Harvey creates an economic mess as Texas toll still being tallied

August 2017 | San Antonio Express News

 

The rain has not relented, and the ultimate, enormous damage from Hurricane Harvey — and its impact on to the Texas economy — won’t be known for months after the water drains away.

 

The storm came ashore near Rockport on Friday night as a Category 4 hurricane before wreaking havoc across hundreds of miles of the Texas Gulf Coast. It continues to dump rain across Houston, and Gov. Greg Abbott called out the entire Texas National Guard on Monday to help with rescue efforts there as much of the metropolitan area turned into a lake.

 

The human and economic toll is still unfolding.

 

What’s clear is that the economic impact is large — spiraling out across Texas and the U.S., as the nation’s fourth-largest city remains at an economic standstill and much of the nation’s refining capacity goes offline. The impacts are small and personal, too, as people tally up their losses from flooded and wrecked homes, cars and other property.

 

At Texas A&M University’s Real Estate Center, economist Jim Gaines is already getting calls and emails from people who want to know how the flooding affects their home’s value.

 

“I don’t know what to tell them,” Gaines said.

 

Neither does he know yet how to estimate the overall damage to property or the effects on the state’s $1.6 trillion economy — the second-largest in the U.S. after California.

 

“I have no earthly idea,” Gaines said. “It’s going to be significant in terms of dollars and in terms of the impact on people. It’s in the billions. The question is, is it hundreds of billions?”

 

It will likely affect the South Texas economy for months. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, predicted that the region’s economic output will be cut by about 1 percent, or $7 billion to $8 billion. It will recover, he said,
helped by money from insurance payments and government aid to rebuild.

 

Business activity is halted in Houston for at least several more days, and much of Harris County’s housing stock is flooded. Everything from business deals to home sales has been halted and will be suspended while people go into
damage-assessment and repair mode, Gaines said. From Port Aransas to Houston, communities will face a serious housing shortage as many homes and apartments will be uninhabitable until rebuilt or repaired.
“I have no idea if I’m talking tens of thousands or what that are no longer marketable,” Gaines said.

 

“The immediate thing is that all the real estate transactions in the pipeline or nearly in the pipeline are off the table,” Gaines said. “You can’t get a property inspector out to look at it because they’re going to be swamped. You can’t get an insurance adjustor out. They’re going to be swamped. It will take weeks, maybe a month or two, to get any semblance of organized response. It’s going to be people doing the best they can, but they’re going to be overwhelmed.”

 

Although business losses are centered on the coast and the Houston area, “the rest of Texas isn’t off the hook, specifically San Antonio,” warned Victor Lai, owner of a San Antonio business brokerage, Murphy Business.

 

Small companies have trouble recovering from repair costs and lost revenue while closed for repairs, and clients may move to other companies before a damaged firm can reopen, Lai said.

 

“Nearly 40 percent of small businesses don’t survive natural disasters of this magnitude,” he said.

 

“San Antonio’s economy is closely tied to Houston’s, and while Houston’s business climate was riding an upswing ahead of the storm, that may now be put on hold as funds are shifted toward cleanup, slowing down business buying and selling,” Lai added. “However, opportunities do present themselves for wellfunded businesses to buy up struggling ones to increase their market share, or to open up shops in areas where they had no presence previously.”

 

The economic impact of Hurricane Harvey won’t be enough of a shock to cause a regional recession, said Keith Phillips, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas senior economist in the San Antonio branch office.

 

“There will be a lot of personal impact on people’s lives. There will be a lot of rebuilding activity. Houston is an important part of the state, but it’s a big state,” Phillips said Monday as he and other Dallas Fed economists worked to prepare a report on Harvey for the media and to brief Dallas Fed CEO and President Robert Kaplan.

 

“With all the houses that have been wiped out, if they are rebuilt, it will look like there’s a bounce back, but that doesn’t account for the loss of capital,” Phillips said.

 

“There will be a slowdown. People can’t go to work, so that output will be lost,” Phillips said. “People who don’t have insurance will have to rely on savings, or federal or state help. We don’t know what that’s going to be like. There’s a lot of uncertainty right now. We are looking at the broader (gross domestic product) in Houston, the maximum output per day. Some losses will be temporary. Some will be permanent. If people are not shopping, they may make up for it later to replace lost things.”

 

According to the National Flood Insurance Program, only 15 percent of Harris County houses have flood insurance. In Nueces County, which includes Corpus Christi, 20 percent of the houses have flood insurance.

 

For the first month, retail jobs likely will go down in Texas, especially in the storm-damaged areas, and construction jobs will rise. “Construction will dominate,” Phillips said.

 

The energy industry, which is centered in Houston, will also have to go into recovery mode, Gaines said.

 

Roughly 2.2 million barrels per day of Texas refining capacity remained down, according to S&P Global Platts. The ports in Houston and Corpus Christi were closed.

 

“The question is, how fast does it come back and does it come back completely? It probably will,” Gaines said. “I’m guessing in a matter of months they’ll be back up and running in whatever capacity they want to. They’ve got the money and the know-how. It’s too important. There’s too many dollars involved.”

The office will support entrepreneurs with professional services to aid in the sale of their businesses, including valuations and assistance in finding financing for qualified buyers.

 

“Earning our clients’ trust is our number one priority,” said Spann, who specialized in assisting with M&A and valuations as vice president at A.G. Edwards & Sons. “I think my favorite part of the work we do is assisting business owners with some of life’s most important decisions and to help them close on a deal they can feel good about.”

 

Prior to his work with MB&FC, Spann served as CEO at several building service and staffing companies in addition to co-founding Mount Carmel Communities, a local nursing home development and management company. Before opening the St. Louis Murphy Business office, Niemann, with his background rooted in accounting and finance, was a CFO at several insurance companies and a manufacturing company. Together, the two are ready to bring a wide range of business brokerage services to the area.

 

“I’ve been on both sides of the negotiation table,” said Niemann, who has advised multiple acquisitions prior to his work with MB&FC. “Owning a commercial window cleaning company has given me a unique perspective to bring to my clients. Buying or selling a business can be an emotional process, and Andrew and I look forward to making it as easy as possible for buyers and sellers in the region.”

 

Spann and Niemann see an increase in demand for business brokerage services in today’s marketplace. Over the past 12 months, they have seen a national and local increase in the number and the price of businesses sold and the industry expects the upward trend to continue through 2017.

Know the Road to Business Ownership Before Starting Out

Inside Business | By Frank Chebalo

 

Making the transition to business ownership can be daunting, especially if your options are unclear.

 

Think of business ownership as a destination on a map with multiple routes ultimately leading to the same end location, but all differing in accessibility, arrival time, cost and other factors.

 

Below are several pathways for aspiring entrepreneurs to consider before embarking on their journeys.

 

Start your own

 

Starting one from scratch is typically the first – or only – option people picture when they think of business ownership. Starting your own business has a variety of benefits – including having the ability to oversee all decisions made and steer the company’s direction.

 

It’s no question the freedom and responsibility of launching a business is attractive. However, it’s also important to be mindful of the statistics when it comes to launching a startup. With only a 15 percent success rate, risk assessment is necessary, but if done correctly, and with proper assistance, starting a business has the potential to be a rewarding route.

 

Buy into a franchise

 

Researching alternative options is a necessary step in the decision-making process, and if the risk of starting your own business seems too high, franchising is worth looking into. On this path, you buy into a model so it’s essential to do your due diligence to find a reliable and supportive franchiser.

 

When franchising with a reputable brand, the success rate increases to 90 percent. A credible model can offer systems and processes to help with the opening of a business including marketing programs, training, staffing assistance.

 

While franchising is sometimes criticized for lack of freedom or creative control, many in favor of franchising argue that the success rate is reason alone to buy into a model within an industry that interests you and that as an owner, you still have control over many aspects of your business.

 

Acquire a business

 

Buying a company is another option to consider. If inexperienced, you may want to consult a business broker who can provide knowledgeable insight on price values for the current market and ultimately weed out the opportunities that aren’t worth investing in.

 

Existing businesses already have an established track record of cash flow, as well as marketing plans and procedures that are in place. Oftentimes, these businesses have an established clientele and loyal employees as well, but can come at a greater cost to the buyer.
