Orlando Sink Holes; Check Before you Buy

A new online service called Flood Insights is available to consumers if the want to find out if a property is located close to a sink hole within 1/2 mile to one mile of the home.  Sink holes are weaknesses in the ground foundation causing them to collapse.  There has been 2 sink holes recently in Windermere, Florida.  One Wax Berry Court, and in May 2012 on Indian Deer in Summerport.  Sink holes are an act of nature, really not common, and hard to predict where the next one will happen.  If you have concerns when purchasing a home, you can ask the seller for sink hole disclosure, in addition to using this service.
