3201 St. Charles Condos, Great location for this pretty nice complex. Changing for the Best…

     The condos at 3201 St. Charles Ave is a 71 unit complex on St. Charles Ave.  One big thing going for it is that it is a great location.  On the New Orleans Streetcar line halfway between Tulane and Loyola Universities and the FrenchQuarter.  They are moderately priced and provide a good value for what you get for your purchase.  The new Fresh Market Food Store is across the street.

     The condos are a conversion of a 1970’s  apartment complex that is under going a transformation of sorts.  At one time in New Orleans only elderly people lived in condos.  This was one such place.  It is currently changing as it offers some great value and location.  New People are buying in as the older residents move out.  There are 17 rental units and 17 second homers in the condo association. 

     When this transformation happens prices tend to rise as demand picks up.  People see the value and want to be here.  The hot segment of the market right now is the “Historic Feel Segment”  This is not what you get here.  You do get gated parking with each unit in the rear of the building.  You get a well funded condo association with a great balance sheet.  The complex is well taken care of and new things are beginning to be added.

3201 St. Charles Ave. Condos, Front Entrance

       The secure entrance open onto Saint Charles and is often manned by the maintenance person that will let you in.  The courtyard is very large with plenty of space with various sitting areas.  The pool is very inviting and great on the eyes.  Units have a storage shed in work area at each end of the complex on the first floor.  You have one and two bedroom units surrounding the courtyard.

     There are a couple of negatives.  One is that no dogs are allowed as people at one time let them roam the courtyard many years ago. The units do not have a washer and dryer inside each unit but there is a downstairs laundry.  Some owners have added them on their own over time.  An enhancement that can really pay off for resale value. The positives are moderate condo fees, great location, well managed and funded.  There is an elevator near the front entrance. 

     There are currently 3 units for sale in the building. There is a one bedroom on the second floor for 159k.  There is one 2/2 for 209 on the first floor and another on the front corner of the complex for 219.  This is one of my favorites as it has updates, wood floors, great views, updated kitchen, and plenty of closet space. 

    Its the type of place you can lock your door and come back in a couple of weeks and all will be fine.  You can have someone look after your place while you are gone.  If you want to rent part of the time the location , security, parking, and amenities are what people are looking for.  Then every person that I have meet here has been friendly and nice.
