Adding well over 10,000 construction jobs, Louisiana ranked 3rd highest in the entire United States for the addition of construction jobs throughout the state.  A total of 10,700 jobs were added increasing the amount of new construction employment to 8.3% from October, 2012 to October, 2013.  It’s the largest year over year increase in the construction sector since the beginning of the Recession.  Louisiana had a high number of increase throughout the entire state because of several new commercial and industrial project starts.  Some of these projects were located in the Greater New Orleans and listed below:

  • 939 Iberville, redevelopment of a mostly vacant French Quarter building into an 87-unit residence. Plans call for unit sizes ranging from 765 to 2,164 square feet, as well as an 85-vehicle parking structure. Price of this project: $26,000,000
  • New Orleans South Market District downtown, a mixed-use development off the Loyola Avenue streetcar line. The Paramount at South Market is one of the proposed commercial construction projects and is a five-story apartment, restaurant and retail building. Price of the entire project: $200,000,000
  • Broad Community Connections, in partnership with L+M Development Partners (L+M), begins construction on the ReFresh Project, a 60,000 square-foot development on Broad Street includes a Whole Foods Market, Liberty’s Kitchen full service café and commercial kitchen, and The Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine at Tulane University. Money utilized on the project is a $1.9 million loan.
  • The nation’s first gasification plant, built by the Leucadia Corporation in Lake Charles, Louisiana.  Investment of this industrial construction project $2.5 billion

Nationally, overall, 39 states out of 50 saw an increase in construction employment.  The #1 state to see an increase was Florida at 19%, and Mississippi at 11% came in second.

“It is encouraging that three-quarters of the states are now adding construction jobs on a year-over-year basis,” said Ken Simonson, the association’s chief economist. “Employment increases are still intermittent in too many states, however, and nearly all states are far below their pre-recession highs.”

In St. Tammany Parish, the real estate market saw an upsurge of business in one of the typically slowest month of the year in November.  Ron Lee Homes has several new custom home construction projects that started in the last few months, and we have several new homes that will be built at the beginning of 2014.  The real estate industry, specifically the new home construction builders, have been a major factor in the increase of the GDP in the United States in 2013.  For information on building a new home in the Greater New Orleans area, Contact Ron Lee Homes today at 985-626-7619 or E-mail Info@RonLeeHomes.com.

With the news in September, 2013, that the Fed will not be tapering back its bond buying program any time soon, mortgage interest rates dipped again for the 3rd time in as many weeks to 4.22%.  The interest rate for a 1-year adjustable rate mortgage is now 2.63% while the interest rate for a 5-year adjustable rate mortgage dropped from 3.03% to 3.07%.

With the government shutdown underway, lenders and the stock market are watching to see how long the shutdown will last and how this will affect interest rates.  The longer the shutdown lasts, the worse the US economy will be.  However, in a twist of fate, this is good news for the real estate industry.  When the economy is performing sluggishly, interest rates drop to stimulate the economy.  So, lower interest rates, while good for new home buyers, can be a sign of a weak economy and lower consumer confidence.

Another factor of the government shutdown is the potential default on the raising of the $16.7 trillion dollar debt ceiling.  The opposite effect would be true in this case.  If the government defaults on its debts, the effect would be a domino effect on all of the world’s economies causing interest rates to skyrocket.  Lenders, in the mean time, are on hold as the government sorts through its financial and political issues.  Requests for income verification for borrowers are going “into the pile” as the IRS is closed until further notice.  Approvals for FHA loans are also experiencing a delay as those offices are also out of commission until the end of the shutdown.

However, the drop in interest rates to 4.22% came in a steady decline over a period of almost a month, so this trend is not a result of the government shutdown.  However, economists predict that this downward trend will soon level off and sustain itself (barring any complications from the shutdown) over the next few months.  Another review of the economy by the Fed will happen in the 1st 2 quarters of next year to decide yet again as to the fate of the bond buying program.

If you are a home buyer looking to purchase a new home, interest rates are still at incredibly “low lows” giving you as the home buyer more buying power.  You can get more “bang for you buck” – a higher priced loan at an affordable monthly payment, and you can find new and custom home by Ron Lee Homes right here in St. Tammany Parish.

According to local designer, Neil Peyroux, owner of Peyroux’s Custom Curtains, there are certain frequently asked questions about how to decorate and cover your windows in your home.  Most floorplans designed by builders heavily accentuate natural light by creating as many windows as tastefully possible within the space of each room of the home.  However, it does become necessary to block out that natural lighting especially during Louisiana summers where the combination of sunlight and the heat can bring unwanted outside ambiance into your home.  Below are some tips and trick to window covering recommended by Peyroux.

Shades or mini-blinds are a fast, easy way to cover light coming in from a window.  There are many types of shades ranging from all different colors, shapes, sizes, and prices.  How do you know if you should use shades or curtains.  Peyroux recommends using shades for smaller, more tightly fitted windows that don’t have a lot of wall space.  This is an easy way to shade the light without having billowing curtains swinging out into open space or swinging into each other if the window is in a corner.

How do you know where to hang your curtains?  Peyroux recommends hanging curtains high above the window, almost to the ceiling.  Most curtains these days are of lighter material and will fall from a high level gracefully to the floor making the window seem larger than it really is.  Older curtain styles were of heavy, brocade material which really closed out the light and muddled the space above and around the window instead of accenting it.  The same concept can be used with shades.  You can purchase a shade that is taller and wider than the window itself and hang it above the window to give it height.  However, if you own a historic or older home in the Greater New Orleans area, Peyroux recommends that you don’t cover up the custom millwork or woodworking around the window frame itself.  If the window absolutely has to be covered, he recommends hanging the shade inside the window so that you can still enjoy the artistry of the architecture on the window.

Choosing the right curtain rod and accent rings can be tricky.  There are many different styles and pricing for these items, so if you have a limited budget, you will probably be dictated by what you can afford.  Even at that, you can achieve the same look as the real thing by using faux bronze, silver, and wood finishes – even if they are made out of plastic.  Peyroux uses metal curtain rods, rings, and accents for his hardware.  The reason for doing so is that he can make the window covering look more ornate or more simple just by the type of curtain or shade that he installs.  Also, he uses 3/4″ – 1 1/4″ thick rods for durability so that they don’t bend.

For style issues such as the “puddling” of a curtain Peyroux usually installs his window an inch or two off of the floor, giving a break between the curtain and the floor.  In older times, the puddling of the heavily damasked curtain – think Gone With the Wind – was a sign of wealth and decadence.  These days, it’s just more stuff to move when you are vacuuming or something to keep away from the cat or puppy when they move into your home!  To protect your window treatments from the sometimes brutal southern sun, there is now something called UV film which protects not only your curtains but also furniture and other cloths and fabrics from the harmful rays of the sun.  This UV film blocks 90% of UV rays and can be very effective at making your accessories last.  Plus, it is a film, so you hardly even notice it is there!  These and other tips can be recommended by several designers who work with Ron Lee Homes.  After building our new, custom homes in St. Tammany Parish, we offer “after construction services” by introducing you to our designer affiliates.  These interior decorators can make recommendations for furniture or accessories in a simple consultation, or they can do a full-scale design solution for your new, custom home.  Contact Ron Lee Homes at 985-626-7619 or E-mail Info@RonLeeHomes.com for more information.

An FHA mortgage loan may be harder to come by in the future because of a change of the role of the federal government in the housing market, according to real estate professionals “in the know” about the situation.  The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has been actively lobbying in Congress about new plans to privatize the mortgage lending industry.  Unbeknownst to most, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are not federally owned mortgage companies.  Both of these companies were privatized and taken public over 20 years ago.  However, the reputations of both of these companies in the real estate industry have made it so that they are relied upon by most lenders both nationally and internationally to be federally backed for FHA loans.

The majority of FHA loans are offered by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.  With the closure of these 2 companies and the privatization of the mortgage sector, it could become very expensive in the future for home buyers to purchase a new or previously owned home.  FHA loans may be phased out altogether or modified so that they do not achieve the purpose for which they were created in the Roosevelt era – to provide an “easy” way for low-income families to qualify for a mortgage. The names Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are actually based on the departments of the federal government which were in charge of their structure and development – Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie).  Mortgage bonds issued by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae still fund more than 90% of new home loans. Bank portfolios and other private lending make up the rest.

A legislative proposal called the Protecting American Taxpayers and Homeowners (PATH) Act is now being discussed by Congress and the NAHB (National Association of Home Builders).  As of now, the PATH Act is shying away from ANY government involvement.  However, this is not the direction in which the NAHB wants it to go.

“NAHB believes federal support is particularly important to ensure that 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages, the bedrock of the nation’s housing finance system since the 1930s, remain available at reasonable interest rates and terms,” said NAHB CEO Jerry Howard. “As currently drafted, the PATH Act does not provide the federal support necessary to ensure a strong and liquid housing finance system, and we urge the committee to make the necessary changes. The historical record clearly shows that the private sector is not capable of providing a consistent and adequate supply of housing credit without a federal backstop,” he said.

As of now, FHA loans backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac make it so that first-time home buyers can have a lower down payment as well as a lower interest rate when they apply for a loan.  Turning over all mortgages to the private sector would make it virtually impossible for lower income families to afford a home loan.  Nationally in the real estate industry, trending opinions are that FHA loans and the federal government should remain a part of the mortgage industry.  Right now, the United States has the highest rate of homeownership compared to other first world countries in Europe.  Most in the industry would like it to remain that way.

“Once people are putting their own money on the line instead of the government’s, I think you would see a rate increase, the cost to access mortgages would probably be higher,” says Chris Brinson, Fidelity Homestead Savings Bank regional lending manager.

As of now, no agreement has been reached either in government or amongst lenders.  The fate of the future homeowner lies in the hands of Congress as well as representative of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.  The dream of homeownership must not be allowed to “die” as the real estate industry is also partially responsible in rescuing the economy after the Recession.  It will be up to organizations such as the NAHB to tirelessly work on a solution until it has been finalized.

Unlike the distribution of the last influx of money for Hurricanes Gustav and Ike from the federal hazard mitigation money which was used for grants for home elevations, St. Tammany Parish’s president Pat Brister announced that the $7.2 million in federal funds from Hurricane Isaac would instead be used for the construction of detention ponds in the Lacombe area.  18 parishes split approximately $5.2 million from Hurricanes Gustav and Ike, of which Mandeville received $420,000.  This $420,000 was allocated for grants to residents to raise their home elevations to avoid damage in any future hurricanes.

The City of Mandeville has made it clear to St. Tammany Parish that they would like the new amount of $7.2 million in federal hazard mitigation money to also be allocated to home elevation.  The Parish disagrees.  In a letter to Pat Brister, Mayor of Mandevillle Donald Villere said the city “philosophically disagrees with the parish’s approach to flood mitigation, which officials said involves construction of large “detention ponds” designed to reduce the risk of flooding to thousands of homes.”  He has asked the Parish to reconsider.

In addition to the philosophical disagreement on the distribution of the federal monies, Villere also would like the monetary distribution of the $5.2 million to be recalculated based on areas which received the most damage during the hurricanes.  The City of Mandeville offered a formula which was loosely based on the state’s formula for distributing disaster money.  This recalculation would give Mandeville $1.6 million of the $5.2 million instead of $420,000.  Instead of basing the calculation of money disbursed on population numbers, the city suggest using the amount and percentage of damaged or flooded homes in a particular area.

“We believe that using this methodology is fair and equitable for both the parish and all municipalities,” Villere wrote.

The reason Mandeville feels so strongly about the disbursement of the grant money is because of the damage done to Old Mandeville during the slow-moving Hurricane Isaac last summer.  Over 200 structures were damaged prompting an engineering study to be commenced by GEC Engineering to come up with a flood protection plan for most West St. Tammany Parish residents.

Brister’s response to the City of Mandeville was apologetic, yet practical.  According to St. Tammany Parish’s estimates, over 3,200 homes in St. Tammany Parish fall into a “repetitive loss” category which means that these homes received damage in the last 2 hurricanes.  Of which, 260 homes had severe repetitive losses.  In order to be fair, if money was allocated to the City of Mandeville for home elevation grants, it would need to be done parish-wide.  The cost to cover the elevation of more than 3,200 homes would be approximately $650 million.  With only $12 million plus to work with, the feasibility of the allocation would not be realistic. However, the good news is that the creation of the detention ponds could be a first step to an overall flood plan for St. Tammany Parish.

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) addressed Congress today with a laundry list of recommendations which will help spur and maintain growth in the now blossoming real estate industry.  One of the biggest fears for new home builders and all of the vendors and sub-contractors who are involved in the building and completion of new homes is that the fragile state of the economy will be derailed by legislation on the table which does not make sense for the home building industry.  Also, there are a couple of incentives which have spurred builder growth throughout the Recessions, which if not renewed, could slow down the momentum in the growing construction market.

One of the first topics addressed was the interest rate deductions for current homeowners.  NAHB’s chairman Rick Judson, a home builder and developer from Charlotte, N.C., in testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade strongly recommended leaving this program in place.  His platform echoed many presidential statements on the necessity of a strong middle class in America.  Judson contended that because the interest rate deduction program helped and affected many young homeowners, that they were more apt to buy new homes and use the deductions to reduce the amount of taxes paid.  Young home buyers were then able to build credit and equity in their home investment and therefore create more wealth both in the equity as well as the savings from the interest rate deductions.

Another issue that was addressed was that of the energy efficiency tax credits for both builders and homeowners which are set to expire soon.  Judson urged the Committee to renew these tax credits in order to make builder more energy efficient homes and do more energy efficient renovations more affordably.  Energy efficiency tax credits such as the Existing Home Retrofit Tax Credit (25C) that provides consumers a tax credit of up to $500 for the purchase of qualifying energy-efficient products and the New Energy Efficient Home Tax Credit (45L) available to builders who construct energy-efficient new homes are important policy tools to provide home owners and builders with incentives to perform energy efficiency upgrades on homes.  With the advent of energy efficient products, more people in general look to buy a home instead of rent a home because the monthly utility payments become more affordable, the more modern and “green built” a home is.

While the economy and the real estate market have taken an upturn, because of the Recession and inflation, the cost of building materials has skyrocketed over the past 6 years.  Judson urged the government to do all that it could to lower the increasing costs of building materials especially imported products.  Citing a shortage of materials especially for framing lumber, oriented strand board and gypsum, Judson explained that vendors have a hard time buying up what they need because of price and availability constraints.

Another issue addressed before the Committee was the lack of labor available for the building or remodeling of homes.  Because of the Recession, those who used to be in the construction industry had to find jobs elsewhere because work on new home construction and building was temporarily unavailable.  A recent survey of NAHB members shows that since June 2012, residential construction firms have been reporting an increasing number of labor shortages in all aspects of the industry – from carpenters, excavators, framers, roofers and plumbers, to bricklayers, HVAC, building maintenance managers and weatherization workers.

“With congressional attention shifting to immigration reform, I believe strongly that this debate provides an important opportunity for the country to implement a new market-based visa system that would allow more immigrants to legally enter the construction workforce each year,” said Martin. “This would complement our skills training efforts within the nation’s borders, and fill the labor gaps needed to meet the nation’s housing needs.”

With money tight for everyone in today’s economy, the temptation to start a Do It Yourself (DIY) project whether it is a repair or a renovation seems to be the first choice of most homeowners.  Especially with the advent of instruction videos on YouTube for every conceivable type of exterior-1project, DIY projects seem feasible and affordable.  If you work with your hands, have a lot of common sense when it comes to using power tools, and “know your way around” construction or electrical workings, you probably have a very good chance of being able to accomplish whatever task you may have in mind.  If you are just looking to save money and do something fast and affordable, below are some not so well known facts about the pitfalls of starting a DIY project.

1.  Cost: Most jobs are priced by contractors or remodelers by materials and labor.  So, you figure you are going to “save on the labor” by buying the materials and doing it yourself.  This seems like a good prospect until you get halfway through the project and realize that you have to buy a specialized tool or rent a piece of equipment in order to complete the job. Also, the price of materials that you will buy at your local Home Depot or Lowes is sometimes 3 times what a contractor will pay.  If you are stepping into unknown territory on the DIY project, you may not know how long to expect the project to take. The rule of thumb is that the longer a project takes, the more cost is accrued.  You may end up having to rent a piece of equipment over 3 weekends instead of just once to get the job done.

2.  Safety: This is perhaps the most important consideration when taking on a DIY project, especially if you are dealing with electricity or plumbing.  There is a reason why some projects require a licensed electrician or plumber.  If you are working on an older house, you may encounter older circuit breakers and wiring, and while your intentions are good in that you are trying to upgrade that same wiring or circuit box, one wrong move with a hot circuit could land you in the hospital.  When it comes to plumbing, there is not as much of a threat of ending up in the hospital, but messing with plumbing pipes can get messy for your home.  We’ve all seen the commercials of the large trucks scooping waste out of someone’s front yard because of a back-up in the septic system, the same threat of ending up with water or waste in your home is possible if you are not absolutely sure of your plumbing skills.

3.  Time and Timing: As a DIY, you don’t work on homes for a living, so you don’t want to spend every weekend day of your life working on your project (unless you enjoy doing it as a hobby).  Sometimes, you think that your project is “not going to take that long,” and a month later, you are still looking at part of your newly remodeled kitchen cabinets partially torn out or partially installed.  Unless you are an experienced DIY’er, you may underestimate the amount of time your project will take, leaving part of your home unusable until the project is complete. Also, the longer it takes to complete your project, the more it normally ends up costing you.

DIY projects can be fun, save you money, and “educate you” on taking care of and fixing your own home.  Only you know your own abilities and limitations, so taking into account the items mentioned above will help you decide whether you should do it yourself or hire a contractor to come in and do it for you.

Whether you are buying your first home or your 4th home, the time you spend in your home before downsizing or upgrading makes a financial difference in your investment.  Most people start out in the real estate industry when they buy their first home.  Unless they come from a very wealthy family or have won the lottery, the home is priced modestly or on the low end and is built that way as well – smaller square footage, less bedrooms and baths, in an up and coming neighborhood.  First time home buyers can be single professionals who are successful, in a steady job, with an income that is rising each year, but most people who buy a home for the first time are couples looking to start a family. These couples eventually would like to move out and move up to provide more space for their growing family.  They are “getting their foot in the door” with their first home to establish credit and create equity opportunity to eventually sell and move up to something bigger.

The biggest question then, to ask is this – how long do you stay in your home in order to make sure you aren’t losing money and to build enough equity to become a “move-up buyer?”  The answer to this depends, but it is typically about 5 years.  Below are the reasons for this number:

1.  Closing Costs: Whether you are buying a new or previously owned home (resale) or refinancing your home, you are going to “run into” closing costs.  Closing costs is the profit for loan originators, title companies, and the state in which you live (recording fees) which are charged during the loan process.  Every company needs to make money, and closing costs are how they make theirs.  Closing costs are, most of the time, added to the principle of your home, increasing your loan amount and shrinking your home’s equity.  Each time you make a real estate transaction, you are charged these costs.  Staying in your home approximately 5 years “pays off” these closing costs enough for there to be enough equity in your home (most of the time) to have money for a down payment when you move to your next “move-up” home.

2.  Interest: Even with the historically low interest rates in the market today, the mantra in real estate still stands, “The Bank Gets Paid First.”  When you are paying your monthly loan payments, you will notice on your mortgage statement that the amount of principle being paid on your home is significantly less than the amount of interest being paid.  You can also see this on your amortization schedule during your closing.  As your loan “ages,” the amount of interest balances the amount of principle and eventually ends up being less than the amount of principle during the last years of your loan.  If you only stay in your newly purchased home for a short period of time – say 3 years – the amount of principle you “pay off” will not be enough to merit a sale and move unless you are making extra principle payments each month.  The recommended period of time to stay in your home, reduce the amount of interest charged, and pay off as much principle as you can in order to gain equity during a sale is 5 years.

3.  New Vs. Used: The type of home you buy can also make a difference in how much time you spend in it before you upgrade to something bigger and better.  If you are buying a new home, it really doesn’t make that big of a financial difference in the time you spend in the home because typically, in a new house, you don’t end up with much maintenance on the home until about 4 – 5 years in.  On a previously-owned home, resale home purchase, however, there may be a significant amount of upgrade and upkeep that you will expend when you first move into the home.  Depending on the age of the home and the last time it was renovated, big system items, such as hot water heaters, condensers, garbage disposals, ductwork, roofing, etc. could end up needing to be repaired or replaced.  If you look at the amount of money you spent on renovating the home, the amount of interest you pay on your monthly mortgage payment, and the amount of closing costs you paid during the initial purchase; you may see that it would behoove you to stay in the house for about 5 years (or more) to get the equity out of the home to pay off your financial investment.

4.  Appreciation: The “golden days” of “instant appreciation” are fewer and farther in between when it comes to purchasing your first home in an “up and coming” area.  During the real estate boom of the early 2000’s, subdivisions were seeing appreciation in their homes from the beginning and build out of Phase I to the commencement of building Phase II.  You have probably seen the prices on the signs change from Phase I to Phase II where the exact same floorplan started selling $10,000 – $20,000 higher in Phase II than it did in Phase I.  Those days of instant appreciation are very rare, so when you purchase your home in an area you expect to experience residential and commercial growth, you, as a homeowner, may have to wait a little bit longer for that long-anticipated appreciation to come about.  Along with the other factors mentioned above, this is yet another reason to wait approximately 5 years before selling and moving to a bigger and better home.
