The Marion Court Condos in Metairie on Marion Street right off Veterans behind the Barnes and Noble Book Store is a great location. The small complex of 19 units is an apartment conversion remodeled in 2004.
The unusual thing is that there is so much parking and common areas. It gives you a big feel as there are three separate buildings with balconies, courtyards and common area space.
When looking for condos in the 100k range in Metairie, location is the most important factor along with how the condo association maintains the common areas and the buildings. The 3723 has a great location and the 2004 redo is still fresh. The unit pictured below is a second floor unit priced at $115,000. There is another availiable for $98,000 on the first floor. There was a recent sale of one of the two bedroom units.
The condo H is a corner unit on the second floor that overlooks the courtyard. It is one of the few that has two designated spaces and looks very fresh. All the appliances including washer and dryer in the hallway stay with the condo. The condo is 632 sq. ft of living area. The moderate condo fess are $160 which covers insurance, exterior upkeep, water, common area upkeep. The secure entrance is by code.
The kitchen and baths were gutted during the remodel so the cabinets, appliances, tile counters, were all finished in 2004-2005. There are wood floors in the den along with crown molding and a designed paint job. Its just move right in quality. The rooms are spacious for a condo. There is a small balcony off the bedroom. The unit gets a lot of natural light and the area is very quiet with well behaved neighbors.

The Complex has recently been approved for FHA loans by Wells Fargo. This means 3.5% down and the seller can help with closing cost. Why pay rent at this price.
