Yes, they do mainstream. There is no more or less of a bully problem here than anywhere else. I will say that the St.Tammany schools take bullying very seriously.

Tim Moore answered:
When you buy a short sale you have to get a loan from a lender to buy it. Being a short sale is no different than buying from Mr Smith in that you agree on things and get a loan to close. Agreeing on things can be problematic and the condition of the home can be worse and that can make trouble for the VA loan that has it's own inspection the house must meet. If there needs to be something fixed the homeowner probably can't do it so you have to get the owners bank to do it - another problem to overcome. ... more

Old Mandeville boundary opinions vary, however it is generally the area East of North Causeway, south of 190 East, to Rapatel and Lake Ponchartrain as the southern boundary. The main streets include Monroe, Girod (Gerard), Lafitte, Marigny, , Lakeshore Drive, and several others. Great old neighborhood with walking or biking access to Parks, restaurants, shopping etc...
Desirable schools and location too.

In a nutshell, our MLS does not require it. We are required to put in the lot size (ie 100 x 120) and we can choose from a range of acreage categories (less than 1, 1-5, 5-10, 10+). The various websites such as trulia do not always recognize the field description so it doesn't get uploaded to their systems.
If you really want details, work with a local realtor who can set up a search with the parameters you want. You'll get updates on the properties that meet your acreage requirement.
I would be happy to do this for you.

Mandeville, LA is by far the most family oriented city I have ever lived in. Everyone is ridiculously nice and helpful. I do not think being an interracial couple would have any affect on how you are treated. What these folks care about is you. How you treat your neighbors and how friendly you are in return. Race has absolutely nothing to do with any of that. Good luck finding a home and if I can be of an further assistance, please let me know! ... more

Mandeville Middle, Fountainbleau jr. and Fountainbleau High are definitely the best in the area. They all have a rating of 9 or higher on all of the local school rating websites. I personally have a 12 year old who attended Mandeville Middle and will be moving on to Fountainbleau in the fall. We have been incredibly pleased with the quality and I will continue to recommend these schools to all of my clients with school-aged children. ... more
