Elmwood Oaks Condos in Harahan
The Elmwood Oaks condos were built as condos almost 30 years ago. They are a short walk to all the retail and eating places on Clearview Parkway and retailers in Elmwood Shopping Center. The condos are an easy commute via Jefferson Highway or River Road. Jump on a Earhart Express for an easy commute downtown.

The condos are well maintained and managed. The association is well-financed. The condo fees are very low ranging from $216-$233 for the two bedroom units. The condo fees cover the exterior maintained, water,trash, common electricity, yard and pool upkeep. Just a lot of your money.
If these condos were in Orleans Parish 5-6 miles away they would be 275k to 300k for a condo with this many amenities. The condo fess would be about twice as much. There are 3 condos currently for sale with prices ranging from $114,900 to $135,336. Any of these buys would be cheaper than paying rent at these low-interest rates. Prices have been steady or down for a couple of years.
