Buying in Florida Post Hurricane Ian

The devastation of Hurricane Ian is still continuing to make a large impact on Florida. It may be out of the current headlines but the clean-up is still continuing and will for an unforeseen amount of time. There is a lot of reconstruction and rehabilitation to be completed.Buying in Florida Post Hurricane Ian

You may think this would have a negative impact on the real estate market, however, homebuyers and investors are making quick moves to purchase for a deal in the region. The market demand is high from those who are current locals and those looking to move from out of town. Many are still interested in relocating to the sunshine state. This may be shocking information because of the costs to repair or remain insured due to flood or weather damage are high and you would think there would be a surge to move out of Florida, but that is far from the case.

Post-Hurricane Ian cash investors are lined up to snag a great deal on a Florida home. They are looking for distressed waterfront homes or commercial properties to purchase and sometimes this is before they even repair their own primary residence.

While some are seeking a property purchase with this mindset, others are on the opposite end of the spectrum. There are investors who are concerned with owning a home or investment property in the hurricane area because of the imminent fact that hurricanes do happen and Florida is where it happens. The storm damage is said to be between 40-70 billion dollars and when you look at these vast amounts, you can definitely be deterred from purchasing property there.

With all of the uncertainty of the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, it is suspected that the housing prices and housing market in Florida will be very up and down and somewhat unpredictable. This can vary by area and how the area was affected. Despite this and the difference in mindset from investors, Florida is still a desired hot spot for many that are looking to move out of their home state. There will be a lack in supply with the current devastation which will drive the prices up.

This is tricky to decipher and there are a lot of opinions, however, Florida is a wonderful state full of so many opportunities for families, fun, jobs, and the desired life full of sunshine. Although there is devastation due to Hurricane Ian, the coastal areas and affected places will rebuild and come back from this natural disaster.

Keep An Eye Out For These Warning Signs Of Home Damage

Starting with the exterior, some red flags homeowners may not notice until they become a problem are related to the gutter system. While practicing routine upkeep, look out for pooling water, peeling paint and sagging or damaged seams. These warnings may indicate repair is needed to help properly direct rainwater runoff, or that the house might benefit from having a gutter protection system installed. If faulty gutters aren’t addressed in time, it could lead to leakage and subsequent water damage or mold growth both inside the home and out.

Moving inside, there are plenty of little things to watch out for throughout the interior. For instance, homeowners may not think to check the attic, but it should be inspected consistently. Unused attics can hide impending problems as they are more “out of sight, out of mind.” It’s essential to make time, especially before the winter months, to look for and replace any disintegrated, damaged or missing insulation layers. Also, attics can be prone to mold and mildew buildup. Go over the space for any moisture before it has the chance to cause structural damage or health problems.

By being diligent with home inspection and maintenance now, homeowners could save themselves a lot of time, money and stress in the future. For further examples of home damage warning signs, please see the accompanying resource.

We Are in Hurricane Season. Here's How You Can Be Prepared

Hurricane preparedness week is May 6 through the 12th and since hurricane season starts on June 1, here are some things you can do now to be prepared and aware of the upcoming season. While nobody likes to plan for the worse being prepared can give you a sense of security and peace knowing everyone in the family knows what to do. Here are some tips from the National Weather Service on how to prepare your home, your family, your pets, and your neighborhood in case of a hurricane.Prepare for the hurricane season

On average, about 12 tropical storms, six of which become hurricanes over the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, or the Gulf of Mexico developed during the hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30 each year. Most hurricane hazards include storm surge, which is the abnormal rise of seawater, and it can travel several miles inland along bays, rivers, and estuaries. Flooding from heavy rains can be possible and of course, winds, which can destroy buildings, homes, roofing material and other items left outside. Tornadoes can accompany a landfall tropical cyclone but it is rare. Dangerous ways can produce a tropical cyclone and waves can cause deadly rip currents, beach erosion, and damage to structures along the coastline. The two biggest issues usually include storm surge and storm tide, so let's talk about safety issues with these two situations.

RELATED: Emergency Numbers and Contact Information All Homeowners Should Have

Storm Surge

Water goes where it wants to and it can breach levees, pound dams into rubble, and overtake seawalls. While it might seem impossible, there are things homeowners can do to minimize the impact of flooding. You can protect your home's foundation with sandbags. Place the sandbags not only around the foundation but also near in events or openings. Aluminum or glass flood panels around vents can also help.

Water will always travel to the lowest available point. Basements are usually the easiest and fastest places that flood and actually, basements were meant to flood in order to protect the rest of the house. If your neighborhood is prone to flooding of any type, it's important to elevate the furnace, water heater, and electrical panel. Seal basement walls with waterproof compounds and install backflow plugs and valves to prevent water from getting to the rest of the home. These devices can also stop toilets, baths, and seeks from becoming geysers of water. It's also important to know how to turn off the electricity and other utilities.

Consider Buying Flood Insurance.

Check with your homeowner's insurance policy. Most do not cover flooding. You may or may not be able to even get flood insurance if you are in a floodplain so check with your insurance company and find out about protecting your home in other ways than tangible.

Storm Tide

This is where the water level rises during a storm due to the combination of storm surge and the astronomical tide.

Evacuate.

If you receive an evacuation order because of a hurricane storm tide or storm surge, it's a good idea to get your most important belongings and get out sooner rather than later. Surges can even begin to rise a day before the actual storm hits, cutting off valuable escape routes. Don't risk it. It's simply not worth it.

The weather department will be monitoring the storm tides using four approaches for measuring the timing, magnitude, and duration of hurricane storm surge dynamics. They have real-time monitoring, rapid deployment gauges for temporary monitoring, and storm surge sensors. A storm tide sensor collects the water level and barometric pressure every 30 seconds for most sites. There are located on beaches with record wave height every two seconds. The sensors are strapped to bridge piers, power and light poles and other structures along the coastline. The data is able to study the surge flooding including wave height and visualize its interaction with coastal features.

What Is The Real Estate Market Doing Nationally?

Home prices have continued to rise despite higher mortgage rates and an increase in housing supply, factors that typically put downward pressure on home prices. However, the numbers still show the market is quite resilient and costly.What Is The Real Estate Market Doing Nationally

The median home sales price has jumped every month this year, reaching a record high in June before falling slightly in July, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Some housing experts say that a slight drop is seasonal as the housing market tends to slow down in the fall. Still, the existing-home sales price in July was higher than a year ago. Such higher housing costs have taken a toll on home shoppers as mortgage applications are at their lowest level in 22 years, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA).

The current change in the housing market is partly due to the economy at large and consumer sentiment. Right now, the economy is on shifting sands, on one hand, there are signs of a weakening economy as the gross domestic product has declined for two consecutive quarters, which some economists say indicates a recession. While on the other hand, the job market and consumer spending are still strong.

Will Home Prices Continue to Rise?

Inflation, high mortgage rates, and record-high home prices are chipping away at housing affordability. A typical monthly mortgage payment is higher today than it was in June 2019. Earnings aren’t keeping up with the inflated costs. Home prices might expand, but the options will, too, according to some economists.

The typical home spent 42 days on the market this August which is five days more than last year and the first month that time on the market increased since June 2020, during the early days of the pandemic. While new listing activity has declined, the inventory of homes for sale continues to increase as homes spend slightly longer on the market compared to last year. Nonetheless, homes still spent 22 fewer days on the market this August than in typical 2017 to 2019 timing.

In the 50 largest U.S. metros, the typical home spent 37 days on the market, five days more than last August. Time on the market increased similarly across regions, with larger metros in the West seeing the greatest increase (+7 days), followed by the South and Midwest (+4 days) and the Northeast (+3 days).

Trying to time the market or predict what might happen next year is not the best homebuying strategy. Instead, it’s better to buy based on your budget and needs. If you find a home you love in an area you love and it also fits your budget, then chances are it might be right for you. However, if you make too many sacrifices just to get a house, you may end up with buyer’s remorse and an expensive choice you have to offload.

Are People Still Moving to Florida?

The simple answer to this question is, yes!

Florida has consistently been the top location for millions of Americans’ spring breaks and summer vacations, but in recent years it’s also become one of their most preferred destinations to move to. For more than a decade, Florida has remained the top destination for Americans leaving their home state.Are People Still Moving to Florida

The mass influx to the Sunshine State has been happening long before the pandemic. Between July 2019 and July 2020, more than 252,000 people moved to Florida, marking the fifth consecutive year that the state held the top spot for net migration. Even before COVID, nearly two-thirds of Florida residents migrated to the state, with one-fifth coming from a foreign country.

Additional: Did you know Florida is the only state with no snow?

So why are people moving to Florida?

Cost Of Living & Taxes

Florida is one of nine states with no income tax, which makes it very attractive to upper-income households. But it’s also attractive to low-income and middle-class families, who say their move to Florida has to do with the affordable cost of living. Also, this is not likely to change anytime soon; the state constitution prohibits the state government from imposing an income tax. Levying any new taxes or dues of any magnitude requires a two-thirds supermajority of both state House and Senate.

Florida’s other taxes are also low or mild. The sales tax averages around 7%. Further, a corporate tax rate of only 5.5 % ensures consistent economic growth over time.

This makes Florida incredibly affordable without sacrificing the quality of life of its residents. That’s not to say the state is one of the cheapest in the nation. Electricity and utilities are the most notable examples of pricey services, especially in comparison to the rest of the nation.

Job Opportunity

Florida is one of the most powerful economic forces in the country. That’s why one major reason people move to the state is to seek out better career opportunities. Obviously, there’s the tourism industry, with the state being home to Disney World, Universal Studios (which includes Harry Potter World), and Legoland. But tourism isn’t even a major job provider.

Florida has a robust aviation and aerospace industry, thanks to it being the home of the Kennedy Space Center. It also is home to a booming clean technology industry. It’s also ranked second in the country for pharmaceutical and medical manufacturing.

Education

Florida also has school choice, which allows public funds to follow students if they attend a school they aren’t assigned to by their zip code. Florida is frequently listed as one of the best states for school choice, even at times ranking No. 1 for school choice. The state has four education voucher programs, including scholarships and tax credits. The state’s friendliness to school choice has been cited as a reason for moving by some demographics.

Florida has always been an attractive place to live with its warm weather, gorgeous beaches, no income tax, and relatively affordable home prices. It has, of course, long been a mecca for retirees: Baby boomers have retired there in recent years, and a good chunk of them are spending their golden years in a temperate paradise. Now, it’s becoming an increasingly popular destination for younger residents, too. More and more millennials who can work remotely are deciding to do so by the beach.

2023 Kitchen Trends: What Florida Buyers Want

Any kitchen in a home used to be swept off to the side, or in the back of the home. It was a place that was simply used only to prepare food and cook meals, oftentimes seen as nondescript in serving a functional purpose. In recent years design trends have changed, and with them, the function of kitchens. With open floor plan kitchens, we have been them evolve into the epicenter of the house, serving as gathering places and offering inclusivity for all. With only a few months left in the year 2022, we will see a new set of trends in the new year. Continue to read to find some of the must-have trends in 2023, and what will be in. 

1. Metro Tiles 2023 Kitchen Trends

Tile kitchen backslashes are going to make a return in 2023, but this time, we are anticipating a shiner version. Say your goodbyes to matte finishes, and say hello to earthenware that will be so much easier to clean! To attain a super trendy kitchen in 2023, opt for rectangular tiles in the metropolitan style. 

2. Sunny Kitchen 

A 2023 trend we will see in kitchens is not a new concept, but one that should be adopted all over. Try some expansive windows along the countertop, or extra-wide light pipes hanging above the island or stove. Welcoming the natural light and creating a visual connection with the scenes of nature is the aim of this trend. If you add a few green plants to the kitchen shelves the biophilic design will dominate the trends over the next few years. 

3. Natural Materials 

The use of natural materials is becoming a priority when it comes to replacing the use of plastic completely. When it comes down to it, marble, granite, and unpainted wood cabinets are essential elements of the new trend, giving off a rich aesthetic quality, as well as health benefits. These natural materials do not often require chemical treatment when cleaning. 

4. New Cabinet Design 

In 2023, when it comes to new cabinet designs, you can choose between two of the most popular upcoming designs: the minimalist style, where you will see fewer hardware, such as knobs and handles, and the flat-fronted cabinets that draw the eye. But be warned, automatic opening systems requiring pressure on the door are still trending for avid cooks. 

5. Designer Kitchen Lighting 

Lighting is crucial when it comes to interior design. Depending on the lighting, the tone and mood of the room can be set. Whether it is warm or cool, this element of decoration should not be neglected. The trend for 2023 when it comes to lighting is clean and refined. Think of unique handcrafted models as assets. Looking for minimalist designs to compliment the cabinets? This is a trend that will last well into the future of clean-looking kitchens. 

6. Metal Elements 

We discussed that marble and wood are must-haves for the natural look that 2023 is bringing on. Metals can complement the aforementioned. Think of the different shades of wood and metal that can bring forth warmth and contrast to stark marble surfaces. Copper details, or brushed nickel, are particularly suitable for achieving a contemporary look. 

7. Wallpaper

In 2023 it is anticipated that wallpaper will be present in the kitchen. Some wallpapers are specifically designed for kitchen areas. You can also apply a coat of water-based matte varnish to wallpaper once it has both sets and dried to seal the edges and seams for extra protection. Any kind of wallpaper that reminds one of nature, even if it is foliage, twigs, trees, fruit, or vegetables, can bring on a fresh look to your kitchen and contrast with minimalist furnishings. 

But, if your cabinetry is made up of ornaments, or your kitchen style is industrial, then simpler, lighter wallpaper should be a second choice. Abstract patterns and others that mimic metal are going to be popular in 2023.

8. Ecological Kitchen 

The second-hand trend is not just for fashion, and it is entirely possible to buy a reused kitchen. Buying used kitchens, or what is known as "ex-show" kitchens makes sense in that it allows for the recycling/reuse of products that are in pristine condition. In addition, you will luck out in saving a good amount of money to invest in a green household appliance.
