Right now in South Lake Charles, the inventory is reducing giving you the buyer less variety to choose from. It is still the most popular area to live in Lake Charles. Call me if you need help finding a home. I often know individuals who would like to sell their home but have not put it up for sale formally. You can reach me at kathy@kathyvenable.com or (337) 526-9330. Hope this helps!

Still fairly consistent with growth 1-2% per year. Median home price around $165k -- Great agent for questions would be Linda Moffet with Century 21. We are closing a new construction together on Friday for about $220k. Let me know if I can help.

Expensive. You're looking in a growth market, and much of the planned growth is to the South. I worked in Lake Charles until March of this year. As compared to Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, I found the real estate market in South Lake Charles gave me fewer options for the money, and I was looking in the $300-450k range. Although my heart belongs to Acadiana, I found work back in DFW.
Have a blessed day!

Our market in Lake Charles remains consistant. There were about 339 homes sold in the 70605 zip code in the last 12 months with the average price being $211,587. The biggest challenge seems to be convincing both the buyers and the sellers to be realistic. For the most part it is a buyers market. However, in the case of homes under $250,000 that are updated, clean and well priced...there is likely to be a rush of buyers. In those situations, buyers need to be ready to act. This includes getting a mortgage pre-approval and also making a strong 1st offer. Feel free to contact me if you would like to find out more. Nikki Hagen @ Century 21 Bessette Realty 337-884-4455
