Wexford Flooding

If you have wondered why there haven't been posts for the past several days, two words, Hurricane Harvey.   So many areas had flooding that is hard to comprehend.  My home was an island for about five days.  We couldn't leave because there were flooded roads keeping us from going anywhere.  

One thing I found fascinating during the storm was looking at the aerial images taken by NOAA.  This link will show you any address you want to see that was affected by Hurricane Harvey.

So many areas were flooded but some of the worst:

  1. Orange County - Wexford Park, 1131 and Four Oaks Ranch areas
  2. Jefferson  County - Northwest Forest, Pinewood and Bevil Oaks

Look at these addresses.  12755 Tanoak Ln,  427 W Pineshadows,  1865 Wexford Dr

This will give you an idea of how much of Southeast Texas flooded.   The residential real estate market was low on inventory before Hurricane Harvey hit.  It is going to extremely low now and for the next several months while people recover and rebuild. 

If you are looking to buy or sell a home in Southeast Texas, I can help.
