Landscaping adds value to Baton Rouge real estate.  Think about it, as a buyer would you be more attracted to a lush lawn or a patchy one with many brown spots?  Go a step further than a nice lawn, however, and you have added greatly to a property’s curb appeal, one of the most important aspects of selling real estate in Baton Rouge.

A recent article from REALTOR Magazine demonstrates that landscaping, on average, can boost the value of your home roughly 12%.  This fact offers great incentive to take  a look at your Baton Rouge property and consider its landscaping and improvements you would like to see made.  If you simply do not have an eye for landscaping, never mind a green thumb, contact a local landscape design firm and find out what is involved with coming up with a plan.

Glenda Daughety & Team, answering all of your Baton Rouge real estate questions

When it comes to Baton Rouge real estate is there anything you should know about selling your home prior to two full years of ownership? It is a good question. If you own your home for two years you are entitled, as a single homeowner, $250,000 of tax-free profit. The limit for married couples filing jointly is $500,000. But, what if you sell only a year after you purchase your home?

If you purchased a home in Baton Rouge and need to sell within the two year time frame you can do so and keep your tax-free income if you meet a couple of qualifications. If you need to move because of employment, health, or approved unforeseen circumstances you may be in the clear. Take the time to speak with your accountant to discover if you can take the tax-free profit on the sale of your Baton Rouge property.

Owner financing is one way to get a Baton Rouge real estate transaction completed.  Whether a buyer is having a hard time securing a loan or a seller is exploring an additional income stream, in the right scenario owner financing can make a great deal of sense.  If you are considering owner financing as a way to buy or sell real estate in Baton Rouge it is important to know what you are getting into.

If you are considering seller financing as a way to buy or sell Baton Rouge property it is important to educate yourself and weigh the pros and cons.  For sellers financing can add interest income until a buyer can secure a mortgage or pay off the home.  However, financing does come with risk, which usually boils down to headaches.  Buyers benefit form seller financing until the opportunity arises to secure a loan on their own but they should have a professional examine the loan documents thoroughly prior to signing.
