Section 8 – Fix it or Leave it?

Section 8 has always been a political football for politicians, and a debating point among working people.  The issue is simple: should those receiving government funds for housing have time limits and work requirements attached to the vouchers?

In the video below, Frank and Gary at the National Real Estate Post discuss the comments made by both outgoing HUD Director Julian Castro and incoming director Ben Carson, and the details surrounding this debate really changed my perception as to the government’s obligations with the program.

Watch the video and give me your thoughts.  What do you think about Section 8?

2016 Sales in Review!

2016 has been a terrific year – we sold 39 homes and over $7.3 Million in volume, making 2016 our best year to date.  I thought it would be fun to catalog every home we sold this year – listings and buyers –  and after doing so it really runs the gamut of properties.  From traditional to contemporary, new construction to “vintage” to multi-family and investment/renovation projects.   Not shown here are the lots and land sales, mainly because no one wants to look at shots of grass, trees or plat maps, lol.

And last but not least, the home we purchased for our family in Baton Rouge.

Let’s make 2017 even better!  Call me at 225-772-3283 for your home selling and buying needs.  and of course I always appreciate referrals!

SBA Playing Favorites with Disaster Loans

This is a letter that a friend of mine received from the SBA regarding their application for SBA loan assistance.  They own their own home and 3 rental houses, none of which were required to have flood insurance.  However, because they were responsible with their money, acquired assets and can get “credit elsewhere”, the SBA is mandated by federal law to charge MORE interest on their SBA loan.   Not only that, they would only get a 7-year term as opposed to a 30 year term available for everyone else.

This historic flood has devastated many lives in our area and systematic favoritism has no place in rebuilding peoples’ lives.   This is the kind of thing that politicizes the federal disaster response efforts and breeds contempt moving forward.  If EVERYONE is affected, then EVERYONE should be treated fairly.
