This Sulphur LA Home SOLD for $83,500 This Sulphur LA home for sale was a Fannie Mae Foreclosure.  The Contract was written in February and we just closed on May 16th!  Why do foreclosures take so long to close and what can Buyers expect? When you are buying a foreclosure the human touch is basically removed from the process. You are dealing with a lending machine (the bank) Your timelines mean very little to the bank. Their timelines mean everything. You could sit and wait for a response from the bank forever, but once they respond then you are on the clock to perform. When the Buyer makes an offer the Bank will require the Buyer to complete their own 30 page Bank Addendum.  Buyers need to be patient and not be in a hurry to close.  The bank will be using their own Title company and p...

There are not many homes for sale under $100,000 in Southwest Louisiana that are move in ready.  Buyers may become dismayed when viewing 30 year old homes.  Most buyer's who are only approved up to $100,000 will not have money saved to plan a remodel or put $30,000 worth of updates into a home. This  3 bedroom 2 bath Sulphur home recently closed at $83,500 and was a foreclosure.  Homes in the neighborhood generally sell on average for $112,000. Listed below is a sampling of what you will come across in older homes--it may remind you of your childhood growing up! SWAG LIGHTING AND WALLPAPER POPCORN BLOWN CEILINGS AND GOLD FIXTURES GOLD OR AVOCADO SINKS AND TUBS DARK CABINETS AND DATED APPLIANCES There will  also be wood trim, wallpaper and lots of it, paneling which is painted if you are...

  ANOTHER SULPHUR LA HOME SOLD It is always rewarding to work with first time home buyers who are purchasing their first home and beginning to raise a family.  2345 E. Burton in Sulphur, LA just closed today courtesy of Marilyn Boudreaux, Century 21 Mike D Bono & Co in Lake Charles, LA.   The buyer’s patiently awaited appraisal repair issues which were required by the lender in order to close on the home.   During inspection it was discovered that the exterior of the house had “peeling paint” and some missing flooring among other issues.  Guess what came up again  in the appraisal......PEELING PAINT!   Two extensions were necessary while the Buyer’s waited for three weeks for the Seller to make the repairs so the Lender could request  the appraisal re-inspection necessary to confirm th...

 I just closed on this Sulphur, LA home located at 505 W. Parish Road.  The exciting thing about this closing is:  This was a Referral Client This was a dream come true for first time home buyers!   Last November I began to work with first time home buyers who needed to find a large home to raise their family of 5 children.  This nice young couple are family members of a Realtor who lives in San Antonio, TX.  When you work in real estate and the time arises for you to purchase your own home in a new location or assist a family member, you want that same attention to detail that you provide you provide your own clients with.  In other words, the bar is raised high!  I know when my son was purchasing a home in Lafayette, LA I was very particular with my referral and who I trusted!  Realt...

ProPaint in Sulphur, Louisiana does a wide varity of body work and paint jobs. I love the work that they have done on motorcycles and vehicles.  I met the Thibodeaux family years ago when they owned Rufus Auto.  They did all of my mechanical work.  Now the father owns Harvey's Wrecker and he tows my vehicles when I need to get it to a mechanic.  I look forward to picking up my vehicles because it gives me an excuse to go into ProPaint and see their latest works.      I have watched ProPaint and Harvey's Wrecker grow from a small mechanic business to two separate large and very successful businesses.  They have a reputation for doing excellent and honest quality work.  I would recommend ProPaint and Harvey's Wrecker to everyone. If you need a tow, give Harvey's Wrecker a call.  If you ne...

After searching and viewing many homes for sale, home buyers eventually will fall in love with that one house that meets all their needs.   When home buyers find that special home they want to purchase, they begin to start thinking of  furniture placement and decor that will  satisfy their own personal tastes. After the 30-45 day process of buying a new home moves toward closing, excitement builds and its a great day when the buyers get the keys to their new home and start a new chapter in their lives. I love it when my clients  keep in touch with me after the closing and tell me about improvements they have made to their new home or invite me to come take a look.    As a Realtor, it is rewarding to experience the joy of those special moments!  Today one of my buyer's sent me this email...
