My family is relocating to Metairie July/August and am looking for a realtor with knowledge of the area.

Asked by charlie.brinkley, Metairie, LA Thu Jun 6, 2013

Our preferences are a close commute to CBD (within 15min if possible). Family oriented area with high rated elementary. Considering both rent and buy options. Would like to keep total monthly payment between 1200-1400month. Are visiting this weekend to look at some apartment and would like to also view a few listings.

I would suggest asking your agent if they would be willing to use there phone of tablet and take a mini video of the traffic in the area at the time of day you would be commuting??? It probably wouldn't take your agent that long and based on your follow-up question, that may be just what you need. :) Hope that helps!

thanks for the offers. i did locate a realtor now and there seems to be some house rentals that are reasonable, as well as homes for sale that we will begin looking at over the next 2 weeks.

one question i still have is how is traffic when commuting to CBD in the mornings? are there delays in the area? would RTA/JET be better to use from Metairie than driving?

It depends where in Metarie you are and what time you come and go from work.
RTA is not a real option.

When buying, think what it costs today, and what it can possibly be worth tomorrow. Tread carefully
