… And I Have No Home Shopping Privacy

If you have ever felt this way when viewing homes with your agent, you probably were being watched by the sellers. Your audio may have been recorded as well.

With the popularity of doorbell cameras and whole-home security cameras, sellers are watching your every move. Some sellers will watch for you to walk up to the front door and then unlock the door remotely. They know exactly how long you were there and if your agent left before you did. Yes, we have had sellers call to let us know it was very unsettling that the agent left before the potential buyer because the buyer sat in the driveway for a while after the agent had already left.

Inside the home, the security devices are not as easy to spot as

Ascension Parish Market Stats

In Ascension Parish in March of 2019 the average sales price was $265,680 that was up 8% from March of 2018. This is really good news for sellers! Return on Investment baby!

What was particularly interesting to us was that in March of 2019, only 198 homes were listed vs. 247 in March of 2018, yet both years 73.2% of those homes sold. That would indicate a dip into the inventory and is solidified by the fact that the days on the market in the sales in March of 2019 was 92 days vs. 62 in March of 2018.

What does getting a "deal" on a home purchase mean to you?

Now that we have begun to enter into a buyer's market I have been hearing many prospective buyers talk about wanting to get a "deal" on their purchase. What exactly does that mean to you? Let's explore some of the "deal" options you may encounter.

Price

This is the first thing most people think of when they think of getting a deal in real estate. They want to know that they purchased a house for far less than not only the appraised value but less than fair market value.
