What You Can Do To Prepare For Hurricane Florence

Hello Fellow Real Estate Investors!

As some of you may or may not know, we have a massive hurricane headed towards the east coast ready to cause havoc. In case you aren’t updated about the current standing with Florence, here’s the details!

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 4.25.54 PM.png

As of Wednesday September 12th, 2018:

  • Florence is now categorized as a Category 3 Hurricane

  • The Radius of the hurricane has increased

  • Tropical Storm Force Winds may arrive as early as Thursday morning

  • Florence is expected to crawl near or along the coast of the Carolinas at least through Saturday.

  • This will produce catastrophic flash flooding and major river flooding.

  • Life-threatening storm surge will occur near landfall and for some time after.

  • Hurricane and storm surge warnings have been issued.

  • Florence's remnant may linger in parts of the East into early next week.

  • DC, Virginia and Maryland have all declared states of emergency

What does this mean for you & your properties?

If you have a home or properties in the Chesapeake/Hampton Roads Area in Southern Virginia, you should absolutely be taking precautions. According to the National Weather Channel:

The Chesapeake Bay area, including the cities of Norfolk and Virginia Beach, are becoming increasingly vulnerable to a hurricane strike.

Heavy rains in September 2016 brought flood worries to a new level in Virginia's Hampton Roads area on the Chesapeake Bay. Homes that had never flooded before were overrun with 2 or 3 feet of water. 

The region is more susceptible to deadly flooding because the land is sinking and the sea is rising at the highest rate on the East Coast.

According to the Center for Sea Level Rise at Old Dominion University, the region that is home to 1.7 million is the country’s second-most vulnerable to sea-level rise, topped only by New Orleans.

Scientists comparing two hurricanes that hit the region with comparable force — one unnamed storm in 1933 and Hurricane Isabel in 2003 — found that the storm surge from Isabel was about a foot higher than the 1933 hurricane, National Geographic found.

In Virginia Beach, Climate Central calculates that about 40,000 people live below the 100-year flood level of 4.8 feet above high tide. In Norfolk, about 19,000 people live below the flood level of 5.4 feet above high tide. Sea level rise is dramatically raising the odds of storm surge flooding at or above this height. 

The region is also the center of military activities on the East Coast. Each military branch has facilities in Hampton Roads, with over 100,000 military and 40,000 civilian personnel serving in the area.

CoreLogic's report found almost 390,000 of the Chesapeake Bay area's homes at risk, with a reconstruction cost value of $90.9 billion.

As of Tuesday Sept. 11th: T

he DMV area may still see a substantial impact from Florence. While the system that brought us rain this weekend may block it from moving this far north, waterfront areas such as Georgetown and Alexandria are already struggling with flooding, with areas a little further south in Virginia Areas further south in Virginia, from Roanoke to Danville to Farmville, still in line to be slammed with 10 to 15 inches of rain.

According to Storm Team4 with NBC Washington:

Coastal flood advisories are already in effect into Wednesday morning for parts of Anne Arundel, Arlington and St. Mary’s counties and Washington, D.C., Alexandria and Falls Church.

Flood warnings extend into Wednesday for Virginia counties of Loudoun and Fairfax and Maryland counties of Frederick and Montgomery.

Storm Team4 is tracking rain from Hurricane Florence beginning late Thursday or early Friday. Rains could hover for between four and six days, dropping 3 to 4 inches of rain on the area. Flooding and downed trees are the biggest concerns. Less rain could be seen to the north; to the south, Virginia is preparing for dangerous weather.

Evacuation Ordered in Virginia

President Donald Trump declared states of emergency for North and South Carolina and Virginia, opening the way for federal aid. He said the federal government is "absolutely, totally prepared" for Florence.

All three states ordered mass evacuations along the coast. Gov. Ralph Northam announced a mandatory evacuation that began Tuesday morning in Virginia for residents of low-lying coastal areas as state officials warned residents across the entire state to brace for a potential once-in-a-generation storm, catastrophic floods and days-long power outages.

Northam said the evacuation order applies to parts of the Hampton Roads area and Eastern Shore. State officials say 245,000 people live in the affected area. The evacuation order went into effect Tuesday at 8 a.m.

Northam said Virginia's evacuation zone includes the most flood-prone coastal areas. He said inland flooding could be severe and urged residents around the state to prepare for floods and loss of power.

"This is a serious storm and it's going to affect the entire state of Virginia," Northam said.

What can you do to prepare for it?

  • Sending a memo out to all residents providing them with preparation guidelines is first. 

  • Having updated communication information to stay in touch with residents is critical.

  •  contacting all of your contractors and tradesmen to be on standby is important. 

  • Having adequate supplies of plywood, fuel, flashlights, batteries, water, non-perishable food that is high in protein, tarps, ropes and bungee cords in the event that the roof is damaged. 

  • KnowYourZone Maryland.com is a website so you can identify the zone you are in geographically as to whether or not you are in a mandatory evacuation zone.

  • Being  prepared for weeks of no power. 

  • Watch the news.

  • Move all outdoor items which can become projectiles to safe areas or securing large items like tables down. 

  • Tape or plywood windows & doors.

  • Have sandbags ready for flooding. 

  • Chainsaws, generators, power cords in centralized location & easy to access. 

Remember, while these are the most up to date predictions for September 11th 2019, they are always subject to change. Stay tuned in & make sure to watch Hurricane Florence as it makes its way to the East Coast.

Until then,

Here is to the safety of you and your properties!

Hello & Happy Sunday Investors!

I'm SO upset the weekend is coming to an end. I had such a FANTASTIC day with my husband yesterday!

I am such an avid supporter of our U.S. Troops and so we went on the 14th Annuals Miles for Military to support the USO of Delaware & Operation We Care! I love giving back to my community, and love giving back to troops are not only currently serving us, but also those who are now finding themselves in a position needing support during their transition back to civilian life.

Jaw Dropping DIY's to Add to Your Property ASAP

Ever wondered how you keep your property in the back of a potential buyers mind? It's all about setting it apart from others. Check out these small things you can do to make a lasting impression- and in turn having it sell faster & for more money! 

For some of my very special investors, I'll do a walkthrough of their property to give them some last minute advice on what things they can do before putting it on the market. While this isn't the property, the advice I gave was the same - Instead of keeping the railing the one consistent wood color, adding a bit of stair to the steps & railing (but not the posts) adds a beautiful contrast to really make your staircase pop! Also, while carpet may sound like a good idea for stairs, put yourself in the buyers shoes: are you really going to vacuum them without hating yourself in the process? 

 Another thing I brought up to the investors mentioned was closing off unsightly areas with barn doors! While traditional doors make a home feel much more segregated & closed off, especially when you consider the are a door needs to open, barn doors are  hardly   in the way- but still hide unsightly areas, such as a utility closet, bedroom closet, or laundry area. Not only are these practical for keeping a property open, but they can be another tool to set your property apart from others. This barn door has a touch of light blue, which would be a central part of this homes color scheme. Another thing you can do appeal to a broader audience is use the same stain from the stairs to tie into a base, neutral color palette.

 Have you ever watched an episode of Fixer Upper? If so, you know Joanna Gaines signature design element of a home is an accent wall- specifically shiplap. Accent walls are absolutely trending lately, and are an element you can add to your property to set it apart. This accent wall is essentially stick-on paneling, so even if you aren't that crafty, you can do this yourself!

 Lastly, we all know white is a color you can add to your home to signify cleanliness. While it is incredibly hard to keep it looking pure, when you are just flipping a property it's the impression that counts! Just like accent walls & barn doors, white brick is definitely trending right now. Giving a modern touch to a traditional styled home gives a potential buyer all the balance they need
