Architecture in Louisiana

Looking into Louisiana’s architecture most would find a vast array of old and new side by side. Many initially think of New Orleans’ French Quarter with the colorful, ornate and historic homes. However, much of the state offers not only the French inspired architecture, and the plantation mansions, but a plethora of family dwellings featuring their own unique characteristics.

Newer developments often offer a colonial style single story living with cathedral ceilings. The advantage of homes with this kind of architecture is, they are spacious, have clean lines, and can be customized with high end finishes to anyone’s taste. Although, some call those modern homes, “cookie cutters” due to the overwhelming amount of neighborhoods in the country with that architecture style. If your looking for the same space and clean lines as a colonial, an Acadian with its big front porches might be a good alternative.

Still not enough character? Look into a craftsman or contemporary style home. They both usually feature beautiful exposed wood beams and give the home a cozy welcoming feeling. Just don’t jump into an older home without good knowledge or backup. The walls can hide decades of trouble. Regardless if its your first or third, Louisiana has a large market with a multitude of different architectural styles to choose from.

FSBO BLUES | LOUISIANA REAL ESTATE


I read an article last night in the wall street journal that really got me thinking. The article was about the founder and former CEO of forsalebyowner.com. In 2011, he listed his own 2,000 square foot, 2 bedroom, New York home for sale on his own web site as well as advertised it in various classified ads. After 6 months of sitting on the market, he sought the help of a licensed real estate agent. The agent told him that he actually had the home priced too low and was also targeting the wrong type of buyers. Soon after listing the property, they received multiple offers and ended up closing for $150,000 more than the original asking price.

Now granted, the real estate market in New York is quite different than here in south Louisiana. Yet, so many times I have watched fsbo’s struggle for months and end up losing more than they ever would have by simply paying a realtor commission. This seems no different than going to court without an attorney. Very risky. Time is lost, money is lost, & stress is high. I’m not saying that no one should sell by owner, but I do recommend at least this; consult with at least one successful Realtor. Weigh out your options and consider their advice.
If the FSBO Guru used an agent…. Shouldn’t you?
