In 2005, when Hurricane Rita headed towards Spring Texas did you stay or did you go? In 2008, when Hurricane Ike came barreling ashore did you stay or did you go?
For both Hurricane Rita and Hurricane Ike, we waivered back and forth in our decision to stay or to go. But ultimately we decided to stay in Spring Texas and ride out the storms. The decision to stay was the right decision. I know a lot of people who wished they had stayed for Hurricane Rita because the mass exodus turned Interstate 45 into a parking lot.
Just in time for this year’s hurricane season, a new storm risk calculator has been released. You can enter an address and the storm calculator estimates the risks of rainfall, power outage, storm surge, and wind damage. The default assessment is for a Category 2 hurricane but you can adjust the strength of the hurricane up to a Category 5.
The storm calculator is an excellent tool to use in deciding whether to stay in Spring Texas or head North when the next hurricane comes ashore.

We have had the privilege to work with the amazing Jill Wente twice in the past 4 years. If you want to work with someone who is very knowledgeable in the realty business and beyond that, look no further. From day one she was ready to help us and answer any questions that we had. You can see her passion and professionalism as soon as you meet her. Everything is perfect, from the photos to the staging of our home and even the fliers that she had made showcasing our home is perfect. She goes above and beyond. So if you want your house to get sold and want it done right, I'd recommend Jill Wente everytime. Anyone can put a house on the market, few can get it sold earlier than expected. She had a contract on both of our homes we sold within days of being on the market. Thank you Jill for being the best at what you do. read less
