Construction progress – Pelican Point

The Grassroots Team’s finest home is coming along nicely – brick and roof will be done tomorrow, windows and doors finished by the end of the week.  It’s amazing how a construction site can go from a mess to beautiful by closing time!

A buyer has already snatched this one up, but be on the lookout for the next one we’re starting VERY soon.  We will be asking for YOUR input on the finishes just like we did on this one!



SOLD – 38302 Henry Rd – $550,000 – Stats

And thus, one of the most memorable and enjoyable selling experiences of my career has come to a close, with the final sale of “the most beautiful property in Ascension Parish.” I can not thank the seller enough for allowing me the honor to sell this home.  This was a gorgeous property with a fascinating history, irreplaceable charm and had what one potential buyer called “insurmountable opportunity.”  Some interesting final facts:

Number of Tours: 14 – Averaged 1 tour per day, with each tour lasting about 1.5 hours. That’s 21 hours over 2 weeks that I was showing the home.  One day I did 3 in a row. Whew!

Number of offers: 3 – all arrived within about 5 hours of each other.

List Price/Sales Price difference:   3.5% – pretty good for a unique property such as this.

Days on Market: 14

I will miss this home.  I have included pictures for this home one more time, and congratulations to the new owners!  I wish them the very best and can’t wait to see what’s in store!


New Listing – Acreage on Mars

Well, not our listing but if you’ve wanted to stake your claim on the Red Planet here is your chance!  $15 for a full acre over half off LIST price.  I wonder if this is considered rural housing…

I can’t decide what is more awesome – that there is only a limited quantity available or that 1 has already been bought!
