Sunrise, fog rolling in about to encompass all. This is one direction.

We've been relocated by insurance co for 6 months pending some repairs to our house so living by the city. It's a nice change.

Between Xmas and NY our place flooded. Has taken them this long to start repairs.

Slightly a complete fucking pain in the ass. But .. yeah.

So we're deciding if we should just put it back the way it was (they've ripped the whole ground floor apart, taken the floor out, removed kitchen etc) or if we renovate it etc. Then we need to decide to stay or sell.

Still got a pretty awesome view, from the city to the bay and right out to the mountains.

I would say renovate then if you decide to sell , it will sell faster and for more money. I would check the 100 year flood plan for the area to see if the flood was just a one time occurrence every 100 years and if the location fits your needs.

It's definitely flood zone. Area has had two 1 in 50 year storms since 2011.

It's all a matter of price. House owes what we paid already so if we do work we need to get more cash back. Insurance co reckons 150k damage. My builder says 300.

We'll see.. got a fight coming, getting second opinions from my own engineers now.

once a flood is on the house record history, the re-sale takes a slow and sure spiral in worth.
i always say scrap just like a car salvage title situation.

Nothing like that here.

It wasn't a flood like thousands of houses damaged, it was the street drainage not able to cope with a particularly heavy downpour, a handful of houses near the intersection affected.

Water level on the street covered the footpath and ended up coming up the wall to our house; came in through the air vents in the bricks, then up through the polished wood floor and about an inch or so deep through the ground floor.

More annoying than anything else. At least we get a new floor and renovate out the ground floor. The question is exactly what to do about it all. We don't know if we want to move back in.

Maybe you should just let your mortgage company and the insurance company fight it out and just find somewhere else to live.

i'd label that as a bit of water instead of a flood.
i think of feet when i hear flood.
gotta take a pic and post a story......................BRB
