Big House, Little House…Some Neighborhoods Have it All

West Bank Real Estate

Zoning, or lack of, can result in vastly different homes in the same neighborhood, especially in older areas in and around the West Bank of New Orleans.

In Belle Chasse, you’ll find some beautiful, newer homes just down the street from trailers.  In Gretna, you’ll find huge turn of the century houses down the block from single shotguns.

I was driving through Nine Mile Point recently and did a double take when I saw these two homes next to each other.

Why you want to research a neighborhood

This is why, despite the wonders of the internet, despite the ability to tour homes without ever taking off your jammies…we still recommend that you take the time to drive through the neighborhoods you like most. Don’t just rely on the photos of a property. They’ll never show you this.
