Searching for a Residence for McNeese Students

It is not too early to begin your search for a housing your McNeese State University student!

I have received several calls lately from parents searching for property in Lake Charles close to McNeese State University.  One of the newer local apartment complexes charges $1,100 a month for a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom unit.  With the lower interest rates, chances are a Lake Charles cottage style home or a Lake Charles townhome can be purchased with a lower monthly note!

There are  several homes for sale in and around McNeese and the University area.   To give Lake Charles consumers an idea of what is available I am going to feature 4007  Center Street located off of Common Street near the McNeese softball field.

Center Street is listed for $99,000.  This remodeled cottage home is a 2 bedroom 1 bath home with an over-sized carport and new stainless appliances in the kitchen!  An average mortgage payment for this property that could be obtained with a conventional or FHA loan would be about $ 682 a  month. *  This is a great investment for a college student that can share rent with a room-mate and sure beats an apartment rent of $1,100!!

If a newer townhome is more your style  there are new townhomes being built in South Lake Charles.  2 bedroom 1.5 bath townhomes with granite counters, wood floors and modern amenities available.  A 2 bedroom 1.5 bath townhome is currently listed for $140,000 and a 3 bedroom 2 bath  townhome  listed for $159,500.

Don’t wait until the Fall to begin your home search, contact me today for your options.  I would love to assist you and share Lake Charles homes for sale currently available to fit your needs!

* 4007 Center Mortgage Example is based on a 4.25% 30 year mortgage with taxes and insurance estimated in the payment
