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!
