If you're looking for a house, apartment, or commercial property in New Orleans and you're finding everything is too expensive or the best stuff seems to be gone before you get there - this show is for you. Each week New Orleans real estate broker Ariana Tipper selects her favorite NOLA properties that haven't come on the market yet and gives listeners a chance to be first in before they're listed. If you're wondering how you're ever going to get that place you're looking for, well, now you're hooked up. As Ariana says, "Think of this as the Match.com or Tinder of real estate."
Holy Cross is an appropriate neighborhood to find a great deal in this Lenten season. Andy introduces a great property in Holy Cross and properties in Mid City and Uptown. The interesting theme of this show is the combination of New Orleans architectural beauty being retained in renovations that include modern energy efficiencies. If you're so tired of not finding anything you like or can afford that you've given up looking at properties for Lent, time to check out this episode of Unlisted NOLA.
Bev is selling a 2,000 square foot double in Mid City. One side is furnished and ready to rent out to, as Bev describes them, "folks who want to come here for a month or two, but you could take all the furntiure and put it in the spare building on the property that could also be a studio or work space. As Bev says, "Five blocks from the bayou, five blocks from City Park, you can't beat it." Bev's going to list this property at $444k.
Bonnie is an architect. She bought a property on Banks St in Mid City but couldn't save it so she demolished it but kept all the original pieces she could, including doors, windows, bookcases and clawfoot tub, and incorporated them into a ground-up, all new construction that retains the arts and crafts elements of historic New Orleans. Near the cemetery and streetcar line, this 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home has a balcony overlooking Banks Street and off street parking. If you get in now you can have this house finished in the colors and with other finishes you want. If this sounds like you, jump on this one. Bonnie is going to list it at $439k.

Jared is making a return trip to Unlisted NOLA, this time with a great deal in Holy Cross: an 1,800 square foot single family home that could be converted to a double if you want, and is also able to be zoned commercial. So you could live and work here in a historic neighborhood, in a home that's preserved historically but has 100% new air, electric, and everything else to make it 21st Century fab. On a corner lot with a big yard. Jared intends to list this at $299k. It's Lent, maybe your Holy Cross prayers have been answered.
