WONDERING WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR DAMAGED HOME?
We know this can be a very emotional and heartbreaking decision for you, because you may have lived in your home for many years, raised your children there, or even invested significantly to improve your home. The thought of abandoning it can be tremendously difficult.
The Houston Home Relief Group has extensive experience in helping homeowners recognize the benefits of selling their fire or flood-damaged homes, so they can move forward. There are many considerations when asking yourself if you should sell including:
The restoration for a home that has substantial flood or fire damage can be a very long process and can take several months to complete.
HEALTH & SAFETY CONCERNS
A flood or fire-damaged home can expose you, your family and pets to potentially hazardous materials.
Following a flood or fire, individuals who were in the house during a fire will detect smoke odors even after the restoration is complete. And this could be due to the fact that they have a keen sense or subconsciously reliving the time spent in their home during the fire. These “odors” are referred to psychological odors or “heightened awareness” odors.
Living in a home that needs to be restored after a fire or flood can be very difficult. Your home will turn into a construction zone and could cause you to lose your privacy and comfort.
Some clients have chosen not to use their insurance settlement proceeds to restore their homes, but instead decided to pay off their loan balance and sell their homes. We’ve seen many cases where people pay cash for a new home. A construction settlement AND a content settlement AND inconvenience settlement AND the cash you get from us buying your home, might be to your benefit.
In a flood or fire-damaged home, there can be a great deal of loss, and the psychological pressure and burden of living in home where you have lost many sentimental and material belongings of great value can be emotionally overwhelming.
