Anyone live at or around Rancocas Pointe in Mt Laurel.?...its just off of Creek Road. This area looks very nice, however I know looks can be deceiving. Any problems in this area? I 'm thinking about buying a home there. So far, talks have been favorable about this area.

It looks like a nice development and is in a nice area. The only thing I would be concerned about is flooding. The development is right on Rancocas Creek and flooding is not an unusual occurrence. There were floods in 2004 and 2010 that I remember. Some homes along the creek were threatened/damaged, but I don't know if that development was impacted.

Chances are if you buy there you will also need flood insurance and even if they don't require it, it would probably be a good idea to have it.

Default flood insurance

I have lived in Rancocas Pointe for five years and we have never had issues with flooding and we are not required to get flood insurance.

No issues with the site even back in 2004? The only reason I mentioned flooding is that the site sits right on the creek and flooding has long been a problem in the past along the entire Rancocas. Maybe that area is in a 1,000 year flood plain and hence you don't need insurance, but 2004 saw a 1,000 year flood and 2007 and 2010 both saw 100 year floods. I personally live that close to the creek without flood coverage. If it is in a 1,000 year zone, it won't cost that much.

I checked with the owner recently of the property I was inquiring about in Rancocas Pointe, and he also told me there have been no flooding in that area since those home were built. I am happy to say I will be moving in that area next week. Thank you for your responses.
