I can say with first hand knowledge that with the Saints having several playoff games has greatly increased the interest in buying in the Warehouse District in particular. I have been showing several clients who want second homes where they can come to New Orleans for the games and to enjoy what the City of New Orleans has to offer. They all expressed an interest in living in the area on a part time basis.
Most of the press has been very positive for the City of New Orleans and the fan base that extends along the gulf coast and all of South Louisiana. They enjoy the people and the lifestyle. It is totally different from where they are coming from. I have clients from New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Texas and other states as well. Maybe everyone does not want to live by the beach in Florida.
Now if the local politicians could begin to court these clients as well with upgrades to the infrastructure. These are great tax paying clients that will take part in the rebuilding of downtown New Orleans. It ends up helping everyone and gives us many more helpers plus the cash. Maybe the next Mayor will see this as a positive and push for the changes that are needed.
All ask “what does the future holds for the city” Maybe the Saints are light a fire under someone to see the light for growth and the new blood that will make the entire area a better place to live. Enough of the editorial !
Let’s enjoy the ride until the game in Miami as we are still playing when we are usually talking about a high first round draft choice. Can you think of all the hours upon hours of Saints talk with Buddy Dilberto and Hap Glaudi about when the Saints go to the Super Bowl.
Its Here ! Geaux Saints !! Win !!!
