Home Values Increase Less in Areas with Natural Disasters

natural disastersNatural disasters reduce home valuations. Homes in disaster-prone areas face decreasing values due to higher of home insurance. Not to mention flood insurance.

To make matters worse, natural disasters are becoming more common and more severe.

These risks include hurricanes, floods, wildfires, earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides, and tornadoes.

Predictions are the severity and frequency of such risks will increase in the future.

Homeowners affected by natural disasters are moving to new areas altogether. indicates 78% of homebuyers consider natural disasters when buying a home

To no one’s surprise, natural disasters effect a large portion of the United States.

The risk is highest along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. In that area, more than 90% of properties in counties are at risk of a dramatic change in insurance coverage.

In California, 3 million homes are at risk.

Disaster proofing a home will reduce some of these risks. But at what cost?

And even if a home is “disaster proofed” will the cost of home insurance or flood insurance be prohibitive to home ownership?

Where Will Your Next Home Be?

Now where can one find a great climate, lots of outdoor activities and NO natural disasters? Consider Arizona. Better yet, make it Tucson Arizona.

Arizona has a low risk for natural disasters. Low but not zero when it comes to wildfires.

They occur every year. But in the more remote areas of northern Arizona. Although there are other pros and cons about living in Arizna, natural disasters should not be one of them.
