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.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all. Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result. I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
