Good afternoon Fayetteville,

Does Fayetteville have any flood zones to avoid when it comes to purchasing a home?

My family & I are considering a move to Fayetteville. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Have a safe & great day

We get very heavy downpours, so even if you don't live in a flood zone, you could have the misfortune of bad drainage from a neighboring property.

Choose high ground and avoid Johnson if you can.

I've been to a development in Benton County where the whole neighborhood floods due to being in a flood pain. See if you can locate the flood plain maps. I'm sure they are out there somewhere.

Goshen and Elkins along the White River. I recall some years ago that entire area was under water.
