Is there much new residential construction available in the New Orleans area?

  • There are at least a few new homes on the market in most areas of the metro area.
  • New Orleans and East Jefferson offer the fewest choices for never occupied homes. Both areas are surrounded by water, so there is very little undeveloped land available for new construction. For the most part, new homes are properties in Lakeview and New Orleans East rebuilt since Hurricane Katrina. In other cases, older homes have been demolished to reclaim the land. The Kenner lakefront area does have some tracts under development in Gabriel, Louisiana Trace and Southlake Villages.
  • On the North Shore, there are many newly constructed homes to choose from.
