Explore NOLA & West Bank

Communities

You don’t have to live in the heart of New Orleans to experience all it has to offer. Just a bridge away is the West Bank….a collection of small towns and neighborhoods winding along the banks of the river, stretching from historic Algiers Point all the way to the more rural setting of Waggaman, with loads of choices in between.

Upscale, luxury subdivisions, golf communities, National Historic Districts, acreage to spread out in. All of this and more can be found as we welcome you to the West Bank of New Orleans.

Projections for 2015

Given the rise in average prices on the East Bank, I expect that demand will grow for the more affordable real estate on the West Bank, including Algiers. While my crystal ball is broken, I project that we will see another 10% or so in increased average prices for homes in excellent condition.
