Property owners are encouraged find a real estate agent to assist with the search for a new home. Their services are usually free for the home buyer. Our buyout staff will also provide information on at least one comparable home that is outside of a floodplain.
Depending on the value of available houses for sale, property owners may be eligible for additional assistance to help cover the cost difference between the house the property owner is selling to the City and the one they wish to buy.
Many families who have been through the buyout have told us that this process worked well for them and they were happy with their new homes.
