Flood damage

Asked by Dave, Baltimore County, MD Mon Feb 9, 2009

i went to view this house and walked into a flooded home. 2 pipes where broken in the kitchen and there was about 2inchs of water on the floor,the basement had another 2 inchs. this was about 2 weeks ago, and i recently went to see it a second time. i was amazed that nothing was done at all, the carpet that was soaked is still there. the only visible sign of any repairs was the ceiling that fell in was removed. i know this is a forclosure but does it make sense to not clean this home up before mold sets in?

Jon Tucker with RE/MAX 100. Sadly homes that are in the foreclosure process often suffer damage. It may be that the bank does not have title yet and therefore does not have the right to make repairs or to stabilize the home. There is often a gap between when an owner walks away from the home, the court sale, the court ratification of sale, and the possession by the bank.

If you are interested, I would like to work with you to acquire a home in Maryland if you are not working with an agent. Thanks, Jon Tucker, 443.538.4316, TuckerRealty@comcast.net, http://www.JonTuckerHomes.com

Yes, it is an unfortunate situation for everyone involved. I lived in a region that flooded annually. A lot of my neighbors had to walk away from their homes because the damage was too severe. If you live in one of these areas, make sure that you have flood insurance because water damage is not easy to restore.
