Buying a Home? Do This Today!

No, we’re not talking about buying a car.  If you are considering a home purchase, please do NOT buy a car or make any other large purchase until your your loan is approved and you have closed on your home.

Today, I would like to suggest that you get into your present car and drive!  Jacksonville has had over 20 inches of rain in the past few days, and some of the worst flooding in years.   If you are considering buying a home, you have a chance to see what your potential neighborhood or house looks like after tropical storm Debby’s visit.

I consider this an opportunity, because most people shop for a home when the weather is pleasant, and then discover months or years later that their property is low and retains water.  Please be careful, and do not drive through a flooded street.

If you are just starting to think about a new home, now is a great time to look.  Just give me a call today!

  1. What a great idea to check out the neighborhoods after such a storm! Sure can give the homebuyer a great perspective. I wish some of your rain would head our direction towards Texas…if you have any influence, feel free to send it our way 🙂

  2. Good advice Liz, especially in an area prone to large amounts of rainfall in a short period of time.

  3. I’m so sorry that you are experiencing all of the rain, but I have to admit that I am glad we got spared this time. We had a lot of rough surf Friday and Saturday and lost one life to drowning in the rough Gulf, but have had beautiful weather ever since T. S. Debby took the turn towards you.

    I think you gave very good advice about driving around and checking out the area and I hope myou dry out soon without too much more damage.
