The perfect reason to sell. Unless you are really attached to the area or the house.Ti Rider said:1. Housing prices have skyrocketed. You'd think that since the area lost a significant number of residents who will never return that housing would be cheaper. You'd be wrong. Prices have skyrocketed, from rent to home prices. My neighbor, who is now terrified of hurricanes, sold his house for $58K more than he bought it for one year ago. It's crazy, my house would be far out out of my price range if I were trying to buy it today.
