Thanks for contacting Bolton Realty concerning the waterfront property at 423 Pardee Road, Campti, LA. As for property taxes, currently the annual property tax for this property is ap $1048. The property does not currently have homestead exemption. Assuming that the assessment remains the same, a buyer that would occupy the home as primary residence can sign up for homestead exemption on the first $75,000 of assessed value. This typically saves ap $650 per year on property taxes but I can obtain a more accurate estimate of taxes with a suggested sales price. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information and/or a showing. Thanks,

The house doen the road just might be outside the city limits. There are several communities in Louisiana that are scheduled to be excluded from the program due to increased population. Ask your loan officer to verify the address. If its eligible go for it... more
Inquiries do not impact your scores that drastically. The likely reason your scores are so low is because your young with a limited credit history, and that credit history happens to include missed/late payments.
A few missed payment are going to hurt your scores much more than someone who is older with a longer credit history.
Time is likely the best thing to increase your credit score. Focus diligently on making sure you don't have ANY late or missed payments. At your age a single mis-step can set you back to square one.
Lenders will likely want to see credit scores above 640 with no lates in the most recent 12-24 months.
Hope this helps!... more
It all depends...with condition and location being the biggest factors. Throwing out a number in River RIdge would be a dangerous proposition and do you no good. Get a Realtor that understands the River Ridge area and can give you ACTUAL SOLDS data so you can get real numbers.... more
The house in picture looks familiar...is it in Drew school district, hillside area? Here is my answer...
1. Put higher wattage bulbs in light sockets to make rooms seem brighter,
especially basements and other dark rooms. Replace any burnt-out bulbs.
2. Get rid of smells. Clean carpeting and drapes to eliminate cooking odors,
smoke, and pet smells. Open the windows.
3. Make minor repairs that can create a bad impression. Small problems, such as
sticky doors, torn screens, cracked caulking, or a dripping faucet, may seem
trivial, but they’ll give buyers the impression that the house isn’t well
4. Tidy your yard. Cut the grass, rake the leaves, trim the bushes, and edge the
walks. Put a pot or two of bright flowers near the entryway.
5. Patch holes in your driveway and reapply sealant, if applicable.
6. Clean your gutters.
7. Polish your front doorknob and door numbers.... more

It really depends on you plan. If you are wanting to move pretty quickly then leasing it could be an option. You can use that income to pay the mortgage and in the meantime it can still be on the market while its leased. You could specify that it is to be only a year lease or however long you intend. If an offer is made on it then the buyers would be told that they can not take possession of the home until after the tenants are moved out.
Leasing at least gives you the extra income to keep paying the mortgage to avoid having to possibly pay two mortgages, but its also a little more involved!
Putting it up on the market all depends on the amount your Realtor or (if you want to sell yourself) you price it for. Depending on the price it could go pretty quickly or not so quickly. Being that Haughton is a growing area, it is possible that it may sell sooner rather than later.

Hello Lauren some of these answers are fishy. Look bottom line is a full time Realtor does not have to be a Broker, your choice. I have very GOOD investments for sale mostly to owner occupants first then they go to investors. I work with MANY investors on a repeat basis and specialize in investment properties. I have been a Realtor for 33 yrs. If you are looking in the New Orleans and surrounding areas please call me.

If the borrower is approved for traditional FHA loan, called FHA 203(b), then the borrower is qualified for the FHA 203k loan.
There are additional steps to getting a 203k closed such as contractor proposals, feasibility analysis (optional), Work Write-Up (performed by 203k Consultant) [needed on Standard 203k], etc.
But if you only submitted an offer to purchase a property where you were going to be using the 203k as your loan and your offer was not accepted, then you can submit another offer on another property using 203k as your financing method. You can repeat this process until you get an offer accepted.... more
Boy! I wish some of these guys responding to questions would actually answer someone and do the cut and paste routine. As of today, there are no new guidelines restricting buyers. That's not to say it can't happen. How does that translate? Get prepared and move! Interest rates and home prices are only going to go up.
Best of Luck!... more
Trulia only accepts for sale postings from licensed professionals. If a 'for sale by owner' wishes to post here they need to find some way to work with a licensed agent. There are brokerages here in New Jersey that will post listings to the local Multiple Listing Service for a flat fee. I am not sure whether they will post that listing here on Trulia or not, I suspect not. I way this as kindly as possible, you get what you pay for. My advice, find a good realtor to list your home with. Statistics show you will actually get more money in your pocket at the end of the day than if you decide to go it on your own.... more
