Things to consider before buying a New Orleans home

Before buying a New Orleans home

 

I know. You LOVE living in New Orleans. Now you want to buy your very own New Orleans home! there are things to consider before buying a New Orleans home!

 

Termites

Team Be New Orleans hasn’t done inspections on a house yet (unless it’s brand new) that didn’t have some sort of termite damage. It is what it is. That’s why we have home inspections to tell us how bad this damage is and if it’s compromising the structural integrity of the house.

 

Neighborhoods

Well, you’re on the right website if you’re looking for a New Orleans neighborhood to call home! If you’re looking into areas you aren’t as familiar with, go take a drive around. Get a feel for the area. This is potentially where you’re going to be living for a while and you need to love where you live! If you’re not sure what would be a good fit – take our neighborhood quiz.

 

Flood Insurance

Some New Orleans homes are located in very desirable flood zones – X & B. Other homes are located in the less desirable areas of flood zone A & AE.

 

Property Taxes

Property taxes are going to play an important role in how much your monthly note is. The more expensive the home, the more expensive your taxes will be. Have your New Orleans real estate agent and local lender look into that for you.

 

Old Homes

We have 100+-year-old homes in New Orleans. These older houses come with older house problems. So, while you LOVE the look of them, we want to make sure you know what you’re getting into.
