Be VERY CAREFUL when looking over there along HWY 19. There are some good pockets for living, but there are some areas that I would avoid.

It is priced a little on he high side but for $ 32K how much can you go wrong aside from perhaps a high flood ins. bill....

And also consider that Oct. 1st rates increase for Flood Insurance, what once cost $1,900 will now run $7,000 or higher. No more subsidies for new customers...........

That is going to make a lot of homes in Hudson worthless. Only investors that rent them out and won't insure will buy these homes at those flood rates.

None of these two bedroom shoeboxes west of US19 from Holiday to Hudson will be worth even 5k once people have to pay 10 to 15k a year to insure them. Already this area has the highest Ins cost as home owners is insane west of US 19 and once flood starts to go up this are is gonna empty at a unreal pace.

And people wonder why these homes are priced from 30 to 18k. I feel sorry for the few that live in nicer homes on the gulf as it will cost over 30k a year to insure these what were 800k homes that are now selling for under $300k.

That has already happened years ago as the whole area west of US19 is loaded with low class renters and crime. I will say the crime rates in Westport have dropped a good 60% as many have left and so many homes have been sitting empty. We used to get 3 full pages a month of crime reports and now it's been a page a month.

Once flood Ins rates go up 300 to 500% there just won't be many people left.

This is the reason you rent for a while before locking yourself into home ownership, that way you'll know exactly what Hudson is all about and you can then make a more informed decision as to whether Hudson is right for you.
