Is there any effect on real estate values for major floodplain acreage?

An adjustment for major floodplain is a case-by-case basis and can depend of characteristics such as zoning, development potential, and location. A floodplain adjustment may not be warranted if it does not impact the utility or the highest and best use of the site. If a value reduction is applied it is generally based on the diminished utility or site improvement restrictions caused by the floodplain.
