The area is a great place to be. Historic Esplanade offers a very walkable neighborhood. If a condo has been on the market in this area for this long it is probably priced too high. Your best bet is to get a list of properties that sold in the past six months to get a good idea of the real values of the properties you are interested in. ... more

I sold 1140 Royal Street to my client, a business man from Texas who would like to remain anonymous. This is a private residence and cannot be viewed by the public. If you have any other questions pertaining to this or any other French Quarter property, please feel free to contact me at or 504-858-0623. Thank you.

If you have 6 months and alot of time you might get a dollar...maybe.

Focus on the biggest incentive of all...the current interest rates.

One needs to consider:
1) Will this be your primary residence?
2) Are you buying a single family home or a multifamily?
3) How much money are you putting down?
4) How much do you plan on borrowing?

Saying "investment property" suggests it is not your primary residence...this translates to paying 20 - 30% down on any investment property not owner occupied.

No. Because I priced it right to begin with. Why am I taking this listing? To provide my client with a service, not lip service. So many will list a property at whatever the owner dreams up in their mind. I feel a Realtor's job is to educate the owner on the truth of the market. The market sets the price. Now you can list it at market, above market, or below market. If I do my job correctly, the price we agree upon is good and the property will move. The problem is lack of market knowledge. ... more
