516 Contour Lake Charles LA

I begin working with first time home buyers Josh and Patricia 45 days ago.  They wanted to find a home in South Lake Charles that had a big backyard and was large enough for their family of 4.

We viewed about 10 homes total and kept coming back to this South Lake Charles home located in University Subdivision. During our home search several homes on the Buyer’s list of choices went under contract before we could schedule a viewing!

South Lake Charles is a popular area and many first time home buyers are out searching NOW to take advantage of the low rates and have a house note lower than Rent!


516 Contour is a 57 year old home located on a large lot size of 200 x 140  in University Place Subdivision.  University Place is located close to McNeese State University and conveniently located to everything in South Lake Charles.

This 4 bedroom 3 bath home had been  renovated with new flooring, tile and updated bathrooms.  Originally listed for $189,500 this home sold for $188,00 with the seller paying closing costs of $4,119 and a $419 home warranty.

Since Josh and Patricia were first time home buyers they did not know any of the steps and were surprised how easily the transaction went.

We closed on time  with no extension and no appraisal issues!  Thanks to Craig Boudreaux at Louisiana Mortgage Associates in Lake Charles for getting this couple an awesome rate in the 3% range on an FHA 30 year Mortgage!!

This was truly a closing where everyone was all smiles!!
