Baton Rouge Real Estate, Curb Appeal

Baton Rouge real estate

Glenda Daughety & Team, Baton Rouge real estate

When it comes to Baton Rouge real estate, curb appeal matters. Curb appeal is what draws a buyer to your home from the get-go, making him want to enter the front door and see more. If you can spruce up the outside of your home it can help attract potential buyers. From a great lawn to a clean front porch examine every inch of your Baton Rouge property to see what you can do to enhance its curb appeal.

A big part of curb appeal is often overlooked and that is the driveway, sidewalks and pathways surrounding your home. Taking care of cracks, chips and holes in the concrete or asphalt can go a long way toward your home’s curb appeal. A smooth, coherent surface, like newly resurfaced blacktop, lets buyers know that you take care of your Baton Rouge home.

Selling Baton Rouge Real Estate, Avoid Being Trendy

Glenda Daughety & Team, Baton Rouge real estate

When selling Baton Rouge real estate it is important to avoid being trendy.  Bright paint colors, super modern furniture and other trendy items can actually turn off buyers, which may be contrary to what you would think.  While keeping up with trends is important to some, it is important to remember that many trends die quickly and installing something trendy may make some Baton Rouge home buyers leery.

If you are remodeling your Baton Rouge home prior to listing you may want to consider sticking to classic finishes, alliances and fixtures.  Many items stand the test of time while delivering a fantastic upgrade to your home at the same time.  If you are questioning what to do consider consulting an interior designer.  Your Baton Rouge REALTOR should prove to be a valuable sounding board as well.

Contact Glenda Daughety and Team today to learn more about current home trends.  We welcome the opportunity to give a complimentary listing presentation and prepare you for the selling process.  We know Baton Rouge LA and we know Baton Rouge real estate.

Baton Rouge Benefits From Commercial Construction

Glenda Daughety & Team, Baton Rouge real estate

Baton Rouge benefits from commercial construction.  Louisiana is leading the nation for industrial development at the moment.  Last year nearly $5 billion was spent on industrial construction in the state, with the next closest being Iowa with just over $2 billion in industrial constriction.  The boom in commercial construction demonstrates the state’s dedication to growth and its ability to create jobs.

As commercial growth takes place in Baton Rouge and across the state of Louisiana there has been a rise in personal wealth as well as an increased interest in relocation to the area.  Where there are jobs there will be people.  Baton Rouge has much lower unemployment than most if the US and as a result weathered the recent economic storm with relative ease.

Five Louisiana cities are considered the happiest cities in the US, Lafayette, Houma, Shreveport-Bossier City, Baton Rouge and Alexandria.
