Many of my buyers when considering a home in Destrehan often ask about youth recreation. The Destrehan Booster Club is a strong force in providing year round activities for the children of St. Charles Parish. Currently DBC is offering open registration for Baseball and Softball. The Baseball  season is very exciting, game filled activity all season long. Some travel is involved  but only locally here in the St. Charles Parish. Having such a club is great for community value. Have any questions please feel free to email. www.destreahanboosterclub.com

267 Villere Dr. Today is day 6 on my personal home listing. Well it appears that both the appraisal and home inspection are done. We are awaiting the final reports. I feel so far so good and nothing major to report.  The under contract status came just two days into the listing. Not to mention the multiple offer scenario. Home in Destrehan LA seem to be in demand. Possible reasons: Low Crime rate Country Club life style Great Public Schools Appx 45 mins to downtown New Orleans Biggest reason to a fast sell without giving away your property is listing with an agent who knows your area and price the property to sell.

It's getting to be that Time of Year   I am starting to see to see the signs of Fall and the upcoming holiday season. If you go to Home Depot, Sams or Wal-Mart just take a look around. In addition, I am seeing more homes decorated in Destrehan LA for Holloween. Close to Destrehan there is a pumpkin patch farm. For years my kid's schools have made the annual field trip to Montz Pumpkin Farm and Hayride. Located at 17834 River Road, phone 985.652.3672. Some tips for your Pumpkin lasting thru out the season. •1.     Try to pick off the vine •2.     Find a Pumpkin with as few as possible soft spots which will help with rot and mold •3.     Carving pick a large Pumpkin •4.     Don't carry your Pumpkin by the stem •5.     For Pumpkin Pie chose a small one •6.     Keep the Pumpkin in an undist...

This video was produce by our local parish government. My home is in this video. Here a great example of a community blog. The St. Charles Parish Government, in my opinion is the most progressive government in the Greater New Orleans. Before Hurricane Gustav the parish would post local information and events using www.youtube.com. Just today the video posted help calm my wife nerves on the condition of our home. I have just started to post using video and can see the advantage. Keep checking back for future updates with the use of video.

St. Charles Parish Library It has been some time since I visited a public library. One recent visit and a first to the St. Charles Parish Library surprise me with their offerings. The parish public library offers a large amount of upcoming events to include a movie night for teens and a Wii competition. In addition to a large amount of computers for public use there is a wireless zone. The wireless zone is for those who bring their own computer for connection to the internet.  Click on St. Charles Parish Library to visit their website. To cap off this exciting library experience they offer a large amount of current books to check out.

What would Happen to Your Property Value if Your local Country Club and Golf Course was to Close?Destrehan, LA. by Frank Rubiwww.7824.com If you're in the market for country club living and looking for Homes for Sale, ask if the seller belongs to their local country club. Property owners seem to always want to mention the view of the course when selling their home. My take on this matter is if you want to continue improving property value and increase your sale ability of the property considered joining your local club. Secondly, my thought is what would happen to your property value if apartments were located behind you instead of your club's golf course that you do not belong to. There are examples which are well documented where the country's club land is in great demand. Ormond Coun...
