If you are looking for affordable real estate on the West Bank of New Orleans, Oak Cove should be on your list of neighborhoods to check out. Developed in the mid to late 1970s, it offers a variety of ranch floor plans, many of which have been modified by the owners over the years. The neighborhood and landscaping have both matured, so it’s no longer a cookie cutter subdivision, but has taken on the unique characteristics of the various home owners. Located off of Barataria Blvd, south of Lapalco, Oak Cove has some of the most affordable real estate on the West Bank, with home prices ranging from the upper $80s to the low-mid $100s. The neighborhood is just about 100% built out, so resales are the only option for purchasing in the community. The commute into New Orleans can be made in a...

Hillcrest Subdivision, Marrero LA Hillcrest has a couple of unassuming entries on Barataria Blvd, just south of Lapalco.  But don't let the lack of a fancy sign fool you, this is one of the most in demand subdivisions in Marrero.   Originally developed in the early 1960s, Hillcrest continued to grow and expand into the late 1990s, so there is a large mix of home styles and ages throughout the neighborhood.  From 1960s and 70s ranch homes to newer construction, there's a style to fit almost any need. Hillcrest homes for sale   Typical Hillcrest homes have 3 or 4 bedrooms and 2 or 2 1/2 baths and an average of just over 2000 square feet.  There are some custom built homes sprinkled throughout the neighborhood that are larger, with additional bathrooms and square footage topping the 4000 s...

Barataria Oaks Estates •  Marrero LA Neighborhood Barataria Oaks Estates is located off Barataria Blvd. in Marrero, LA, on the West Bank of New Orleans.  Just far enough from New Orleans to feel suburban, it's still less than a 30 minute commute to downtown, the French Quarter and most of the city attractions. Situated on the edge of the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park, you'll be just minutes away from the natural beauty that south Louisiana has to offer in the form of bayous, swamps, nature trails and more. Development began in 2004, with the newest homes completed in the last 5 years.  Both Viola Homes and LA Homes were builders in this small community of 3 and 4 bedroom homes ranging from 1550 to 2500 square feet of living area and featuring attached garages and fenced yards.

First time home buyers are in the final stages of completing their transaction. Just a reminder of expectation at the Act of Sale. Many of my first time home buyers are already nervous to begin with. This is normal. The Act of Sale brings the buyer and seller together to formalize the purchase of the new home. Lets cover what you should do the in the days leading to the act of sale. Confirm the time of the closing. Location of the Closing Attorney office. On the day of closing bring picture ID. Bring Certified Funds If spouse or other is signing make sure they have the location and time. Make sure your insurance is in place. Schedule for the Electricity, Gas and Water to be turn on. Ask questions at the closing. Make sure you leave with Keys and a copy of all the paperwork. Save the HUD...

For this week's neighborhood of the week, I took a drive through the winding streets of Plantation Estates in Marrero, LA. Originally developed in 1979 by Marrero Land and Development, Plantation Estates is located off of Barataria Blvd., just south of Lapalco Blvd..  The location provides a quick commute to employees at West Jeff Medical Center and is a short distance from Highway 90 B (West Bank Expressway) with easy access to downtown New Orleans and the Central Business District. The Plantation Estates Civic Association is charged with enforcing the neighborhood covenants and restrictions, including collection of the $60 per year home owners fee and the $280 per year security fee for community security patrols by Jefferson Parish Sheriff's officers. Membership in the civic associati...

Single family home sales in Marrero rose slightly from January to February, with 31 homes being sold during the month.  However, this is still about 25% fewer properties than were sold at the same time last year (41 in Feb 2007).Because inspections and financing continue to cause many purchase agreements to be canceled, I encourage sellers to make sure their homes are in the best possible condition before putting them on the market.  I also encourage potential buyers to update all of their information with their mortgage professional - many programs have changed or been discontinued and an approval received more than 30 days ago may no longer be valid. Pending sales in Marrero as of 3/4/2008:  78 Currently active listings in Marrero:  281 Low listing price:  $49,900 High listing price: ...

Just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans, Bent Tree Estates in Marrero, LA is the neighborhood of the week.            Originally developed in the late 1980s, Bent Tree is located just off of the Lafitte Larose Highway, with easy access to Barataria Boulevard, Lapalco Boulevard and the West Bank Expressway for commutes to anywhere in the metropolitan area.  If you are stationed at NAS JRB New Orleans in Belle Chasse, your commute time will be approximately 20-30 minutes.  Within a short distance of Bent Tree Estates you will find plenty of retail shopping and dining.  Or, travel south just 6 short miles to the Jean Lafitte National Park Barataria Preserve for a day in the great outdoors.      The Bent Tree Estates Civic Association helps in the maintenance of the c...
