Beyond Floods helps you to protect your current property or your prospective dream home. Be prepared! Understand how flood risk affects your property and act in a timely manner! Why?
+ Mandatory government flood insurance can add thousands of dollars to the yearly cost of owning real estate
+ Flood Insurance is force-placed by banks for several homeowners when they are least aware
+ Dealing with flood insurance at closing of loans, while refinancing, or when the government changes the maps is already too late
+ Flood damage often occurs even in areas that are not deemed by FEMA to be high risk. E.g., 1 out of 3 flood claims originate outside the regulated FEMA Special Flood Hazard Areas
+ Flooding is more likely to affect your property than burglaries or fires on an average
Beyond Floods provides you with a simple way to understand the impact of these issues to your property and act on it. Download our free app and lookup any New York City, NY; Miami-Dade, FL; Palm Beach, FL; Harris County (Houston), TX; or Washington DC area property for a quick overview of flood impacts.
We will be serving other geographies soon! Please check back for updates.
To get you started in easily understanding your property structure's vulnerability to flood risk, Our Free App features the Flood Outlook Score. This 0-100 score per property address provides you with a simple abstraction of flood risk and it is calculated based on 25 influencing flood factors. When comparing properties, remember that the greater the Flood Outlook Score, the more resilient a property is to flood risk, and thus is a better real estate investment than properties with lower scores.
The free Beyond Floods app features the following:
+ Address lookup for property-level free Flood Outlook Score and Flood Risk Impacts Summary based on building structure data
+ Assessment of current and future FEMA regulations at property-level
+ Flood Insurance Premium estimates based on best available maps
+ Flood Insurance Premium Calculator
+ Climate Change Outlook
+ Comprehensive Neighborhood Reports summarizing individual building structure data
+ Currently provides coverage for over 4 million properties in the NYC; Miami-Dade, FL; Palm Beach, FL; Harris County (Houston), TX and the Washington DC areas. Beyond Floods will be serving other geographies soon.

Good location specific data and insights
This app gives me a good sense of the flood risk data on a map against properties in and around homes I am considering putting an offer on. Better than apps that give me some data for a single address each time and a boring map.
The level of detail in the report is impressive. Hope to see more features and explanations in the future.
An eye opener! Cost of owning a home matters.
With so many real estate reporting tools available for the home buyer, I was skeptic about how much floods mattered. I was woken up to reality by Beyond Floods when I realized that apart from looking at my fav granite counter tops, we need to consider the significant insurance costs and flooding risks while buying a home. 4* because the app has some minor hiccups and would be great to see access to insurance vendors on the app.
