If it’s true that the key to real estate is location, location, location, then you would likely want to know if you are in a natural disaster zone BEFORE you buy!

This article provides a link to an interesting website with information concerning the prevalence of certain types of potential risks ranging from sinkholes to earthquakes to nuclear reactors in various locations around the country.
As an example, if the address for the offices of Hallmark Abstract Service is entered into the locator for sinkholes, our readers will be relieved to know that we are in no known danger.
