I will absolutely see you there, good Lord willing. Last year we had over 20 teams and 500 people who attended the event in Madisonville. Not to mention beau coup chili. This year we hope to have even more teams, and we have moved to the beautiful Mandeville Lakefront for our venue. Bring your appetites, and… well… for the children I recommed tums… pepto can be messy… or at the very minimum make sure to have a lot of papertowels on hand… LOL! Just kidding, we should have plenty of papertowels… And if we happen to run out, Lake Pontchartrain is very conveniently located (like 20 feet is some cases), so… we should be covered, or should I say NOT covered in Chili… <:-)
I was there sitting in the balcony watching the proceedings below. My first time in the LA House of Representatives, and well WOW! There is alot going on! You have to pay attention and follow well because the pace is brisk. Be prepared. I actually took a little video which I will share as soon as I get a chance to edit. Good stuff, though I should have kept it running for about a minute more, ohh well. I have attached some good pictures which were taken in the waiting room outside the Louisiana House of Representatives.
I would like to thank Louisiana State Representative John Schroder and LA Realtors President Elect 2012 Rick Roberts. I am not sure who the other guy in the picture is… he looks a little familiar but… 🙂
On May 24, the Louisiana House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted, 100-0, to pass House Bill 135, our transfer tax constitutional amendment. Numerous Realtor were present at the State Capitol for REALTOR DAY and cheered loudly when the bill passed.
In all likelihood, HB 135 will be heard next in the Senate Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Committee the week of June 6. The Senate Floor vote could occur late in the week of June 6 or early the following week. When the committee hearing is finalized, we will provide you with that information.
Remember to visit our campaign website, www.staytaxfree.com, and encourage your family, friends, neighbors, customers and clients to sign up for our campaign updates on the website. It’s important that we begin now to build a database of supporters so we can drive those voters to the polls in November.
For more information, please contact Norman Morris at 1-800-266-8538.
Be prepared to vote on HB 135 in November 2011. The Northshore Area Board of Realtors will be working hard on getting the word out. This is a good bill. It eliminates real estate transfer taxes from being enacted in the State of LA.
Less Taxes and Smaller Government!
Attached you will find beau coup information pertaining to the recent, January through March 2011, real estate market in Louisiana.
I like what the fellow says about how a higher number of days on market, may be an indication of Sellers needing to get more inline with their homes current value. Home values have come down, as well there are alot of bank owned REO sales on the market, which is not helping owner occupant property values. Well… The good news is; Louisiana is weathering this economic storm better than many areas.
