   I get calls on a daily basis from home buyers inquiring about Lake Charles Homes for Sale.  Many times they want more information about a Lake Charles Home for Sale and will inquire about a viewing the home they have seen online .  Sometimes the buyer is disappointed to learn that the home is "under contract" or "sold". There are many websites available for Lake Charles Home Buyers to search listings and the most popular reference I hear most is Zillow.  Buyers are frustrated and don't understand why a house they see listed for sale on Zillow is no longer for sale.  I must then explain that Zillow does not update their site like our local Southwest Louisiana Board of Realtors listing service.   Home buyers may call to inquire about a home that still shows for sale on a real estate si...

Sellers purchased this Lake Charles property last summer as an investment and turned that investment into a nice profit on this successful flip!  4809 Ponderosa sold for $163,000 and was under contract within 45 days.  The seller applied for a Rehab loan and after paying a few low notes on that 203k loan  left the closing table with $23,000 in his pocket. Lake Charles Investors are looking for properties that are in great locations that with a little bit of TLC and modern updating are what the Lake Charles home buyers are looking for.   Flipping isn't all that easy as the TLC TV show makes it to be.  There must be a profit margin and quick turn time.  Many investors don't realize there could be bidding wars on properties that can be an easy fixer upper for them.  You may have to raise t...

It's that time of year when Lake Charles Real Estate heats up along with the temperatures outside! New residents relocating to Lake Charles Louisiana want to move their family during the summer months and be settled by the time the school year begins again in late August. Right now, the inventory of Lake Charles homes for sale is lower than usual and with the expected boom of industry expansion on the horizon for Southwest Louisiana, many buyers are already being transferred to Lake Charles!  We are seeing the Lake Charles Real Estate market quickly turn to a Seller's market due to supply and demand. Combine the low inventory with the usual busy summer selling months and home buyers out in full force and the results are  Lake Charles LA homes going under contract quickly! There is a hig...

LAKE CHARLES HOME BUYERS CHOOSE YOUR LOAN SOURCE CAREFULLY Getting to the closing table" is really a major achievement these days.  Once a Lake Charles Home Buyer begins a home search, the Buyer usually becomes pre-approved with a local Lake Charles  loan officer.  First time home buyers may decide to just to to their local bank, after all that is who knows all about your money, right???    Local banks may or may not always be the best bet for the Lake Charles home buyer.  It will depend on the type of loan and financing and every buyer's situation will be different.  I have been keeping track of a pattern of closings with local banks vs. local Lake Charles mortgage companies and guess who is winning so far??   The Lake Charles Mortgage companies!

Calcasieu River in Sulphur LA   The fruits of SEO is being found on Google by Buyers and  Sellers.  Its what we all strive for.   Sometimes leads and calls come from the most unexpected sources.  I received a call from a property owner in California who wanted a value for a home on the river in Sulphur LA.  Guess that Google search worked!! Waterfront property here in Southwest Louisiana is quite expensive and homes built along the river and lakes sell for a pretty penny.  I was not familiar with the address the owner gave me and I am up to date on all the waterfront property locations in Calcasieu Parish.  I agreed to go view the property and obtained the contact information for the tenant in the home to access the property.  After I spoke with the tenant and mentioned I would be view...
