How To Find New Orleans Real Estate

Finding New Orleans real estate through the MLS (multiple listings service) may be challenging, since rebuilding efforts can affect the values of homes and commercial properties throughout Louisiana. Property values in New Orleans can vary dramatically according to daily and weekly trends in investing. While the MLS can certainly give you detailed information on each of these properties, you need a qualified real estate agent to help you identify inflated asking prices.

Using the MLS to Find New Orleans Real Estate

When you decide to invest in New Orleans real estate, your first step should not involve getting a copy of the MLS and browsing suitable listings on your own. At Savoie Realty, our Louisiana real estate experts stress that you stick to these basic tips:

  1. Obtain a mortgage pre-approval with the lending institution of your choice. This can usually be done in 15 to 20 minutes, or even over the phone.
  2. Contact a local real estate agency in New Orleans, or in one of the surrounding parishes such as St. Tammany or St. Bernard. For example, our agents along the northern shore of Lake Pontchartrain have a lot of experience dealing with changing property values due to the rebuilding efforts.
  3. Allow the agency to search the MLS for you, using your mortgage pre-approval and a list of your exact needs to narrow your search.

Following these steps can help you to save a lot of time while you are looking for real estate in New Orleans. Check out our website for more tips on how to enter the New Orleans real estate market.
