NORTHWEST AUSTIN HOMES: How does hail effect the purchase or sale of your Northwest Austin Home?
On March 25th, there was a thunderstorm which included some of the biggest hail seen in Northwest Austin in about 10 years according to some residents. Hail the size of golf balls or in some areas, baseballs rained down on homes and cars throughout the NW Austin area as well as parts of Cedar Park and Round Rock. The storm left debris all over roadways and sidewalks. The area that was hit hardest was Jollyville. Some people don't even know where Jollyville is but it includes the areas of Hunters Chase, Milwood, and Anderson Mill. Many homes were damaged by the hail. Some had severe hail damage to their roof and windows. Many cars were damaged to the point of the car being "totaled". I was fortunate enough to be driving west on 620 toward the storm and pulled under one of the metal roofs at Sonic just in time. How does this hail effect a home that is currently under contract or those that are thinking of buying or selling? If you have a home with previous hail damage, what can you do? Let me tell you.

Great info about the Northwest Austin hailstorm. WE got some of it here at Mueller too. And of course not everyone replaces their roof (especially if it's new) right away. The impact carries on for years...
