baton rouge: Working Out Any Kinks in Your New Home in Baton Rouge - 06/17/14 12:52 PM
Imagine the first time you turn the front door key to a new Baton Rouge home—the first time you step over the threshold of the home you now own. It’s a moment to truly savor. Whether it’s a feeling of well-being—that of a major milestone successfully accomplished—or just the sheer joy of appreciating the milestone it represents, it’s a moment you’d be remembering for a very long time.
But after the joy (eventually) comes another moment: one that’s all but inevitable. It’s when you first begin to notice flaws in your new home you didn’t see before. 
Don’t worry! Most of … (2 comments)

Hurricane Preparation Part One: Have A Plan

Growing up in Louisiana, hurricanes have always been a part of life.  I vividly remember Hurricane Katrina and the devastation the storm brought to our state.  We lost power for approximately two weeks in Baton Rouge and cell phones, well they didn’t work at all.  People who needed to relocate or who were starting over were calling Baton Rouge REALTORS left and right.  Part of your plan might be to connect with a local real estate professional.  
Fast forward a couple years later and Hurricane Gustav came roaring through causing a tree to … (1 comments)

baton rouge: For the Self-Employed, Getting a Loan Takes Planning - 03/25/14 04:48 AM
You don’t have to tell anyone who is self-employed that there are extra costs that go with the benefits. In addition to the long hours and weight of responsibility that come with the job description, getting a home loan has always added special challenges. Now that we are into the new Dodd-Frank era of federal oversight, some of the changes warrant an early heads-up.
The 2010 legislation that went into effect on January 10 created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, with the function of tightening the rules lenders follow in order to discourage the issuing of mortgages that borrowers can’t be … (0 comments)

You know we love to spend time in the kitchen down here in Louisiana.  We are proud of our cajun cooking.  Keeping your Baton Rouge kitchen looking up-to-date doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive.

baton rouge: Lifestyle Changes Trigger Shift in New Home Goals - 03/14/14 10:23 PM

As you begin any search for a new home in Baton Rouge, it’s worthwhile to take a step back — to take a momentary time-out to consider widening the range of possibilities. 
For many families, the kind of home they are looking for is a foregone conclusion. Either they want a customized house in a new development like Shadowbrook Lakes, or a new home that they will build themselves in a development like Greentrails at Shenandoah, or they may be pointed toward an existing house in an established neighborhood such as Shenandoah Estates or Santa Maria. 
It’s a worthwhile exercise to look at the … (14 comments)

baton rouge: A Baton Rouge Foreclosure Is Often Less Inevitable Than You’d Think - 12/08/13 08:56 AM
Even though national foreclosure rates have continued to drop, the threat of becoming another Baton Rouge foreclosure statistic is still very real for some homeowners. It’s at least somewhat reassuring to understand that most banks don’t really want a foreclosure — so for homeowners who take an early proactive approach with their lender, losing their home does not have to be inevitable. 
Mortgage Restructuring
For anyone who has fallen behind on payments, Job One is to discuss the situation with your banker. If a mortgage restructuring is possible, you may have an opportunity to refinance at a lower rate with more … (0 comments)
