Sell My Flooded Home


August 25-29, 2017 is the date that marks history for all South Texas. Yes 2 months later, we are unfortunately still talking about Hurricane Harvey. Crazy to think it was already that long ago, it seems like it was just a few days ago we were all surrounded by tons of water. Nearly 203,000 homes were either damaged or destroyed in the catastrophic Harvey, costing an estimated $180 billion of damage. This is more than any other natural disaster in U.S. history. Harvey made its first landfall on August 25th, 2017 and then made landfall another 2 times after that over a 6-day period. A total of 738,000 people who registered for assistance with FEMA.

Harvey recovery relief

Harvey Recovery


The recovery time for Harvey is very well above average, rebuilding is expected to start around 3 months after landfall. How long is this rebuilding process expected to take? It is estimated that the rebuild recover time will be up to 20 months. The rebuild time frame is not measured by the size of the storm, but by the damage it caused. Houston is now about to hit the recovery timeframe. What does recovery mean? Well for a lot, it means preparing to get your home repaired. For others, rebuild is selling your home and starting over.
