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
