Pothole Patrol: Flint home owners worry bad roads may affect resale value

Residents drive through bar ditches to avoid potholes

Flint, TX - Gene Moody is ready to move from Flint back to Dallas due to the condition of the roads in his neighborhood.

He took over his mother’s property in the Lakeway Harbor subdivision, which she purchased in 1970, and now regrets it.

His property is a lake front home, but he says the state of the roads won’t allow him to earn more than a third of what it’s worth.

The home sits a little less than a mile and a half off of 155. It takes him almost fifteen minutes to make that short drive into his home.

Mr. Moody said he and has neighbors have spent a lot of money on auto repairs, and he ultimately doesn’t like to leave his home or invite friends over because he’s embarrassed by the terrible conditions.

The homeowner’s association in the neighborhood said they took over the community with thousands of dollars in debt, so they are unable to put the money they do have towards the road at this time.

Several neighbors also said they want to move out, but the shape of the community is affecting their resale value, making it almost impossible for them to do so at this time.
