This Years New Orleans Parade of Homes Will Be Both Live and Virtual

Each year the Home Builders Association of Greater New Orleans (HBAGNO) hosts the Parade of Homes. This is said to be the biggest official showcase of homes and their latest designs and floor plans in the Greater New Orleans area. Patrons who attend the 2021 Parade of Homes can tour homes in person or via 3D virtual tours.

The Parade of Home is a great way to be introduced to the latest in home design and innovations in building construction and industry trends. Learn and get expert advice from locally trusted builders, designers, lenders and real estate professionals. This year these will include adaptable and multi-purpose layouts, cozy vacation living, combined open-air living spaces, lighting and plumbing finishes, and the newest trends for 2021.

The Parade of Homes will include homes in Lakeview, Bucktown, Colonial Club, Metairie, English Turn, Louisiana Trace, Parks of Plaquemines, Gabriel Estates, Shrewsbury, Algiers Point, and Sugar Ridge in Thibodaux. This year there will be a total of 19 homes that can be toured in person or seen virtually via Matterport’s innovative 3D virtual tour technology. This is the latest app for the Parade of Homes. The app includes all the parade of homes and you can do a 360 tour of each room of each home.

“This year’s in-home and 3D virtual Parade offers a variety of homes in neighborhoods that reflect the diverse tastes and budgets of all potential homebuyers in our community,” said Mary Kelly of Ferguson Enterprises and Chair of the 2021 Parade of Homes. “After a year of missing the company of loved ones, working remotely and homeschooling children, home builders are creating plans with additional space for home offices, playrooms, and entertaining. We are excited and proud to once again showcase the work of our area’s most innovative builders, subcontractors, and vendors who provide inspiration while building strong relationships in the communities in which they serve.”

Visitors will be safe as the Parade of Homes will follow the CDC and governmental guidelines. HBAGNO will provide hand sanitizer and will sanitize frequently touched areas throughout the day. Proceeds will help support St. Jude Dream Home this year.

Algiers Point Real Estate Changes in the Last Few Years

Algiers Point is the second oldest neighborhood in the City of New Orleans. Known as the Point by locals, this area of New Orleans offers affordable housing. It is a quiet and quaint neighborhood with the small-town charm just a ferry ride away from downtown.

Algiers Point is across the Mississippi River from downtown. The Point is known for its beautiful Victorian historic homes. Residents and visitors describe it is like stepping back in time to the 1800s. You can see Victorian double shotgun homes as well as Craftsman shotguns and bungalows.

Algiers Point has seen a drastic increase in real estate activity in the past few years. The median sales price rose from $164,318 to $348,335 between 2012 and 2018 in the U.S. In Algiers, there has been a steady price increase since 2011. In 2018 the median sales price in Algiers was $181,776 which is affordable compared to its neighboring community the Garden District which had a median sales price of $510,584 in 2018.

“For the new folks, it’s really just kind of the affordability of the community that makes sense,” said Kelsey Foster, head of the Algiers Economic Development Foundation. Once new subdivisions started popping up, “that raised our population, and the average median income. And that immediately changes the calculation for grocery stores, restaurants and retail.”
