Sod for Sale | Slidell Real Estate for Sale - 04/23/10 08:38 AM
Looking for a good reliable source of grass in the Slidell, Lacombe area. Look no further than Sunny Sod located on Hwy. 190 in Lacombe. They sell many types of grass that are suitable for Southeast Louisiana climate. I personally like St. Augustine at my home. It grows fast and thick to keep weeds at a minimum. Give them a call and ask for Chris. (3 comments)
Living in A Flood Zone | Slidell Homes for Sale - 04/23/10 08:30 AM
Know what flood zone you are buying or building in. At Louisiana mapping you can look at any address in Slidell or Southeast Louisiana. The money saving could be huge not to mention the psychological and sale ability of your home down the road. Don't let this happen to you.
Tax Credit Deadline Looming | Slidell Real Estate for Sale - 04/22/10 08:59 PM
The first time home buyers tax credit ends in eight days. I can't help but wonder if the housing market can grow legs or will it need another government crutch. The banks seem to be moving foreclosures to the fore front instead of stalling on them. Will contracts dry up after the end of the month? Will home prices drop further without the demand being pulled forward? I for one don't really know. I guess we will have to stay tuned?
Kudos To Active Rain | Slidell Real Estate for Sale - 04/19/10 07:50 AM
Just wanted to take the time to say thanks to Activerain and Wayne Hardin out of Seabrook Texas for the referral we closed last Thursday. Without either it would have never taken place. An active Army Sargent and his family had recently located to the area and were looking for a home. I was the third Realtor they worked with after the first two were rather disappointing. Wayne knows the family from years back and was asked to help them. He found me on activerain and the rest is history. It was a pleasure finding them a home on the Northshore (6 comments)
Closing Gifts | Slidell Homes for Sale - 04/17/10 05:09 PM
I have read on activerain about closing gifts and pondered the thought myself many times. Just today I think I came up with the perfect gift. Why not give an American Flag? After all isn't this the American dream to own your own home. Display the flag because we are the last free country in the world. We can still give a bottle of wine or a gift certificate along with the flag.

Water Heater Tax Credit | Slidell Real Estate for Sale - 04/09/10 08:35 AM
I recently installed a new water heater in my home since my old one decided to stop working. I knew about the tax credit on water heaters but not all the details. They have to meet certain energy efficiency of course. The energy factor has to be greater than 0.82 to qualify. You are eligible for 30% of the cost including installation. If you happen to replace your windows also these also can qualify for 30% tax credit. There is a limit of $1500 whether you do windows, water heater or both. Tax credits end December 31, 2010.

Big Brother | Slidell Louisiana Real Estate for Sale - 04/08/10 03:27 PM
I recently finished my taxes and found myself getting a bigger than usual refund than normal. I always mail my returns via snail mail. This year the accountant talked me into filing electronically. I agreed and said what the heck i will give it a try. I am old school and really don't trust the security of any of these websites. I found out that within three days my savings account had already been credited by the state. I then came up with a thought that concerned me quite a bit. I didn't remember giving my account number to my accountant. (1 comments)
