new orleans real estate: the best of New Orleans Real estate on Facebook - 07/24/09 03:31 AM

The Best Real Estate values in New Orleans is a page I created on Facebook to bridge the truth and reality from heresay and too many cocktails.
I am determined to bring truth in advertising by promoting any and everything I see that can offer value in terms of Real estate in … (0 comments)

new orleans real estate: The 10 step by step approach to buying...get someone else to pay at least 1/2 your mortgage - 05/20/09 03:56 AM
1) Find a duplex / 2 unit property in decent condition good enough to get an FHA loan.
2) Look at the price points in your area, but make your basis in $100,000.00 increments.
3) You will need $4,000.00 per $100, if the property is $100K, you need $4000 for downpayment, $200K, need $8000.00 downpayment.
4) So on a $200K duplex you need $8K down

new orleans real estate: So much little time - 03/02/08 04:28 AM
In the past two weeks I have been very busy running around....a running marathon, a residential marathon, and the most tiring....searching for that rapidly dissappearing piece of real estate called a warehouse.
What is happening is as fast as I show a couple clients actively looking for a warehouse, they go under contract.  It is like grabbing a handful of dry sand made up of warehouses under 10,000 SF in the New Orleans metropolitian area.
So my bad new report out of New Orleans is that myself and some other fellow Realtors are having a hard time anymore finding a good value on … (0 comments)
