America's Last-Ditch Climate Strategy of Retreat Isn't Going So Well

Flooding of at least 10 percent of a land area, on average, twice a month. By the end of the century, that category will grow to include more than half of the communities along the Eastern Seaboard and Gulf Coast—and that’s if the rate of climate change doesn’t accelerate. In their less guarded moments, officials in charge of this country’s disaster programs have begun to acknowledge the previously unthinkable: Sometimes the only effective way to protect people from climate change is to give up. Let nature reclaim the land and move a neighborhood out of harm’s way while it still is one.

But even when all the most obvious ingredients are in place—from federal money and local buy-in to cheap, dry land right next door—moving is hard. Sidney has yet to remove more than a few dozen homes from the flood plain or break ground on land away from the river. Its failure so far illustrates how unprepared the U.S.

Green Brick Partners, Inc. Expands Into Florida Through Acquisition of GHO Homes

Michael Kahn, Principal of Michael P Kahn Associates LLC, advised GHO Homes on the transaction. “For almost 35 years, GHO primarily focused on the retirement market so this new investment will nicely diversify Green Brick’s product and geographic offering while positioning the company for faster growth. In the 30 years I have been advising builders, this has been one of the most seamless transactions we have done because of the fit, skills, and principal-based cultures of the seller and purchaser,” noted Kahn.

Green Brick Partners has purchased all of the assets of GHO Homes and affiliates and acquired an 80% controlling ownership of GHO Homes through an investment in a newly formed entity, GRBK GHO Homes, LLC. Bill Handler will continue serving as President and will be a 20% partner in GRBK GHO Homes.

“With this strategic acquisition, Green Brick has expanded into the Florida markets with one of the best brands on Florida’s east coast,” said Jim Brickman, CEO of Green Brick Partners. “GHO and Bill Handler have a customer-first culture, an exceptional management team, and a great lot position. Our future plans include expanding GHO’s experience in age-targeted homes not only in Florida but with our other builders and markets. We believe that this transaction will be immediately accretive to earnings per share.”

What rights do I have as the owner of a condominium?

I am financially struggling; bought a condo with my boyfriend a few years ago, and the Home Owners Association is a nightmare.

They have decided to spray for termites. We are going through some major financial difficulties right now.


I would check your bylaws. An association cannot evict you because you own your property. The only thing they could do is fine you.
