Tips for Louisiana Homeowners


Louisiana Realtors do more than just listing and selling local real estate.  Besides staying current with continuing education and changes in brokering real estate, Realtors work behind the scenes as an advocate for homeowners!

The National Association of Realtors also plays an important role in political advocacy.

Did you know that Louisiana Realtors play an important part with strong representation on issues that affect real estate in Louisiana? Realtors have worked to influence policy and pass legislation to strengthen the Louisiana real estate market. Listed below are just a few examples of how Realtors have benefited the homeowner in Louisiana.

  • Abolished future real estate transfer taxes in Louisiana with the historical passage of a constitutional amendment
  • Lowered property insurance costs and provided incentives for competitive homeowners insurance.
  • Consumer protection through sound mortgage banking requirements (licensing, enforcement and education of mortgage bankers)
  • Reducing consumer liability through standardization of the real estate transaction
  • Protection of private property rights (seizing of property by municipalities)

To keep you informed of the latest developments impacting your home, neighborhood and way of life the Louisiana Realtors have developed a Homeowners Resource Center at

This is a great reference site for Homeowners to seek information;

  • Real estate news and trends
  • Explanation and background on important real estate and home ownership issues
  • Information on how to protect and increase the value of your investment
  • Homeowner resources including online calculations, guides for buyers and sellers, and links to valuable Internet resources.
  • Calls to action on important real estate related legislation.
