I spoke with a great customer of ours and I heard rumor many folks from out of state are not coming to the mountains of Murphy NC because of the damage caused by Hurricane Florence. While it is true many of our eastern towns and cities of North Carolina have been severely damaged, our mountain city is safe and sound. Not only that, Murphy is the perfect safe haven when retreating from natural disasters around the United States.
Hurricane Florence was rough on the Carolinas, and you can see from the map, we are over 500 miles inland. Other than rain, we received no flooding or damaging winds. Murphy was the perfect place for those forced to evacuate! In fact, many of our clients did just that. We had folks escape from Myrtle Beach, SC and many more.
In the event you’re holding back coming to Murphy, you should come! The great news is we’re safe and sound and October is one of the best months to be here: changing leaves and fall festivals are just the beginning.
Our home in the Appalachian Mountains is quite sheltered from natural disasters. The mountains break up tornadoes, hurricanes are rain by the time the reach us, flooding is rarely an issue especially for those on elevations above the river. Because of this insurance is quite low! We’re working on a transaction now on a creek and the annual flood insurance is $260 for the entire year. An average home owner’s policy can be as low as $400 for the year to $1,300 depending on “add-in” coverages. The normal range I see is $600-900 annually.
