Why Get a Home Warranty?

by Turner Real Estate Group

Wayne Turner is on the Lake 94.7, and he is a regular guest of the Lake's radio talk show. Wayne calls in to the station to give insight and tips on the local Northshore real estate market. This includes St. Tammany Parish areas of Covington, Mandeville, Slidell, Abita Springs and Lacombe, as well as Tangipahoa areas of Hammond and Ponchatoula.

Today's topic of discussion is related to home buyers and the importance of obtaining a home warranty. Buyers can get a home warranty regardless of the age of the home they're buying, and often times they can get the seller to purchase the home warranty for them.

This provides a sense of security for home buyers as it protects them should something major break in the home. Home warranties only cost between $500-$600, and for that amount new home owners can rest easy knowing if for example their water heater was to give out it would be taken care of. All they would have to do is call their warranty provider, and have a service tech come out. A situation like this would save them hundreds to thousands of dollars.

Home warranties are renewed annually should the home owner choose to repurchase it after a year. This helps home owners feel assured their property is protected.

North Shore Home Inventory

by Wayne Turner

Wayne Turner, Owner/Broker of Turner Real Estate Group in Mandeville, La. has lots of great real estate tips for North Shore home sellers and buyers.

Properties in Mandeville, Covington, Madisonville, Abita Springs, Slidell, Lacombe, Ponchatoula, Hammond and more in the St. Tammany and Tangipahoa areas are high in demand. It's been 11 years since there has been such a demand for houses in these areas. Wayne says it's the biggest housing inventory differential since 2006.

What exactly does this mean? Here's an example: If not another home was put on the market for sale under $300,000 on the North Shore, in 3 months no homes would be for sale on the market. Houses are selling in 3 months or less. Home owners are currently seeing a huge return on their equity, which allows them to take advantage of historically low interest rates thus allowing them to move up to the home of their dreams they've always wanted.

Preparing to Sell in 2017

by Turner Real Estate Group

Check out Wayne Turner of Turner Real Estate Group live on the Lake 94.7 giving home owners tips to spruce up your home to sell it for the most amount of money in 2017. Here is an easy step-by-step guide from Wayne on how to enhance your curb appeal and get the most results when listing your home for sale.

Start with Sprucing Up the Outside

1. Pressure wash  everything you own on the outside of your home.  The house itself, the driveway, sidewalks, shed... Anything that can be cleaned should be cleaned.

2. Cut your shrubs to enhance the garden and landscaping

3.  Repaint the front door.  This is the first impression your home buyers will have your home. Make sure the door mat is fresh and everything looks tidy and clean.

4. Replace doorknobs and hinges if they are chipped, dated, or sun stained. This may not seem high priority but you would be surprised at the difference it makes.

Declutter and Spruce Up the Inside

1. Remove any clutter and once it's gone then clean up the space

2. Fresh flowers are always nice, but make sure decor is up-to-date. Definitely remove any off season decorations from past holidays.

3. Touching up paint goes a long way. Hit up any spots that are dingy or chipped.  

4. Clean the interior windows too. After pressure washing the outside and cleaning the inside of windows, the difference is pretty amazing.
