My husband & I visited Madison & Ridgeland yesterday. We have also looked at S.C., Tenn & Alabama for retirement. This was a great area! We noticed that real estate was more affordable in Ridgeland. Are there any areas of Ridgeland that are flood prone due to Ross Barnett Resevoir? Are there any home foundation issues in this area? Looking forward to coming back for another visit. Thanks for your help.

The Pearl River flooded in 1979, but the flooded area was south of the Reservoir, flooding parts of downtown and Northeast Jackson. I don't recall anywhere in Madison County flooding. It flooded in Rankin County out Lakeland Drive, which is why when you drive out Lakeland you will notice much of the housing and retail development really takes off once you get past the airport, where the elevation begins to rise somewhat.

Regarding foundation issues, yes that definitely can be an issue in the Jackson area. It's important to check that out when looking at a house.
