Lake Charles home buyers like the perks of new construction features but the price of a new construction home is sometimes out of reach for many first time homebuyers.
Buyers are able to find affordable new construction homes in many Lake Charles neighborhoods. This Lake Charles home SOLD is located in Oak Park and is a completely remodeled home with an effective age of zero. Don’t overlook the possibility of an older Lake Charles neighborhood. Many established Lake Charles neighborhoods may have remodeled existing homes for sale such as this Oak Park home I found for a first time home buyer.
This first time home buyer was renting a house and paying $800 a month. As a Veteran he qualified for a VA loan and was able to purchase his first house and obtain a loan for the same amount he was paying in rent! 4.25% for a 30 year fixed rate is a great deal!!
The first question his son asked was “Daddy when can we put a tree up?” and the Buyer shared with me his son’s birthday is December 24th! I love hearing about the excitement that will be enjoyed and the memories a buyer will establish in a new Lake Charles residence!!
How long rates will remain low is anyone’s guess. Whether you are a buyer searching for a Lake Charles home or currently renting, don’t wait in the background and let opportunity pass you by. Let me be your guide to Lake Charles real estate, I look forward to assisting another buyer find a new home!
