new orleans real estate: Holy Cross New Orleans Neighborhood Guide - 06/07/18 08:08 AM
About Holy CrossYears from now, new residents will wonder how the Holy Cross New Orleans neighborhood got it's name, since the school that gave rise to the moniker has relocated to Gentilly. But this subsection of the Lower 9th Ward, between St. Claude and the river, will always be remembered by natives as Holy Cross.
Measuring less than 1 square mile, Holy Cross took a hard hit during Hurricane Katrina. This is evidenced by the number of empty lots and homes still in need of rebuilding, even in 2018. But the neighborhood is definitely experiencing a comeback in popularity, as home buyers find … (0 comments)

new orleans real estate: Discover the Fairgrounds New Orleans Neighborhood - 06/05/18 07:11 AM
Fairgrounds Neighborhood New OrleansSurrounding the Fair Grounds Race Course in Mid City, the Fairgrounds neighborhood is mostly residential, with the architecture dominated by raised cottages, shotguns, and townhouse style homes that sit on long, narrower lots.
Bordered by Bayou St. John, you'll find City Park, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and plenty of outdoor activities nearby.
Buyer beware, though! For 2 weekends each spring, the Fairgrounds neighborhood is inundated with both locals and tourists during Jazz Fest. If you don't have off street parking, you'll need to butter up that neighbor that does so you don't get stuck schlepping groceries … (0 comments)

new orleans real estate: Do I Need a Termite Contract in New Orleans? - 04/20/16 05:45 AM
Termites in New OrleansWe're getting close to that time of year when the termites start swarming in New Orleans. If you haven't experienced swarm season, you're in for a treat (that's sarcasm, for the new folks).
There's nothing quite like having to turn off all of your exterior lights to avoid attracting the little darlings during their mating season and then finding tiny termite corpses scattered everywhere the next day.
Repeat every single night for a couple of weeks and you'll get an idea of why termites are always part of the conversation when we talk about New Orleans real estate.
The damage that termites … (2 comments)

new orleans real estate: Pros and Cons of Condo Living in New Orleans - 03/31/16 02:03 AM
New Orleans Condo Buying
New Orleans was late to the condo game, but we've exploded with options over the past few years.
Some buyers are looking for a second or vacation home when they visit the Crescent City. Others are downsizing because they're tired of spending the weekends cutting grass. And milliennials seem to love having a built in community that comes with living in a building instead of a single family home or apartment. 
What do all of these buyers have in common?
They need to know the pros and cons of condo living before they make a decision about where they will plant their roots.

new orleans real estate: 5 Questions To Ask Before Buying a New Orleans Home with Solar Panels - 10/23/14 07:02 AM

Over the last few years, we've seen more and more New Orleans homes with solar panels.
They've been all the rage as a potential energy saving device on homes.
Are you considering the purchase of a home with existing solar panels? Here are some things to think about before writing that offer.
1. Are the panels leased or purchased? If they were purchased, the seller will have to pay them off at closing since they are an attached fixture on the property. But, if they are leased, the seller doesn't technically own the panels.
2. If leased, what's the monthly cost and can the lease … (1 comments)

new orleans real estate: Let's Talk About HGTV and New Orleans Real Estate - 09/10/14 10:32 PM
Is HGTV influencing your perspective on how real estate is bought and sold in New Orleans? If so, we need to talk.

REALTORS® love to make fun of real estate related television, because 99% of the time, it has no basis in reality. The programming is designed to show you a successful outcome for every home buyer, but the reality is that it will more than likely take looking at more than 3 homes to find the one you love.
Most of the time, the home owners shown have already chosen a house and their agent has agreed … (30 comments)
