Free Consultation

The right rental value for your property in Baton Rouge will set you up for profits and pain-free investing. Many landlords we meet are confused about how to price their rental home. Rent that’s too low loses money right away, and it’s hard to catch up to market rates. Rent that’s too high will only leave your property vacant, and that’s expensive, too.

At Milton Lakvold Real Estate, we specialize in the Baton Rouge rental market. We analyze reliable market data to give you the best range for your home. Contact us for a free consultation of what your rental property is worth!
