Wayne Clark answered:
Hi Shannon,there is a procees to have certain liens wavied or reduced. Its a bit tighter than it use to be because some liens were forgiven but the owners of the property failed to comply.

I am very familiar with the process. It has to be approved by various department and parties. I actually use to work there and help create the process.

If you are in need of assistant or just have questions, please contact me to discuss you needs. I'll be happy to work with you on this.

As I tell everyone, be carefull with a rent to own home. They can work out great for everyone if it's a good fit but a lot of things can change in the years that you care waiting to buy the home. If you click on the link below it will take you to a Blog I wrote about Rent to Owns and how they work.

I recently heard, as well as read an article in the Gambit, that it is illegal to do a short term renal less then 2 months in the FQ or 3 months anywhere else in New Orleans without a bed and breakfast permit. This would mean you could still lease your place as long as the term is at least a 2 month lease. I recommend you contact the Vieux Carre commission to verify. The Marigny is an area of town within walking distance of the FQ. ... more

Daniel answered:
depends! If you live in a rural area, you may be able to bring a mobile home onto the property. If you live in more populated area, probably not.... also, how long will the project take?

Would I want to live next to a burnt out structure with a 5 yr redevelopment plan?? no, cause it is bringing down my property value

just depends on your situation -

Ron Thomas answered:
Understand that the LISTING PRICE has one primary objective, to attract attention: It is not intended to be set in stone, and in many cases it is not even a good guideline toward the SELLING PRICE.
Some Sellers believe that by setting the LISTING PRICE high, they can always come down, and people will make an offer anyway: WRONG! Buyers will just bypass the property and look at houses that are within their price range. And six months from now, the Seller will slowly start lowering the PRICE, (this is called “chasing the curve”) and Buyers will be asking the question; “What’s wrong with that house?” and “Why has it been on the Market so long?”
Other Sellers set the LISTING PRICE low, to attract multiple offers. (The correct strategy.) We are asked; “Aren’t you obligated to sell at this price if someone offers it?” The answer is probably not; for that to happen, you would first have to have only one offer, and secondly, the offer would have be exactly the same, down to the smallest detail, (please discuss this with your Realtor).
Another thought; Buyer will search for potential properties by groups; for example, $400,000 to $450,000, and $250,000 to $300,000. If your house is priced at $460,000 or $310,000, the Buyers will never see it. (something else to discuss with your Agent.)
Different Banks have different philosophies about pricing their properties: You cannot draw any conclusions without a good analysis.
Have your Realtor do a CMA, (Comparative Market Analysis) to help you determine your Offering Price. It is the surest way to determine the Market Value of the property.
