My Name Is Priyanka Johri… I’m A Local Resident Of Houston and I’m Here To Help

This weekend, I have been visiting different communities in Houston, trying to help people figure out what they need to do with their flooded homes.

The home that I’m currently standing in was flooded. It's in Cypresswood and Champion forest area, and the owners have called me for help.

I’ve also met several neighbors, in this neighborhood, who are trying to figure out their options…

Can they sell?

Should they repair?

Should they sell it to an investor?

Do they pay the mortgage company?

...So I figured that I’d write this quick post to help others who may be in a similar situation.
Each Flood Case Is Different

Buyers - It’s the perfect time to hop off the fence!

Our local real estate market is coming out of the doldrums

Last couple of years I have been talking about how the plunging oil prices, coupled with the over-expectation of what the arrival of the Exxon campus would bring, caused a surplus of homes for sale inventory and a decline in number of homebuyers. The Woodlands and surrounding areas has experienced lower home values and longer market times. In a definite deviation from the national trend, while the rest of the country saw an increase in home prices, we saw a decline; though some of the decline in fact is more to do with price correction in 2015 due to hedging of home values in 2013 and 2014 based on Exxon move.

Between late 2014 to last July, the region lost nearly 25,000 oil production and services jobs and more than 29,000 manufacturing jobs, according to The University of Houston’s Bauer College of Business. A too-high percentage of those jobs lost were from our area.
