Lake Charles $120,000 Homes For First Time Home Buyers

4402 Pleasant Drive Lake Charles LA SOLD


Homes for Sale in Lake Charles in the South area under $120,000 are rare and can go fast.  Real Estate in Lake Charles is busy and buyers are out looking.  Properties in good condition under $120,000 are in demand for first time homeowners.  This  3 bedroom 2 bath home located at 4402 Pleasant Drive in South Lake Charles sold for $109,000.  After working with these first time homebuyers for several months we finally found the one!

Once a buyer decides on Lake Charles home to purchase the process is usually 30 days start to finish from contract time to closing day.  Due to the low mortgage rates banks everywhere are busy, and as a result appraisals may take longer and files remain in underwriting longer.

The Buyers of 4402 Pleasant had a very quick contract time from 5/3/12 to closing date on 5/24/12 which was even a day earlier than the contract date!  That is a pretty quick closing here in Lake Charles LA

Looks like these new homeowners will be spending Memorial Day weekend moving into their new home and their daughter will get to celebrate her 16th birthday in a new home, that is pretty memorable in itself!

If you are a homeowner considering selling I would love to bring a SOLD sign to you and if you are a buyer looking to purchase in Southwest Louisiana I would love to put keys into your hand!  Contact MARILYN BOUDREAUX, Century 21 Mike D Bono & Co.’s 337-478-1578 or 337-499-9592 to learn more about Lake Charles Real Estate
