Buyer Agents: What are they and what to look out for | Ask Greg and Danielle Bunch Livingston Parish

When choosing a buyer agent to help you purchase a home, there are things to look OUT for, and things to look for. Today, we’ll talk about the former.  The job of a buyer agent encompasses many tasks, and when done correctly is not easy. Being a good buyer agent means keeping abreast of the market, constantly searching for possible homes, thoroughly researching those possibilities, evaluating them for you and with you, negotiating the contract, coordinating inspections, and much more. It is a very detailed job and a huge responsibility. Source: askgreganddanielle.com Buyer Agents: What are they and what to look out for | Ask Greg and Danielle Bunch Livingston Parish

Why Are Denham Springs Bankruptcy Home Appraisals Needed During Bankuptcy?

http://denhamspringsappraisers.com/ – Why Are Denham Springs Bankruptcy Home Appraisals Needed During Bankuptcy? The Coyle Group Philly Appraisal Blog has written an interesting article on residential bankruptcy appraisals I wanted to share with Greater Baton Rouge residents. The link to this article is: Why is an appraisal needed during Bankruptcy?   Mr. Coyle states, “During bankruptcy the debtor (the person or entity defaulting) is required by the court to demonstrate the worth of their assets. Since the debtor’s real estate holdings are, oftentimes, their largest asset a real estate appraisal is required.” If you need a local Greater Baton Rouge Home Appraisal for Bankruptcy purposes, call Accurate Valuations Group at 225-293-1500 or Click the Order An Appraisal button here or above, fill the order out and send it in and we’ll be in touch very soon.

Denham Springs Home Appraisers: Plantation Park Update 2011

http://www.denhamspringsappraisers.com/ – Denham Springs Housing Trends: Plantation Park Update 2011: Increasing, Declining or Remaining Steady? Since the Federal Tax Credit Expiration in May 2010, the number of home sales has declined considerably. And, the number of foreclosures has also increased. With fewer sales and more foreclosures, this increases the percentage of the number of sales as foreclosures. This is an on-going series into the decline of Greater Baton Rouge Home Values and why potential buyers should beware and not pay too much for “some” local overpriced listings. YES, there are overpriced listings in the Greater Baton Rouge Housing Market! Bill strongly recommends in this housing environment to obtain a Pre-Purchase Appraisal to gain ALL of the facts before making a local home purchase decision. A recent home appraisal in and analysis of Plantation Park revealed this interesting finding. From 2009 through 2011 Year-To-Date, the median sales price declined from $110,000 to $95,500 to $82,125 based on 2 sales into 2011. Again, this is only based on 2 sales in the first 4.5 months of 2011. However, in 2009 and 2010, there were 9 total sales in each year. With only two (2) sales into 2011, it appears home sales are Continue reading Denham Springs Home Appraisers: Plantation Park Update 2011
