http://www.batonrougerealestatebuzz.com/ – Baton Rouge Real Estate Buzz: Multiple Renovations and New Homes In University Gardens 70808

I was appraising a home in University Gardens on Saturday and noticed a substantial amount of renovations projects taking place along with these two new homes under construction on corner lots back-to-back below. It appears the trend in this market is to stay put and renovate or add-on and renovate and/or demolish and build new.

Central Thruway Baton Rouge Real Estate Progress

The last major news article I could locate on the Central Thruway project was on May 20, 2009 from The Advocate here! A snippet of the article stated:

The work order was issued on Monday marking the start of a $9.6 million project to construct two large bridges for the Central Thruway, a city-parish official said.

The contract calls for contractor James Construction Group to build bridges over the railroad bridge and over Sullivan Bayou along the thruway route, city-parish Chief Construction Engineer Jose Alvarez said.

James Construction will have 600 days to complete the two bridges, Alvarez said.

City-parish officials are slated to hold a groundbreaking today for the project.

Another company, L&A Contracting, started work last year on the $23.8 million project to build bridges over Comite River and Beaver Bayou in that same area between Frenchtown Road and Florida Boulevard.”

Renee PorsiaOn February 16, 2010, Renee Porsia posted an interesting article on AgentGenius entitled, “No More BPOs For You! (How You Could be Violating RELRA)

agentgenius dot com

It’s an interesting read and I recommend appraisers take time to read this one! Here’s a snippet:

Perform a BPO and you may be violating the Real Estate Licensing and Registration Act (RELRA) and the Real Estate Appraisers Certification Act, and could be prosecuted by the Real Estate Commission or the State Board of Certified Appraisers or both.”

“For those Brokers/Realtors who are currently performing BPOs or those who have been performing BPOs to get extra income, those days are over and they should be grateful they have not yet been caught thus far.”

Mary Thompson AppraiserMary Thompson also wrote on Active Rain about this very topic, “Just say no to BPO’s… in place of a bona fide appraisal
