New Orleans Real Estate - Market Report - River Ridge Our weekly market report takes us to the River Ridge area. This neighborhood is one of the few areas that give buyer's a slight edge. However, homes are lasting just a little over two months on the market. The one intersting not is the huge difference between days on the market sold and days on the market active. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions about the above information. Also, I'm more than happy to assist you in purchasing or selling a home should it be your service area.We will be taking a look at the following markets over the next few weeks.

New Orleans Real Estate - Market Report - River Ridge This week's market report takes us to the River Ridge Area. This is truly one of the most interesting market reports that we've done in  some time. It's a buyer's market, but not really. There are about a year's worth of homes currently available for sale, but the average days on the market is less than three months and the price per square foot sold has gone up each and every quarter. In fact, it has increased over $14/square foot in a year. That's really good. It appears that the higher priced homes are hard to sell based upon the average list price of $408,911. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions about the above information. Also, I'm more than happy to assist you in purchasing or selling a home should it be your s...

  "Condominium Living with a Townhome Style"   I recently listed this condo in River Ridge and wanted to call it a town-home.  It is a condo since it shares the common areas and was legally built as such. It is also a townhouse from an architectural stand point. So something could be both in terms of style and then its legal classification which center around the common areas and the common laws of condos. Eric, why not call it "Condominium Living with a Townhome Style" and market it that way?  Seems to me that would be good, no?  Good luck and thanks again.  kevincavanaughonline.com. The neat thing about Active Rain is that other agents will share their ideas with you as Kevin has, Thanks Kevin!     The other odd thing about the property is the amount of common area that was lelf by th...

This is a great area and has been for 20 years. There are few condos in River Ridge but Steamship Circle was reserved for condo developements. The area is primarily residential but is near a lot of things. I sold this condo about 8 years ago and recently listed it. It looks much better than when I sold it Yoni and Kathy. You can get a overall view of the area by viewing the Steamship neighborhood. 2836 Steamship Circle Condo Unit CRiiver Ridge, La. 70123$179,625  Townhouse Style Condo in River Ridge         The 2836 River Ridge Condo is a 15 unit complex that were built as condos rather than an apartment conversion.

    Tucked in the corner of River Ridge on a quiet circle are 6-8 individual condo complexs of units in clusters of 4,6,8,12, and 16 units. Its a great plce to live. You are an easy commute to Elmwood Business Park, Oshner Hospital, River Ridge, Harahan and but 20 minutes to the New Orleans CBD. Most of the units are 2 bedroom units that continue to appreciate due to the location. Close to shopping, eating places, city parks, Zephyr Stadium are all pluses. The taxes in this are are very low. The taxes on the unit below is about one thousand per year with very low condo fees. The units are varied in size and condition. The units generally sell within week and this has been over a 10 year period. Look into the Jefferson Parish Bond money program for a 4% gift and a rate below 6% if you ma...

Located along the Mississippi River upriver from New Orleans, River Ridge offers a tranquil lifestyle with an easy commuteto downtown and Metairie. The area is known for its large trees and many large lots. The area has no industry or jobs, its just a great place to live. I listed this home today and as I do with all my listings I make a separate page on the website to give a better look at the property and the area. I always make flyers and advertise the New Orleans Real Estate site on the rear of the flyers with some extra photos to stimulate interst. I never put the price as I want the shoppers to visit. I am going to blog about the listings also. I am hoping to google this address next week and see the page and active rains page on the property also. i do these things because they w...

Mardi Gras season is upon us in South Louisiana and people like to decorate their homes. This home is not too far from where i live and it caught my eye this morning. These guys are in the spirit. This River Ridge Acadian style home besides have some great Spring time plants already is getting ready for Fat Tuesday which is a week form tommorow. They more than likely will decorate for Easter. Not many other places decorate like people do down here. More than likey they are getting ready for a party since there hasnt been any since the Super Bowl, Saints NFC game, New Years, and Christmas. At least a couple per month. Will have more as the parades get going this week.

                       Steamship Circle River Ridge CondosRiver Ridge, La 70123The Steamship Circle area of River Ridge is a collection of Condos that have been very popular due to location. Its very close to Elmwood Business Park, close to Oschner, easy commute to the New Orleans CBD. Its a short drive to the Zyphers ball park on Airline Park. The condos are in complexes of 4, 5, 8, 16 and 20. All have been fairly well maintained and have shown great appreciation. Most of the condos are two bedroom townhouse style but there are a couple of one bedroom units. Pictured below are some of the examples you will see in the area of Harahan and River Ridge. Most of the units are in the 20 year old range and many have been updated. It looks more like a collection of small townhomes.  This is an...
