Buyers –Don’t Wait too long to Make That Offer!

The average days on market for a listing in Southwest Louisiana is within 120 daysPrice, location and condition  of a home for sale are figured into that average.  When a Lake Charles home for sale has all the right points the property will attract a buyer and go under contract quickly.

Qualified buyers searching for a Lake Charles, Sulphur, Westlake or Moss Bluff home for sale should be prepared to act quickly once you find a property that meets your needs and criteria.

Case in point….On August 9th I showed this 3 bedroom 2 bath home located in Sulphur to a Buyer.   After viewing many properties, the Buyer liked this house but wanted to think about it before moving forward with an offer.  Today on September 7th the Buyer decided to make an offer on the house.  Sadly the home is no longer available, this Sulphur LA home for sale went under contract on August 15th and is closing next week!   This home located at 2214 Division in Sulphur LA was only on the market for 13 days!!

Another example of a Buyer waiting too late and missing out on a home that they loved.   This is the second time this month this  has happened to one of the Lake Charles Buyers I have been working with.  After viewing many properties and finally finding the one you love, it can be disappointing news to hear that the home is no longer available.
