Relocating to New Orleans

August 10, 2018

I have helped many people plan their New Orleans vacations. And, when they get home, they call me saying “we want to move there!” Thank goodness I’m a licensed Real Estate Agent.

This is not uncommon. Half of my dearest friends who have visited New Orleans once, went home, packed up and a month later were residents.

Do you want to move to New Orleans, too? If so, there are a few things you need to know.

1. You must be prepared to buy or rent fast.
There are lots of people moving to this city with cash in hand ready to purchase. If you are not a cash buyer, make sure you have an approved loan letter in your hand.

2. It’s not cheap but there are deals out there.
Right now, most homes in the Garden District, Uptown and Lakeview areas are selling for $200 to $275 a square foot! If you are in this type of price range the search for you is easy. Call me. Lets talk.

3. Get a realtor and have them work their butt off for you finding you the perfect house for your budget. Once again, call me. Let’s talk.

Rentals

If the price per square foot is $200-$275 you can imagine how much rent can be. An 800 sqft, 2 bedroom, 2 bath in a great area of Uptown/Garden District will cost around $1100 a month. Any bigger, well you know what happens.

But it’s not all doom and gloom. There are places out there that are in your price range so
