Lagniappe Living in Lake Charles, Louisiana: December 2012

Last House Closed Just in Time Before Christmas!!



2520 W Gauthier Rd, Lake Charles LA


Twas the week before Christmas and all over Lake Charles, Realtors, Lenders, and Title Companies scrambled and hurried to get Buyers into homes before Christmas holiday arrived!

I had the pleasure of working with a young first time homebuyer earlier this Fall.  We began viewing homes for sale in South Lake Charles in October.  The challenge was this buyer is a diver who works off shore and we had to view houses  in between his time in town

This home was occupied and the Sellers were a bit frustrated with a Christmas move with two small children, the house went under contract just a few days before the listing was expiring!

Due to the buyer's work offshore Docusign was the most effecient way to signatures on documents. Once we got a clear  to close the buyer did not know if he would be coming home to Lake Charles until after Christmas due to being offshore.  Thank goodness for that cold front and a storm moving in, he was released and we closed right down to the wire at 5:00 pm Friday December 21st!!

Best gift in the world is a new home and we overcame all the challenges on this one.  The loan officer, title company underwriter, processor and myself sacrificed shopping,  and partaking in eggnog Friday to make sure this closing took place!  Now its a MERRY CHRISTMAS for everyone
