Slidell, Louisiana is located in southeastern Louisiana on the northeast shore of Lake Ponchartrain.  It is only a thirty minute drive to the city of New Orleans to the west or the Biloxi Coast and Casinos to the east.  Slidell, Louisiana is named after John Slidell, a Louisiana Politician who was born in New York and later moved to Slidell in the early 1800's.  The city of Slidell was incorporated in 1888.  Slidell was originally the home of the N.O.N.E (New Orleans and Northeastern) Railroad building camp and later a shipyard which employed many residents in building aircraft, ships and tanks for WWII. Today, while Slidell is close enough to the city of New Orleans to be a part of all the excitement and culture, it is also just far enough to continue to have a small sleepy-town feel....

Buying Real Estate Undervalued vs.Buying UNDER VALUE!by Attorney William Bronchick   "Undervalued" vs.. "under value"... is there a difference?   People often speak of buying a property "undervalued", as if they are discovering something nobody else figured out. Stocks, land, and real estate can all be purchased undervalued, but this is different from buying property UNDER value.   Here's the difference...   Let's say you think a company is ripe to expand within the next few years. You are speculating that the value of the company's stock will increase, so you buy AT MARKET PRICE and hope you are right. You can also buy a property at MARKET PRICE and hope demand will increase and thus its value will go up. You can buy gold at today's price and hope it will go up in price. However, in al...

"Cutting Your Losses Early...Know When it's Time to Bail on a Bad Deal"by Attorney William Bronchick When your primary plan of action doesn't work, you need to have a backup strategy. This may involve switching gears from a retail sale to a rental or rent-to-own deal. It may also involve dropping your price, dropping your rent, or, if you are lucky enough to realize your mistake early, walking away from an earnest money deposit instead of closing on a bad deal.   If you already closed and your exit plan didn't work out, sometimes the only option is to bail out and cut your losses. It takes a big person to look in the mirror and say, "I made a mistake." Too many investors let their ego get in the way and hold on longer than they should and the bleeding never stops. If it's a retail deal,...

The Wrong Way to Invest in Real EstateBy William Bronchick "Real estate fever" . . . it's hit the Country like a plague. Zillions of "newbies" are hitting the bandwagon, trying to make a profit where they lost in the stock market. I meet them all the time, and many are making big mistakes!   Mistake #1: Stock Market Mentality   You'd think after losing $7 trillion in the stock market people would have learned! Nope, they are making the same mistake, which is assuming what happened yesterday will happen tommorrow. Nine of ten new investors I meet say they are interested in real estate because they saw someone else make money from the rapid appreciation of the market over the last few years. But, buying real estate solely for short-term appreciation is often a big gamble! If you buy real ...

5 Things You Should Know Before You Flip A Propertyby William Bronchick, Esq.   1. Money is made at the buy, not the sell of your flip. When flipping a house your money is made at the purchase not at the sell of the house. So, many times people buy a house with the intensions of making a huge profit only to find out that they could not make any money after all the renovations because the purchased price of the house was to high. When you purchase your property you need to be sure that you buy the house with enough money to make renovations, have carrying cost, and add about 5 $6,000. Now, cost is at $147,000, and that is if everything goes as planned. Profit is under 10,000 dollars. The mistake was made at the purchase at the home, not the sell. 2.
