One Bedroom Homes: July 2020

 

If you’ve been wanting to buy a house, but don’t want huge upkeep or a condo – have you considered a one-bedroom home? 

One-bedroom homes are typically more affordable and have less maintenance. It gives you a chance to own your space without sharing walls too. I know people like the idea of buying a double and renting the other half. But, being a landlord is not cut out for everyone.

 

With interest rates at an all-time low, home buying might be on your mind. Let us show you the one-bedroom homes available in New Orleans this holiday weekend.

(Editor’s note: these homes are listed as active and available as of 7/3/2020)

Listed at $240k and in average condition, the one thing we know is that it will need some work. The photos show an incomplete renovation and it’s noted in the listing description.

The great stuff: The view. The downtown skyline is what you get to gaze at longingly every evening.

The good stuff: It has an efficiency unit as well that could work as a home office or guest bedroom. The roof is also brand new!

The not-as-good stuff: Because it has begun a makeover but it wasn’t completed, you going to need a renovation loan or cash.

Walking distance to Clancy’s, Patois, and Frankie & Johnnie’s have me sold on the location. This one-bedroom home is listed for $259k and is 692 square feet. 5827 Tchoupitoulas is listed in average condition as well. Meaning, it needs some updating.

 

The great stuff: The seller is motivated and will consider all offers! Between low-interest rates and a flexible price, you could make this home really awesome.

The good stuff: Foundation work was already completed and they have receipts on hand.

The not-as-good stuff: The roof is older and we all know Tchoupitoulas is a busier street.

This modern build in the Irish Channel clocks in at 978 square feet and listed for $349k.

 

The great stuff: It’s an award-winning piece of architecture!

The good stuff: The house is only 5 years young. It likely won’t require too much maintenance. Also, it was designed to maximize space. Check out that kitchen!

The not-as-good stuff: The outdoor space has me begging for a little more – I wouldn’t have any grass for my pups!
