Not surprisingly, Hurricane Harvey’s torrential rains and fast-rising floodwaters dealt a heavy blow to a real estate market that was on track to set new records, according to August data from the Houston Association of Realtors (HAR).

“Home sales were humming throughout the first three weeks of August, but the moment Harvey struck the region, everything came to a screeching halt,” said HAR chair Cindy Hamann.
