The elevation of an address refers to its height above sea level, or how high above sea level the address is elevated. Elevation is sometimes researched out of curiosity, or to determine a home's expected flood level. A higher elevation means the address is less likely to be susceptible to flooding, which is a bonus for home buyers. With modern technology, and easy access to the Internet, you can easily find the elevation of any address within seconds. All that you need is the address of the location.
