Going to Open Houses

by Pat Wattam

Why do so many people spend their Sunday afternoon going to open houses?  Some people just like to look at homes for a hobby, others like to get decorating ideas, and then there are the rest - people who are thinking about buying a house and are just trying to get the lay of the land or, honestly, don't know where to start!

When we bought out first house it was something we set out to do, but was something we really had thought about and figured we would check out some open houses in the areas we were interested in.  At our first open house we fell in love with the house and met a Realtor.  The house was sold but he assured me he could find one that would be right for us.  We made an appointment to meet with him later that week. And what do you know, the first house he showed us I knew would be our new home!!  Of course, we had to see the rest on his list to make sure!!!  He became a great friend of ours and we used him when we sold it later plus he sold homes for about 4 more friends.  That's what a GREAT REALTOR does.

At the Pat Wattam Team we hold open houses to showcase our listings and to meet new clients.  Our experise can save the buyer a lot of time driving around or surfing on the internet.   Tell us what you want and we will help you find the perfect home. 

So, before you just go driving around and looking at open houses, call us.  We'll make your day!  225-298-6900!

Getting Your House Ready to Sell(Exterior)

by Blake Hanna

Have you thought about how to make your house stand out from the rest? A house with great curb appeal catches the eye of buyers. Having excellent landscaping can get a buyer to  bring you a higher offer. Having colorful plants or flowers, flower beds with fresh mulch, pruned trees, and edged grass around the walkways and sidewalks will really the front of your house look great.

Just becasue your front yard looks great doesn't mean you can neglect the backyard. The back should be landscaped to the same caliber.
