http://www.batonrougerealestatebuzz.com/ – Video Of Baton Rouge Homes Value: How Much Value Do Pools and Metal Buildings Add?

baton rouge real estate tony zito and bill cobb talk pools and metal buildings

In this video, Realtor and Broker, Tony Zito, and Home Appraiser, Bill Cobb, discuss how appraisers value pools and metal buildings. Generally, the return might be 1/4 to 1/3 of investment, but not always. Sometimes pools have no value at all, especially the older the age of the pool. Some people likes pools and others don’t and end up filling them in with dirt. However, if you’re buying a home to live there forever, enjoy that home and add what you can afford to install…..just don’t expect to get a dollar-for-dollar return on your investment of items in your yard.

REO / Foreclosure Rate: Based on MLS Data of the actual solds, the REO rate is a low 7.14%. However, It’s also stated here that a 2009 article (The Landmines Within by Michael Tarabotto
http://activerain.com/blogsview/930436/The-Landmines-Within ) stated that as much as 70% of REOs never make it into the MLS. MLS is reporting 2 comparable REO listings. However, since it’s possible that 70% of REOs and/or Sheriff Sales never make it into the MLS System, it’s almost impossible to know exactly how many competing REOs there really are out there.
