The recent bombardment of heavy rain here in Charleston has, as you might expect, drastically affected our real estate market here. However, the impact of the floods varies depending on the neighborhood. For instance, Mount Pleasant was hardly affected, while other areas in the Tri-County were devastated.

Most of this month, the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors is really focusing on relief for people and families affected by the flooding we've seen. 
In fact, so far this month we have contributed over $25,000 to various organizations, which include the Realtor Relief Fund, The American Red Cross, and Salvation Army. Most of this money ends up in the hands of families who need the help. Additionally, there are currently some closed-door talks happening with FEMA, which should result in more relief for people who need it.
Here at Dave Friedman Real Estate, we have made personal contributions to various other organizations as well. If you or someone you know needs help as a result of the rough weather we've had, please don't hesitate to reach to me via phone or email. I would love to put you in touch with some resources that will be able to give you immediate help.


Most people are surprised that the Low Country wasn't as affected as some places in the middle of the state, like Columbia, which was hit hard. We've seen some flooding here, which has resulted in relocation for some families, but overall the impact has not been as severe as many other places.
Moving forward, it's crucial that you talk to your Realtor about FEMA flood zones and whether your home or the home you're interested in buying is at risk.
If you are in need of immediate relief right now, again, don't hesitate to reach out to me. I can put you in touch with the very best resources to help you recover and keep your family safe. You can reach FEMA (Disaster Relief) at 1-800-627-3362 or give me a call at (843) 795-7950 for immediate assistance.
Thanks, and stay safe!
