First Time Homebuyers go looking at houses without being aproved – WHO are the agents SHOWING houses without knowing this information either?

This is a 7 minute video, but these mortgage guys are highly entertaining and informative. And yes, this IS the front picture of the video…)

Construction Update – Pelican Point – 6362 Royal Lakes Estates

Exterior stucco and brink is complete, along with staining of columns and front door.  This home is coming along very nicely, and as the finishings start to be installed, there is no doubt this home will generate some buzz.  The floor plan is great.
