homes for sale in alexandria louisiana: Getting Your Alexandria La Home Ready for Market - 01/08/13 01:12 PM
Getting Your Alexandria La Home Ready for Market--

Thinking of selling your Alexandria La home? In order to fetch top dollar invest some time getting your proverbial house in order.
1) Start with the outside-- These days most buyers will find your home online. From here local buyers will often drive by your property. If the curb appeal is "appalling" expect most buyers to mark your home off their list.
2) Clean Like The In-Laws Are Coming-- Mop, dust, vacuum, de-clutter, throw away. Your home should resemble something you would see on HGTV, not Sanford & Son.
3) Take Care … (5 comments)

homes for sale in alexandria louisiana: Before You Rent Your Lovely Home... - 05/01/12 07:49 PM

  In theory the plan sounds like a winner. Can't get the price you want for your home? Why not rent the property for a year or two? Make enough money to pay the mortgage, start a savings account, and have a enough left over each month to cook the family carne asada. Let's examine why renting may not be a viable alternative.
1) Rental rates are governed by the same market conditions as selling-- Folks will only pay what the market will support. "We need enough for..." has nothing to do with what real people will pay.
2) Have … (13 comments)

homes for sale in alexandria louisiana: Of Course The Seller Can Stay For The Showing! - 04/28/12 07:52 AM

 A seller remaining at home during a showing is about as welcome as a great white shark at the local beach. Both have the potential to end terribly and neither end in a contract.
 This week I showed two homes where the owner remained. In the first case the owner was recovering from surgery. Even so, she stepped outside and did nothing to get in our way. That home is now under contract and we should close prior to Memorial Day...
For some reason at the other property the gentleman was home in the middle of the day. I got … (59 comments)

homes for sale in alexandria louisiana: The House is Vacant, Why Can't You Just Give Me The Lockbox Code? - 04/25/12 08:22 PM

 With a foreclosure specialist on staff, my company gets daily calls from would-be buyers. Thanks to our internet advertising, many of these prospects will call from the front yard wanting to get inside. Let's examine why I can't give you the lock box code over the phone...
1) You may not really be a buyer-- Like a front porch light, foreclosures attract all sorts of critters. Some are legitimate buyers, others are looking for plunder. With only a cell phone call I can't determine which category you belong.
2) There may be safety concerns-- Think about it, if the owner … (50 comments)

homes for sale in alexandria louisiana: My House Is Under Contract, When Should I Start Packing? - 02/20/12 01:43 PM

 Thanks to your realistic pricing from the beginning, you now have an acceptable offer on the table. Before I go any further, let me offer my congratulations! Getting a workable offer can be tough, but you did it! Now, about those boxes...
 In Louisiana occupancy is assumed to be at closing. As such, the seller needs to be COMPLETELY out of the home AT CLOSING. Some markets are different, but in my fair state this is the case. The good news is you have a deadline, which is great for motivating action. My clients find it helpful to conceptualize the … (7 comments)
