Know How to Value Your Condo !More ImportantMore than Just the Size of UnitYears of Experience HelpsLetting the Buyer Know Pluses      Buyers want certain things these days that add to the increased desire for a New Orleans Condo. Much more than just the size of the condo. 1. Parking Spots have become more valuable over the last 10 years. Garage Parking and Gated parking by the complex is valuable. Easily worth 30k to 40k.  2. City Views and Windows in most of the rooms. Buyers like to view street and parts of the city. Much more than units that lookout over roofs or atriums.

The Union Lofts334 Carondelet StreetCentral Business DistrictNew Orleans Warehouse District  Completed as Condos in 2015         The Union Lofts are 33 newer condo units in downtown New Orleans between Perdido Street and Union Street. This is four blocks from the French Quarter and on the St. Charles Streetcar line. It's an easy walk to the French Quarter and the rest of the Warehouse District. If there is one negative is that parking is an issue. No parking with the association but rental parking is available around the complex.        The units have that classic modern feel and are open floor plans giving them a bigger feel than the sq. ft. indicates. The one bedrooms are large for the Warehouse District and the two bedroom are average size. The developer units come furnished with a m...

St. Joseph Street Condos801 St. Joseph StreetNew Orleans,La. 70113Warehouse District        I remember these condos very well as it was one of the first Warehouse District Condos that I showed in 2004. They were upscale at the time and are still that way. Many of the units have been upgraded since that time. Most of the units are 2 bedrooms.      The 21 condos are in the main building and several townhomes are on the other side of the parking garage. The townhomes face a wonderful courtyard and pool. There is a gym there also. The townhomes open to the courtyard. The ones on Carondelet are three story units with over 2000 sq. ft. of living.       The parking garage is secure and units have at least one spot a piece and several  may have two spots. The parking opens on Carondelet Steet o...

The Henderson Condos700 Commerce StreetBetween Notre Dame and GirodNew Orleans Warehouse District    The Henderson Condos were one of the first condo associations formed in the Warehouse District when they were converted from rentals into condos in the mid 1990's.

You generally have to rent a spot in a nearby lot.        The condo fees are moderate. The condo features a great party room on the roof with a small courtyard with grills and great city views. There is also a small gym and secure entrance on Commerce Street. The units have exposed brick, beams,and hardwood floors. The ceilings are high...
