I know today is not going to be any different.

Looking over the Purchase Agreement
 
Often times in the excitement of Selling a Metairie Home details maybe missed or overlooked in a contract. The Buyer/Seller and the Realtor should always double check the details of any contract.
The Seller should disclose any known defects in the property disclosure. Property disclosures are require for all Residential property sold in Louisiana. IF known defects are disclose this could possible decrease the chance of legal action in the future.
 
Buyers should have the terms spelled out in writing. This is to include finance and move in dates. Most fixed … (2 comments)

The Buyer's Agent must not be aware of the TIFF that goes into effect on August 1st. My understanding of the new Regulation is that the … (5 comments)

My Idea of a Relaxing Photo.
I love to see photos of Flowers. I also have a thing for Water and Water Falls. This Water Fall was from a recent trip to Walt Disney World Animal Kingdom.
