Krewe of Rex ParadeFeb. 26,2020Watched on Napoleon Avenue for 30 plus years        Free Views of very great parades during Mardi Gras. Great things for second home condo owners to do with family and friends. I have watched this parade with my kids for about 35 years ago on Napoleon Avenue. Great to bring chairs and eats to watch the parades and marchers for 3-5 hours. There are more families that watch the parades this century.             A Variety of marchers and bands between the floats. There are different floats each and every year with a few the same ones. Music and Colorful Views every few minutes.

Magazine Street, New Orleans       There are so many condos in New Orleans that are within easy walking distance of Magazine.  People like to walk around to shop, eat and drink.

The Bywater Neighborhood of New Orleans Historic and Colorful Bywater Homes     The Bywater Neighborhood runs along the Mississippi River From the railroad tracks on Press Street to the Industrial Canal. The St. Claude Avenue to the Mississippi River is the other boundary. When I was in high school the area was known as the Upper Ninth Ward. The local telephone exchange was known as Bwater and was changed to the Bywater.        The area has become to be a home for many artistic people. Its an easy bike ride, walk or jog to the French Quarter. The area is an historic district so home have to match the historic neighborhood. The new ones and those that have been remodeled are required to be historic in design to fit the neighborhood.     At one time the area was home to people that worke...

Listing Your CondoWith an Experienced Agents Means a LotEric has sold over 200 UnitsExposure of the Condo ! Take Good Photos     I take a lot of nice photos of the condo and the complex. I write some of the things people like on the photos so they will know the positives. Best to take photos of all the positive common areas. It is also OK to take photos of the nearby neighborhood. Many people who look at condos in New Orleans may be buying them as second homes. That is why the common areas and neighborhoods help.      I write some of the more positive issues of the condo on the photo. Best to write the one best for a particular photo. Buyers can see these easily.       Recently started putting the flyers, blogs and pages of the listings on Facebook as I have about 17,000 friends that se...

1020 Esplanade Avenue Condos French Quarter Condos Formally "Italian Hall"       The 1020 Esplande Condos that has 24 units spread over 3 floors in the main building and more surrounding the courtyard.  This was once an Italian Hall for Italian immigrants that settled in this area of town. Converted to condos in the 1990's.      A couple of thing separates this condo complex from many in the French Quarter. The units have parking in a gated lot about 100ft. from the back door on Baracks and N. Rampart. The nicest feature is the large common area that has a pool, fountain, open space,an outdoor kitchen and that tropical feel.       Many of  the units are of different floor plans and sizes.

Jackson Avenue CondosEdge of Garden District    There are a number of Condos on Jackson Avenue between Magazine Street and St. Charles Avenue. This makes it an easy walk to Magazine Street and St. Charles Avenue. There are several on Prytania Street near the intersection of Jackson Avenue. I call most of these neighborhood  condos as they are surrounded by residential homes on the edge of the Garden District. 1450 Jackson Avenue Historic Condos    1441 Jackson Avenue,Corner of Prytania1436 Jackson Avenue Condos, 5 Stories, Large Units1430 Jackson Ave., More Recent Conversion1129 Jackson Avenue Townhome Condos, Near MagazineCorner of Jackson Ave. and Constance Street1002 Jackson Avenue, Corner of Constance.

Walk to the French QuarterIt's an Easy WalkFrom Warehouse District      It is an easy walk from almost any area in the Warehouse District to the next neighborhood down river, The French Quarter. The French Quarter starts one block from Canal Street. One of the nicest walks is to walk to the Convention Center then to the Outlet Mall along the Mississippi River.      Walking is free and good for your health. That is one of the reasons these areas make great places for second homes. Turn the TV off and go for a walk down the Riverwalk and Waldenberg Park to the French Quarter. Always something new to see, eat and drink. Take the River Front Streetcar Line if You Ain't WalkingSpanish Plaza by the Outlet Collection At RiverwalkThe Audubon AquariumJax Brewery Shopping and CondosRiver Traffic ...
