I apologize we have an incorrect photo for your home on Trulia and I am happy to provide some insight on this. When a property is off market, the default image is provided to us from Google images of which we do not have the ability to edit or remove. Off market homes do not appear in general search results, so anyone browsing for listings in your area will not come across your property page. The only way to find your home on our site right now is if someone were to enter your exact property address.

Please be assured if you are intending to sell your home in the future, you (or your agent if you choose to use one), will have the ability to create a new listing with new photos, and submit the listing to Trulia.

The new listing will override the off market property page with the incorrect Google image photo.

However, if you are wanting to pursue this incorrect image further, my best recommendation is to contact Google directly to request they blur out the incorrect home. This change will translate to your page on Trulia. I understand this is not exactly the resolution you were looking for, and I do apologize for that. Here would be the steps if you choose to go this route:

From your Trulia property page, click 'View Map' on the bottom right of the Google image.
Click 'Street View'.
Click 'Report a problem'.
Fill out the form and click 'Submit'.

I grew up in Chalmette my whole life, after Katrina, it is not the same. It used to be very nice, now you have to be careful as it has down graded a lot. Metairie and Kenner or over on the North Shore like Slidell or Covington is much better. I believe it depends on the person and the amenities you would like to have around you.

My advice is to walk into walmart in Chalmette and the above places and that should tell you where you will feel comfortable living.

It's not if you work with the right agent who knows the market like the back of her hand! I just found my buyer a great 1,100 sq ft house for $70,000 in a great flood zone, with granite counters and stainless steel appliances! Feel free to email me at and I will email you all the available homes (FSBO, Foreclosures, Short Sales etc) that are currently on the market!
Happy Home Buying!!!

Hi Erica,
There are some great houses on the market but you have to be careful of the flood zone changes when you are looking. I have a great website you can use to check any property to see FEMA's projected flood map changes for that particular home. Also if you make under $74,900 a year there are a few programs that offer 100% financing! Please feel free to email me at and I can help you find the right home for you! I search ALL available properties for my buyers, even For Sale By Owners so you know you are getting the best possible deal out there! Happy Home Buying!!! ... more

The market in Chalmette is improving. The amount of good listings is shrinking. I see an upward
tick the the price per sq. ft. that homes are selling and I expect that to continue. 113 pr ft, Is at the
extreme limit and 108 is above the top. If you hang in there for a while you may get to 110 pr ft.
I don't think it will be years it may be in the coming months. I just did a survey with 13 properties that have sold in the last 90 days. One was at 100 a ft 5 were 90-98 per ft. the other 5 were 93 to 98 a ft. and
7 were 81-88. If you want more info. you can reach me or my cell 504-512-3602

Hey Madison, thats a unique question. Everyone's situation is different and your personal needs should be looked at first. Is the location and distance of work an issue? Both areas are very nice locations. I service the Metairie area so if you choose Metairie, I would be happy to help you find the perfect home. Good luck with your decision and your soon to be move.

Chalmette and Meraux are the areas that most buyers want to search for a home. They are the most populated
and were strong areas prior to Katrina.

Unfortanately you did not include a link or address, your best bet may be to go back to the listing you saw, click on the profile for the listing agent and email them directly.

The first part of your question was cut off, so I'm not sure what you're talking about.

Betty Anne Burns answered:
The length of time a home stays on the market depends on many factors. Price, you don't want to be the highest priced home in the area, location also drives how the demand and affects how long a property stays on the market. Your agent has a great affect on the length of time you home will stay on the market. How did he/she market your home, what exposure is your home getting and where. The commission you are offering to the buyers agent/broker, quality of renovations, landscaping ... more
