Almost all the sellers I meet these days want to know if they should wait until the spring to list their home. I tell them all the same thing: our inventory is low right now therefore there is less competition, and we have 473 homes pending in the area, including 305 in Lafayette parish alone. Yo...
Yes, it is a real car up in the tree. This car has been there for as long as I can remember (15+years). My husband says that there used to be another car in that tree when he was a child. Why they keep putting cars in the tree, I'm not sure. To make people talk, perhaps? I was tempted to say "onl...

The Internet is the big winner again (40%) while print advertising keeps losing ground (2%). If you are a seller, you need to ma...
In the past few weeks, I've talked to several sellers who said that they are waiting to put their home on the market because more homes sell in the spring than in the winter. That is true. However, what most do not consider is that there are also more homes hitting the market in the spring, which...
The year 2011 is history and today begins 2012. The weather is beautiful here although a bit windy. Like most, I've been thinking about personal goals and professional ones today and what I would like to achieve this year. Today, I'm also grateful for this past year and want to extend my thanks o...
