New Orleans Real Estate After Katrina

Oct 11, 2007
It has been a challenging couple of years here in South Louisiana ... but today, the New Orleans area and the entire Gulf Coast are roaring back to life as the desirable, viable economies they've always been.

New Orleans real estate agents are up and running, ready to sell your home or find the new home you want in the Greater New Orleans area, including all of the commuting areas: Orleans St. James, St. John, St. Charles, St. Tammany and St. Bernard, Tangipahoa, Jefferson and Plaquemines Parishes.

Good Living Just Outside New Orleans Proper

Several neighboring Parishes named for Saints James, John, Charles, Tammany and Bernard, are collectively known as "The Saints" and offer delightful small town living within easy commuting distance of the city for sporting events, shopping, dining, sight-seeing or working.

All of these areas experienced an explosion in population and home ownership rates as a direct result of Hurricane Katrina.

After the storm, it was an unbelievable time for New Orleans real estate. Thousands of families were looking for new homes in the few undamaged neighborhoods of New Orleans and in neighboring Parishes.

Southeast Louisiana has never seen a housing boom such as this. These families were grabbing up all available houses as close as they could get to their devastated old communities.

They are now enjoying the benefits of these communities such as great public schools and a beautiful natural environment.

Easy Living In The Heart Of The Big Easy

If you want to live right in the heart of the city - or close enough to get to its heart in a heartbeat - an experienced New Orleans real estate agent can find homes to meet your specifications, whether it's a beautiful rebuild or a house that escaped the flood. There's something for every taste and pocketbook. For instance ...

Nothing says New Orleans! like the Vieux Carre, with its old world charm, famous Royal Street, right in the heart of the Old French Quarter.

Or how about elegance with a surprising - and somewhat edgy - back-story? Consider living in the former home of renowned author Anne Rice.

The word "elegance" may have been coined to describe the Garden District - and if it wasn't, it should've been. This beautiful area is grand and charming on historic St. Charles Avenue.

If your lifestyle is less formal and more contemporary suburban, you might consider many of the houses that are gutted and waiting for your personal renovation talents to turn it into the home of your dreams.

Hurricane Katrina created an entirely new world for real estate in New Orleans areas, and the real estate agents have worked to know all there is about the current housing market - rebuilding regulations, new public school and charter school options, qualified contractors, and buying a home in this new era.
