HOW HURRICANE HARVEY AFFECTS THE HOUSTON REAL ESTATE MARKET

Our heart goes out to everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey. If you or your family experienced flooding, please read these Hurricane Harvey Resources & Clean-Up Tips.

If you’re a real estate investor or are considering a purchase now, please keep reading. We’ve received a lot of inquiries about this topic and have tried to provide a comprehensive overview below.

We have a database of over 100 neighborhoods and 115 condos in Houston. We have been working with other agents of the Houston Properties Team to actively map out specific subdivisions and buildings that did well (and those that did poorly).

We have listed the areas and buildings that were largely unaffected by flooding below.

If you’re looking at specific homes or buildings and want to confirm if the property is in a flood zone, please email the Houston Properties Team.

NOTE: Based on our calls and outreach, we have compiled a list of the condo buildings and areas that flooded and those that did not (below). If you have any information we can add or anything that appears wrong, please email us, and we’ll update this page.

“Paige Martin is the best Realtor. She is highly experienced and very knowledgeable. She made our buying experience an enjoyable one, not only for us, but for our daughter, son-in-law and several of our friends. We have bought and sold many houses, and Paige has been the best realtor we have ever worked with. We highly recommend her.” - Jeremy & Lynn Greene

Houston Real Estate Market

Houston Real Estate Market

Buying or selling a home in Houston can be tricky. With over $1B in real estate sales, The Houston Properties Team is the #1 Boutique Real Estate Team in Houston.

Based on what happened during the last hurricane, here’s likely what the Houston real estate market will likely look like for the next few months. There will likely be a:

Generally speaking, it is a good time to be a buyer as there will be fewer buyers in the market, due to several main reasons:

There are also typically a number of deals that come on the market after a natural disaster like this. They are rare in non-flooded areas, but they often come from the following types of situations:

If you see properties that really stand out to you, let us know, and we can do the legwork to find out how they did during the floods and how flexible a seller may be.

Also, we spend a lot of time studying the data on long-term trends (see page #3 of our Houston Real Estate Investing Trends Report – email me for a copy). As we’ve clearly seen this past week, close in homes in the flood plain (or too close to the floodplain) can be hugely impacted in a negative way.

This situation is a good reminder for buyers about the importance of buying a quality home in a quality location. While that doesn’t prevent a disaster, most of the Houston close in areas that flooded were in the known floodplains.
