I have heard it before that we are a tad different here in Louisiana.  Well I assure you Slidell isn't close enough to New Orleans that it could be said about us also. 

If you are looking for Homes in Slidell or any kind of real estate for sale in Slidell take a lunch break at Bayou Country for some good Cajun food.  I think you will like the quality and the prices.
Located just off interstate-10 by the Eden Isles and Oak Harbor exit.

slidell homes for sale: Bayou Country Restuarant | Slidell Homes For Sale | Real Estate For sale Slidell - 06/01/10 05:23 AM
Last week I had the pleasure of taking my family to Bayou Country in Slidell.  Located just off the interstate near the Eden Isles, Oak Harbor exit.  The cafe has Cajun cuisine that really is good and at a reasonable price.  I had the crawfish pasta and enjoyed every bite.  For someone raised in South Louisiana I recommend this cafe for any one looking for a tasty bite to eat. 
After dinner one can also browse through the inventory of Louisiana themed nick nacks and souvenirs.  Looking for any hard to find spices they should have that also.  But most of … (1 comments)

slidell homes for sale: Just Say No | Slidell Homes For Sale - 05/23/10 10:18 PM
I hate to do it but recently I had a listing appointment with a seller that was way to demanding and unrealistic.  In fact I'm not even sure where to begin.  Two or three voice mail later she finally calls me back.  We make an appointment time only to have her put it off an hour before we are supposed to meet.  No big deal happens all the time.
We drift into another week and finally meet.  She does have a really nice home.  One big problem (first problem) the house next door is for sale and the house across the street … (9 comments)

slidell homes for sale: Mortgage Delinquencies | Slidell LA Real Estate - 05/22/10 05:39 PM
I saw the news earlier this week that delinquencies on home mortgages had increased this last quarter.  One in ten (10%), that sure seems like a real problem.  I wonder how many of them are on purpose.  I don't think a lender will even talk to you about a loan modification unless you fall behind.  Thus I think some are falling behind on purpose. 
Just a thought, I wonder if any one else has this same idea.

slidell homes for sale: Home Mortgage Interest Deduction | Slidell Real Estate for Sale. - 05/15/10 02:45 AM
Is Congress really serious about eliminating the Home Mortgage Interest Deduction from personal mortgages?  Before you say they don't have a chance, remember what you thought about health care getting passed?
There seems to be some truth to the above in Washington.  Their addiction to spending is so out of control they will stop short of nothing to keep the beloved social programs going.  CNBC's released this news article just yesterday.
A quote from the article states the following, the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation estimates they LOSE roughly 600 Billion in tax revenues between 2009-2013 on home mortgage interest deductions.  … (6 comments)

slidell homes for sale: Air Conditioner Time | Slidell Real Estate for Sale - 05/03/10 07:38 AM
It's that time of year again, Air Conditioner time that is.  The mercury is now hitting the 80's consistently and the humidity is just about triple digits with all the rain.
Make sure your AC is up to snuff.  get your freon checked and have the maintenance person look for a leak if the freon is low.  I am lucky I have a very good friend who will service my AC for virtually nothing and repair any leaks also for a nice fee.  If you have a leak you need to fix it or it will just leak out and you will … (5 comments)

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.

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.

slidell homes for sale: Tax Credit Deadline Looming | Slidell Real Estate for Sale - 04/22/10 01:59 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?

slidell homes for sale: Kudos To Active Rain | Slidell Real Estate for Sale - 04/19/10 12:50 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)

slidell homes for sale: Closing Gifts | Slidell Homes for Sale - 04/17/10 10:09 AM
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.

slidell homes for sale: Big Brother | Slidell Louisiana Real Estate for Sale - 04/08/10 08:27 AM
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)

slidell homes for sale: Boiled Crawfish A Louisiana Treat | Slidell Homes for Sale - 03/22/10 06:15 AM
One thing I know about living in Louisiana we will eat just about anything.  We might be as bad as the Japanese, I think they do eat anything.  They just don't know how to spice it up so they taste good.
I entertained family and friends this Saturday at my home in Magnolia Forest in Pearl River just outside of Slidell. and we had a very good time chowing down on crawfish and lots of cold beer.  If you are ever in New Orleans you need to try these tasty critters.
Any one looking for Homes in Slidell give me a call and … (8 comments)
