The Transnation Title team has been thinking a lot about the safety and futureproofing of our homes and communities. Over the past few years, this topic has become increasingly important. In 2023 alone, over 3 million Americans have faced upheaval from natural disasters. That’s staggering—and a clear sign these events are a growing concern.

Now, you might be wondering, “How does this affect me?” or “What can I do to protect my home?” 

We’re glad you asked! Those in the know – architects, planners, and developers – have begun to shift their focus toward building properties able to withstand these challenging conditions. They’re discussing resilience and sustainability, and we think it’s a conversation we all should participate in.

Future-proof homes will likely soon feature necessities like backup generators, sump pumps and solar panels. These will be the new standard in home safety, ensuring preparation for today and tomorrow. 

But what if your home isn’t a shiny new build? Not to worry! You can still take some practical steps to protect your property. Simple things like:

  • Reinforcing doors and windows
  • Pruning those big old trees (they might look friendly but can cause a headache during storms)
  • Insulating your pipes to prevent them from freezing in colder climates.

At Transnation Title, we understand the importance of securing your home – it’s where your heart is, after all. Our dedicated team is here to ensure that your property’s title is free and clear and that your transactions are smooth and headache-free. Make sure to contact us for your next transaction. 

Stay safe and sound, and remember – the future is what we make of it, one home at a time!
