pineville louisiana: What the Heck!!! A case of Legal Paper is 65 Bucks $$$$ - 09/13/12 07:23 AM
What the Heck!!! A case of Legal Paper is $65 Bucks $$$$

How is that possible??

That's like $1.20 per pound... and you don't even get to digest it (well.....not normally)!

So with this new found knowledge from my trip to Office Depot last night....I am now committed more than ever to become Paper~Less.....

I already have cut down on my paper consumption dramatically over the past year/year and a half. I keep electronic folders for all of my listings. I have cut out printing inspection reports, home warranty confirmations, and other related items to our contracts. … (3 comments)

pineville louisiana: Stage with Flowers in the Fall !!! Dress up that CuRb Appeal !! - 09/13/12 02:11 AM
Tis the time of year when the landscaping seems to get a little blah.....
But, we still need to get those homes that are listed SOLD! So here are some suggestions on Fall Flowers to add a little curb appeal to that fading landscape.
 One of the number 1 choice of gardeners is the Chrysanthemum or "Mum". They have wonderful bright colors, come in different sizes and always seem to mix well with other plants you have. Another plus is they are easy to find and they also do very well in hanging pots as well!

pineville louisiana: Paige Walker Real Estate update - FHA monthly increase goes in effect APRIL 18, 2011 - 02/15/11 01:27 PM

All loans closing after April 18, 2011 will see a monthly increase on the Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP) of around $30 on average.
This increase which was detailed in the President's 2010 budget is one of the ways the Government is trying to strengthen the agency's capital reserves.
MIP is insurance that the Borrower pays for each month to offset the risk for HUD in case the Borrower defaults on the loan.
I found it interesting that a government official had stated that"This marginal increase is affordable for almost all home-buyers who would qualify for … (0 comments)

pineville louisiana: What's in a Short Sale Packet? - 07/28/10 02:53 PM
We hear more and more in the news everyday about Short Sales. What is this phenomenon?
A short sale usually takes places when you are struggling to pay your mortgage and you discover (usually when speaking with an agent about selling the home) that your home is worth LESS than what you OWE on it. The 'short sale' takes place when the mortgage company agrees to accept less than what is owed on the mortgage. Of course you have to have a buyer with a buy/sell agreement to start the process!
If you are thinking you might be in a short sale … (1 comments)

pineville louisiana: Buying a house now could be the best hedge against inflation …EVER! - 07/26/10 10:28 AM
ATTENTION CENTRAL LOUISIANA!!!  Check out this post from Richard Weisser in Georgia.
I have been saying it is a great time to buy a home with interest rates in the 4% range on a 30 yr fixed, now it seems as those most economists agree with me!
Now is the time!!
Paige Walker, Century 21 Millennium, Pineville, Louisiana

Most economists agree that recent rashes of government spending will ultimately lead to significant inflation. The constant infusion of cash that is intended as a short-term solution will eventually have a long-term effect on the value of a dollar.

pineville louisiana: What is that black stuff on the roof??? Could be black algae! - 07/25/10 03:53 PM
We aren't N. Virginia, however, we still have those darn black stains on our roofs! Ever wonder what it is?
Read this great post from a professional home inspector - Jay Markanich!
- Paige Walker, Century 21 Millennium, Pineville, Louisiana

Prevalent in Northern Virginia, and to the south, is a roof staining problem called "black algae."  It looks like a dripping, running black stain, usually on a shaded roof, or on the side facing away from direct sunlight.  Incorrectly called mildew and fungus, the staining is an algae, typically Gloeocapsa magma.  I see it all the time.

pineville louisiana: Restaurant Spotlight in Alexandria, LA: Tunk's Cypress Inn - 06/07/10 09:33 AM
One of the many things Louisiana is known for is food.  The food in Louisiana is unlike any other food you will taste elsewhere.  It's a blend of many cultures and many ages past all come together.  Because of this, when out-of-towners come through their first question is usually "Where should I eat?". 


There are so many great places to eat in the area but this week I wanted to throw the spotlight on one of my favorites: Tunk's Cypress Inn.  If you're in the mood for authentic Louisiana food and in the Alexandria area this is the … (3 comments)
