River Ridge Condos, Steamship Circle- Another New Orleans Condo choice

     The New Orleans Condo market has condos in areas where people like to live outside the city of NewOrleans.  There are not a lot of condos in River Ridge which is in Jefferson Parish.  The Steamship Circle was developed for condos and currently has about 7 to 8 condo associations in the Steamship Circle area.  The area is a high demand area next to River Ridge homes, Elmwood Business Park and near the entrance to Earhardt Expressway which is about 15 minutes to town.  The prices will vary for 140’s to the 180’s range for a two bedroom unit. There are much fewer one bedroom units.  This 2836 Steamship Condo  is priced at $179,625.

     This is an example of a current listing that I have at 2836 Steamship Circle in the River Ridge area. The  2836 Steamship Circle is in one of the best complexes.  Parking is easy.  Many long time residents love living in the tree shaded area of River Ridge.  There are 20 units in this complex with all being townhouse style condos with large bedrooms, plenty of closet space, easy layout, fireplace,  patios in rear, vaulted ceilings in bedrooms,  and below average condo fees of $150 per month.  The large rooms and windows let in plenty of natural light giving the rooms an even larger feel.

     These condos are not new but have been kept up extremely well over the past 20 years.  The area has appreciated very well over the years.  This unit has a loft which can be used for an office or storage.  The second bedroom has a large picture window overlooking the private patio that is fenced in from the public.

     This unit has 1600 plus sq.ft of living area.  The condo fees are very low since the units are self managed and have been taken care of over the years.  All the units have fireplaces and are all electric.  They seem to be very energy efficient with a new a/c and being shaded by trees in the hot New Orleans summers does help.

     The living room and dining are is large and the kitchen is large enough to have an eating area in the kitchen.  This unit has two designated parking spots in front of the unit. There are even some visitor spots left.  The kitchens are also large.  All the bedrooms are upstairs.  Just a nice place to live.


     This is an example of one of the better units in the area. I will update the other units over time.  There are never a lot of town-homes for sale in the area which always keeps values steady.  In most cases upgrades can be made to the units and you will get your money back and more if the proper things are done to the units.  

 If your condo is in an area like River Ridge your condo appreciates along with the homes.  =5;’/
