Resources for Industry and Professional Stakeholders

Middletown maintains email distribution lists of local real estate agents, flood insurance brokers, and land surveyors and distributes quarterly outreach materials to these individuals. We will also call on our industry stakeholders should community education and outreach events arise. If you have not already received an email from the Floodplain Manager, please email to be added to the email list.

Real Estate and Insurance Agents 

On July 7, 2023, Governor Phil Murphy signed bill S3110/A4783, which requires sellers of property and landlords to make certain notifications regarding flooding. For more information see here. (PDF).

FHA's Limited 203(k) Program permits homebuyers and homeowners to finance up to $35,000 into their mortgage to repair, improve, or upgrade their home. Homebuyers and homeowners can quickly and easily tap into cash to pay for property repairs or improvements, such as those identified by a home inspector or an FHA appraiser. Homeowners can make property repairs, improvements, or prepare their home for sale. Homebuyers can make their new home move-in ready by remodeling the kitchen, painting the interior, or purchasing new carpet. Read a PDF with more information about the program.

If you are a flood insurance broker, FEMA offers per-packaged marketing materials you can utilize for your clientele.
