homes for sale in monroe la: Looking for a FORECLOSURE in Monroe or West Monroe? - 06/16/10 02:56 AM
Top 3 Myths About Foreclosures
With all the talk about foreclosed homes and short sales on the market, it is tempting to believe all the pros and cons you hear about buying a bank-owned property.
1.  Foreclosures sell at massive discounts, compared to other homes.Reality check: while foreclosures might be discounted massively from what the former owner paid or owed, their discounts are much more modest when compared to their value on today's market and the prices of similar homes.
2.  When you buy a foreclosure, you should lowball the bank - they are desperate to get these homes off their … (0 comments)

homes for sale in monroe la: SELLERS: Do you really want to sell? - 05/20/10 03:30 AM
Over the past weekend, I was working with a nice family moving to Monroe from the Dallas area. They had an idea of where they wanted to live, but we tried to cover all the bases and view homes in Monroe, West Monroe and Calhoun. You see, they have a special request. Their son is a blossoming GOLFER! They really want to live on or near a golf course so it will be very easy for son (and DAD) to get to the links.

Here's the problem: we encountered several homeowners in golf communities who could not be bothered with allowing their … (1 comments)

 1.   You are 25 years old. In 15 years, you will be 40 years old. Wouldn't you like to have this house paid off and be only 40 years old?
2.   The price of buying a FIXER is you have to LIVE in a fixer, and be chained to it on weekends (when you should be out having fun) You are only young once.

homes for sale in monroe la: Looking for a house online? BEWARE of scams! - 03/13/10 04:49 AM
Another round of Craigslist scammers copying local real estate listings and offering them for rent or sale at outrageously low prices. The sad part is that there are people falling for "wire me the deposit and I'll send you the keys" or they wouldn't keep doing it.
•(1)    Victims need to report the scam to their local police department in the town where the rental is located and the state police. This is a crime, so it should be reported.
•(2)    Report this to the Internet Fraud Center at the FBI: http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx
