More Flooded & Gutted Homes Under Contract. Values Still All Over.

What is the Value of a Flooded and Gutted Home in Southeast Texas?

  • Flooded gutted chart 45The number of flooded and gutted homes to go under contract is now up to 4.
  • The number of flooded and gutted homes listed in the MLS is now up to 45.

The chart above shows the average price per square foot of the flooded and gutted homes that are listed and the 4 that are pending (under contract).

The real estate market is just beginning to show what investor buyers are willing to pay for a flooded and gutted home.   From everyone I've talked to the opinion is there will be a lot more flooded homes for sale than there are buyers for them.  So for sellers my advice would be put your home on the market as soon as you can.   Price it aggressively to attract the investors that are buying.  Or take your time and fix it up.  The market analysis' that I've been doing for people show most are much better off fixing the home and selling it fixed rather than "as is".

If you would like a market analysis "as is" and "rebuilt" to help you decide what is best for you contact me.  You can reach me on the blog or call, text my cell.
