New Orleans French Quarter Condos, 1228 Royal Street-Weekend Retreat.

     The sales and interest in the French Quarter have begun to pick up in the last 8-10 weeks.  The better units are beginning to sell.  There has been a lull in sales since Katrina as many of the condos are used for second homes and weekend retreats for the locals.  Now people are looking again as the prices have moderated. 

       The Condo unit #7 we just listed is one that is priced right and ready to be sold.  There are 6 units under 200k with a minimum of 500 sq. ft., getting below this number you are getting a motel room sized unit.  None are on one of the Quarters most famous streets as is this one.  Everyone knows you will not buy the first one you see but this one should be seen and shown.  It may fit your needs! 

 French Quarter Condos

    The 1228 Royal Street Condo Unit #7 is a ground floor unit down a historic alley on the first floor of this French Quarter Condo.  You expect to pay much more for balcony units.  You are on the quiet end of the street but a very short walk to all that the Quarter has to offer in terms of history, eating and drinking.  This is a condo association that has a nice courtyard with pool and laundry facilities.  Having a pool is not the norm. 

    Having a pool to take a dip after a morning walk would be great.  Enjoy your time in New Orleans by parking your car and walking for however long you may want to stay and sweat this time of year.

     The condo has high ceiling and exposed brick wall separating the bedroom to the living area.  The unit has plenty of storage lockers.  There is even a loft for guests and kids willing to climb the latter.  The 604 sq. ft size is large for a units selling for below 200k.  The condo fees are $222 which is moderate.  There are 8 other units that will share the cost of the common areas.  The bedroom is large also.  Its a great retreat in one of the most historic areas of the United States.

    This condo is co-listed with Lana Sackett and is easy to show.  It currently has a tenant living in the unit.  The unit is easy to rent if you have a period of time that you are not using the unit.  Renting your condo for a month or two can pay your condo dues for a year.  That is the value of owning in a place that is hard to duplicate.  Going as a corporate rental you can get even more.  Just a thought as an investment angle. 

     Take time to visit the sites of the French Quarter that I have taken over the past couple of years.  One thing we all notice is how clean the French Quarter has become.  The more you come the more you realise that the Quarter is much more than Bourbon Street. French Quarter Photos by Eric.
