Bank News & Local Real Estate.
Sabine Bank is the buyer for three Whitney locations. Good news for Sabine and good news for local banking industry our market does not need another bank at this time.
Capitol One closing 28 West branch as of October following national trend of fewer bank branches look for other consolidation in the future. 
Thiels Post Office on Government Street will be closed. Curious how long it will take the Post Office to dispose of this real estate.
1921 Jackson Street restaurant now open and I was truly impressed with my first visit. Those that complain we don’t have enough local eating establishments need to support the ones we have. Stop by and spend your money at this new establishment.
St. Francis Xavier Academy three stories building from 1897 is going through $1,000,000 capital campaign renovation. Tudor Construction is the contractor and Barron, Hienberg, and Brocato is the architectural firm. The Cathedral choir member jack Randall is long time architect with BH&B.
Vidalia plant announced new $100 million dollar pellet plant by Hinter-land LLC. When new jobs are created in the region it helps everyone we are competing with the world economy and not with the community next door, I like to think “what’s good for my neighbor is good for me.”
People not Property:
Dean Graziosi $2,000 seminar in Bossier City last week on how to make a fortune in buying real estate? Did any of our audience attend seminar and curious if you thought it worth the $2,000.
Mayor Roy and his staff for moving quickly to cure title problem on City Park where it was discovered that the lot line stopped in the middle of Bayou with no connection to City Park Avenue. The City moved fast to make sure deal closed on time saving the tax payer from paying higher interest rate and they also cleared up the over sight for other owners along the bayou. 
John Cotton Dean regional food systems planner with CLEDA is sowing good seeds in our local food program within the region. Colfax now has 10 vendors at twice a month farmers market Saturday and Tuesday mornings. If you have shopped at the market give us a call.
England Economic and Industrial Development District:
David & Mary Philpot (440 Moss Point Dr., LA 71409) to The England Economic & Industrial Development District - 4 acres in Sec 11, T4NR2W, $166,500.00
Cindy S & Jerry W Gentry (384A Moss Point Dr., Boyce, LA 71409) to The England Economic & Industrial Development District - Part of Lot U, Bayou Grosse Park, Ext. 2, $125,000.00
Tips for the week:
Pay attention to the time allowed for closing and keeping your interest rate locked. Good agent can keep you posted and move the approval process forward. However, the buyer needs to manage their part by moving quickly to provide lender with required documents and take some risk with ordering appraisal and title abstract prior to loan approval. $450 for appraisal and $300 for abstract could be small risk to beat dead line for closing date necessary to save your rate.
 Construction Contracts: 
Zero recorded contracts for the week.  
(+2.50) Rod’s Economic Indicator Perfect Score is 5.
When top rating of 5 appears week after week I will share with our audience, that “Green Shots” is here and recovery is in full swing.

(+1.25) Total Weekly Volume:

Lot Sales:
To rank positive score need one sale per week the market gave us zero partly due to reduction in available inventory and partly to continue dearth in construction locally.
