Advantages of Home Ownership
 
I have worked with countless First Time Buyers over the years. I am often asked about the advantages of owning a home versus renting. Paying a mortgage and other expenses associated with buying, does not always appear to be a good deal to someone who has never owned a home. Renting usually gives the impression that it is a low stress and carefree lifestyle. There are a lot of misconceptions about home ownership. There are actually many advantages.
 
When you pay rent, the only thing you get in return is … (2 comments)

Take A Closer Look
 
When I first saw this photo it made me laugh, but then I thought about the Home Buying Process.
 
Many Buyers know exactly what they are looking for. Watching them probe through homes is similar to watching an episode of CSI. On the other hand, there are Buyers who have no idea where to begin. Here are a few helpful tips to consider while searching for your dream home.
Evaluate the home's space inside and out to determine if there is enough room for daily living, storage, and bathroom usage. If … (1 comments)

homes for sale in leesville la: BLOG 2012 - SELLER BEWARE! - 07/02/12 05:06 AM
We have all heard the saying “Buyer Beware”, but what about “Seller Beware”.  Sellers should be aware of one of the most common reasons that a sales contract falls apart. Home Repairs are a leading cause of contract "fall through".
 
In the State of Louisiana, buyers have a right to a Home Inspection. During the Home Inspection deficiencies may be discovered. At that point, the buyer has a right to "back out" of the contract or request repairs.
 

 
Sellers should not take home repairs lightly. The condition of your home plays a critical role in you getting to the … (0 comments)

The Little Things
 
Preparing your home for sale can seem like a big task, but truly, it is the little things that make the difference.
 

 
Here is a list of little things that buyers are sure to notice or maybe they won’t (think about it). If you take care of the little things, you are very likely to get your home sold.

TWO DIFFERENT ANIMALS
 

 
 
Home Inspections and Appraisals are not the same! They are two different animals. No matter how many homes I sell, I always need to make sure Buyers understand the destinction between Home Inspections and Appraisals.
 
Myth:  You can save money by skipping the Home Inspection because the Appraisal does the same thing.
 
Fact:  You could spend more money by skipping a Home Inspection. You could be facing expensive repairs that were not discovered during the Home Buying Process.
 
Home Inspectors are hired by the Buyer to take … (3 comments)
