Listing Your CondoWith an Experienced Agents Means a LotEric has sold over 200 UnitsExposure of the Condo ! Take Good Photos     I take a lot of nice photos of the condo and the complex. I write some of the things people like on the photos so they will know the positives. Best to take photos of all the positive common areas. It is also OK to take photos of the nearby neighborhood. Many people who look at condos in New Orleans may be buying them as second homes. That is why the common areas and neighborhoods help.      I write some of the more positive issues of the condo on the photo. Best to write the one best for a particular photo. Buyers can see these easily.       Recently started putting the flyers, blogs and pages of the listings on Facebook as I have about 17,000 friends that se...

The Byater Neighborhood of New Orleans               The Bywater is that area between St. Claude Avenue and the Mississippi River. It runs from Franklin Avenue to the Industrial Canal near Poland Avenue.  Its an up and coming neighborhood with a lot of renovations and a demand area. The majority of condos in the area are going to be parts of doubles or buildings a little larger but few complexes.       Lets view the neighborhood and see what the homes and streets look like. The best way for me to do that is do that thru photos of the Bywater Neighborhood. View of the Bywater Neighborhood at Sunrise from the French Quarter.  Its not that far away. Bridge to the Crescent Park that runs along the Mississippi River in Bywater Neighborhood of New Orleans.     View of Downtown New Orleans fr...

St. Elizabeth's Condos 1314 Napoleon AvenueUptown New OrleansHistoric Condo Conversion Corner of Napoleon Avenue and Prytania StreetLike Taking a walk into the past...Very Historic Condo Conversion       St. Elizabeth's was built as a boarding school in 1865 and later turned into an orphanage for girls in 1870. The Daughter's of Charity closed the school in 1989 and moved the program to Marrero, where they already operated a similar program for boys. The place was put on the market and almost became upscale apartments and senior citizen housing before Anne bought it in 1993. St. Elizabeth's is an immense three-story brick edifice of 55,000 square feet. The three buildings that comprise St. Elizabeth's are the largest cluster of Second Empire design architecture in the city of New Orlean...

The Federal Fibre Mills Condos 1107 South Peters,New Orleans 70130Warehouse District        The Federal Fibre Mills has a great history. The 140 units are in the five story building that was built around 1900 as a rope factory as the Port of New Orleans was a block away. Completed in 1903.        The Federal Fibre Mills was part of the 1984 Worlds Fair. The German Beer Garden was downstairs and the monorail came into the building. Units were made for the workers. By being part of the 1984 Fair the common grounds are second to none in the New Orleans Condo Market.       Across the street is a Park before the Convention Center. It is an easy walk to the French Quarter, Outlet Mall and even the Superdome. Parking is in a gated lot 1/2 a block away by the Bakery Condos. Each unit has parki...

Lower Garden District CondosSt. Mary, St. Andrews, St. CharlesNew Orleans     There are a number of condo associations in the Lower Garden District. I picked a couple of streets where conversions were made into condos from townhouse doubles. Most are histroic in nature once you move from St. Charles Avenue.     I have sold at least one in each of the condos on St. Mary and St. Andrews. Many on St. Charles as well. Saint Mary Street 1440 St. Mary Street Condos1444 St. Mary Street, Near Prytania1520 St. Mary Street, Nine Condos Saint Andrews Street 1326 St. Andrews StreetHistoric Townhouse Double turned into condos. St. Charles Avenue Condos 1224 St. Charles Ave, Near Lee Circle, Couple of blocksOn the Streetcar line, 1224 St. Charles Ave.

French Quarter Condos and Balconies       French Quarter Balconies are one of the most sought out features of condos in the New Orleans French Quarter Condo Market.  The numbers do not show up in the square footage prices but they are worth thousands of dollars.  Its the feel and views to have a street balcony that tops the list. There are 2 types of balconies...The Gallery and a standard balcony. Many times they are just grouped togeather.       A Gallery is connected to the ground which allows them to be larger and have roofs. They are supported by columns and can be as high as three stories. Just open your window and hop out. Most condo units that face the street do not have doors to get out. Just crawl out the window.  Many of the interior balconies do have french doors to exit tha...

The Lower Garden DistrictNew Orleans 70130          Once you go under the Mississippi River Expressway you are in the Lower Garden District. A truly historic neighborhood established between 1820 and 1840. At that time is was like living in the country.        The Lower Garden District extends to Jackson Avenue between St. Charles Avenue and the Miss. River. Lots of current activity in the real estate world.       The Lower Garden District area is a short walk to Magazine Street Shops and Eats. Great area to walk and window shop.         There are quite a few condo complexes in the area. They are going to be small complexes as most were converted from apartment buildings and old homes. It's is great area to look and see what a historic neighborhood it is.       I have sold many in the a...

The French Quarter Views Streets, Unique Shops and Window Shopping       One of the reasons owning a second home in the French Quarter is there is always so muc to see and do. The activities change monthly. In addition to Christmas, New Years, Mardi Gras, French Quarter Fest, Jazz Fest, Conventions, Saints Football games you just have a lot to see.       Just walking the streets looking into shops and windows is totally different than where people make their first home.  They the second homers come to have fun and have a good time. Just park the car and walk for a weekend or weeks and you never get to see it all.     French Quarter Window Shopping   It's Fun and it Free...Window Shopping leading to Carinval Window Shopping for Art Work, Colorful and Bright  Lots of Unique Clothes, "Hon...

French Quarter Condos           The French Quarter is going to have a large variety of condos that will vary in size, style and age. This page will give you a variety and feel for many of the condos that I see. I will be adding to this page going forward since there are so many small associations.        The vast majority of condos in the French Quarter will be used as second homes.  From the map below you can see that the Quarter is just not that large but there are a lot of properties as we review the condo associations.       Most of the condo associations are small complexes of eight or less. Many will have small courtyards which cannot be seen from the street. Parking will not come with the majority of condos.         The New Orleans French Quarter is unique in so many respects an...

Neighborhood Condos in New OrleansGarden District and Uptown Areas         One of my favorite type of New Orleans condo is what I call a "neighborhood Condo" that is generally historic in nature and just fits inot the neighborhood.  At one time most of these were double or four plexes in neighborhoods.  Some are going to be large homes that were once transformed into rentals and later into condos.     On this pages will be a number of examples of what I am talking about. Most of these will be between Magazine and St. Charles with a few on the other side of St. Charles. They are not easily found unless you walk the neighborhoods and know people who live there.     One thing they all have is common is that they are within walking distance of so many things. These are all going to be close...
