It is important to calculate risks associated with your home search, design, and purchase. By looking up the zip code, city, and county climate assessments, it’s helpful to mitigate any risks for the future.

  • We are now 7.8 billion. In 2050, there will be 10 billion people on earth.
  • 50% of people now live in cities. In 2050, this will be 70%, meaning 7 billion of us will live in or near cities.

This means that for EVERY WEEK for the NEXT 30 YEARS, we will need to build a new city the size of Houston, TX (2 million inhabitants), to accommodate everyone.

To make smart decisions, taking a look at flood, fire, drought, and heat data in your area is key to long term viability of your investment.
