http://www.denhamspringsappraisers.com/ – Walker Louisiana Home Appraiser Photos From The Field: Unfinished High End Homes A Sign Of The Times! I was in Walker on Saturday performing home appraisals and noticed these unfinished spec homes. From the appearance of the properties, it appeared they had been vacant and unfinished for some time now. Was it that construction stopped when the builders discovered the market wasn’t paying enough to justify building higher end homes in the Walker market any longer? The reason for the question is the last photo below. This home has 2,285sf living area, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms with slab granite counters in Kitchen and Bathrooms, custom millwork, a 90 x 185 lot and sold in August 2010 for $229,000 or only $100.22/sf….and MLS doesn’t state this home was an REO, Foreclosure or a Distressed Sale.

There are Ten Year Mortgages in the 3.75% range for heaven’s sake! Yes, 3.75%!!! What are some of the issues to consider as you (and all of America) contemplates a refinance?” 1. Does it make financial sense? If you are considering a “rate/payment reduction” refinance, I typically recommend that people do one simple calculation. 2. What about a refinance to shorten the term of a mortgage? When examining the possibility of cutting years off your mortgage, you should take a good hard look at how such a move can affect your monthly cash flow. 3. What will my home appraise for? This is the biggest challenge facing most people. With so many homes underwater, there are Continue reading Baton Rouge Real Estate: To Refi Or Not To Refi. THAT Is the Question In September 2010
