  • Thousands of houses in the Houston metro area are expected to come to market shortly as banks start foreclosure proceedings
  • Foreclosures expected to accelerate through the remainder of 2018 and 2019, with an estimated value of $10-$15 billion.
  • There were approximately 270,000 houses, condos, townhouse, commercial and industrial facilities, and other properties flooded by Hurricane Harvey in Houston and surrounding cities
    • flood reservoirs (Addicks and Barker) holding water from normal rain fall were overwhelmed
    • US Army Corps of Engineers was forced to open flood gates and drain these flood reservoirs, damaging houses that normally would not have flooded
  • In addition, due to businesses permanently shutting down and laying off their employees because of a lack of insurance coverage to restore operations, there are approximately another 200,000 houses impacted due to employees not being able to pay mortgage loans
  • Several banks (Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Citibank, Chase, and other regional/local banks) expected to soon start foreclosure actions on properties directly or indirectly impacted by Harvey flooding
    • banks provided a six-month grace payment period for owners to financially collect on insurance and start paying on mortgages
    • many homeowners cannot make payments because their dwellings were not covered by flood insurance, or government insurance will take several years to payout
