The Jacksonville Florida area gets a lot of storm warnings.
There is always another hurricane coming.
Typically it misses our area by miles and miles. I typically don’t vacate. The most recent one totally smoked my place. Thank goodness I wasn’t there. A tree fell right in the middle of my house. My living room, porch, and bedroom were all trashed. The water then poured in and created all sorts of damage. I was really upset with the amount of work given to me. Insurance only covered so much. I basically got the tree removed and the roof patch. The rest was up to me. The water damage was the most significant headache I was dealing with. The moisture was getting in the walls and causing mold. I knew the house was going to become condemned if I didn’t get on it. Rather than sink a bunch of money into a house I was never all that attached to, I decided to just sell it. I wanted to start fresh. I didn’t want to be in a hurricane area anymore. I found a cash home buyer in Jax, FL that buys homes fast for cash. It was such a relief to be done with this sticky situation. I didn’t need to worry about the water damage, clean up or repairs. They handle everything. I just needed to agree on a price and pack my bags. I left with cash in hand and was able to secure another place. It was so nice to be able to leave that mess.
