Its been hard going thru so many fires here in Southern California and especially the Thomas Fire. What started up in the foothills above Santa Paula quickly grew to one of the largest fires here and over 1,000 homes were lost. Most people if they had the right insurance are going to rebuild but my thinking is, how is that going to affect current sales?
Home prices are out of reach for many as it is and for those that lost their homes and didn't have fire insurance with enough coverage, where will they go? Ventura county, being right next to the ocean, who would want to move somewhere else? Personally, being close to the beach and the lifestyle that comes with it, I would fight to stay if I could.
So many heartbreaking stories, its hard to phatom. My heart goes out to everyone that was affected by the Thomas Fire. Hopefully everyone will come out okay.
