Metaire Real Estate Areas

 Metairie , area 14


This area between W. Esplanade and the lake is prime Metairie real estate. The value trend is to get more expensive as you move from Kenner and towards  Causeway. Getting closer to the lake generally means a more expensive location. The average age of a home is this area is 30 to 40 years old. You will pay for a larger yard. The commute time to anywhere in Metairie is minimal and a 30-40 minute commute to the CBD. Prices start at about 200k for a dated home. The subdivisions are hard to distinguish from each other. The public and private schools are listed below. The ground is expensive here.

Lakeside and the Esplanade mall are close. East Jefferson hospital is across the street. Veterans Blvd., your downtown street of Metairie is also close. Lake access is in Kenner and from the Bonnabel boat launch in area 18.
Area is 99% residential except for churches, playgrounds and schools. Values continue to rise due to location. New homes are far and few between. Taxes are low, crime is low, schools are good, and many of the houses need updating.
You will get the money back if you do the correct things, ask Eric what they are?

 Metairie is a large unincorporated area which surrounds Harahan on three sides, and sits between Orleans Parish, Kenner, and the Mississippi river. Though once mostly residential, the area has built up a healthy business center in recent years. One of it´s claims to fame is the longest bridge over water in the world, the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway. The Causeway connects Metairie with St. Tammany Parish on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. Technically, Lake Pontchartrain is not a lake at all, but an estuary with a large salt-water content. It has 610 square miles and is joined with the Mississippi Sound. It is the largest inland estuary in the United States. The Lake is a popular birdwatching area with places set aside for the fans to watch the birds. The Purple Martins fly in huge formations during the summer months, peaking during July.
 Metairie is not a city and has no mayor or local government of its own. As part of Jefferson Parish, Metairie is governed by the Jefferson Parish Council.  Metairie Ridge was once incorporated as a city  for approximately 17 years  in order to allow the area to obtain gas service. In 1927 its one and only Mayor, C.P. Aicklen, arranged for gas service to Metairie. However, less than 18 months later, Metairie Ridge was unincorporated and Metairie has existed as an unincorporated area (with gas service) ever since. Over 68,000 friendly families or approximately 165,000 people live in Metairie\'s five zip codes (70001, 70002, 70003, 70005 and 70006). Jefferson Parish has many cities, including the Cities of Kenner,Harahan, Gretna, and Grand Isle. Metairie, the heart of Jefferson Parish, forms a part of the Greater New Orleans metropolitan area and is technically an unincorporated part of Jefferson Parish, Louisiana. Metairie residents have no mayor and no City taxes,but still pay Parish taxes. Unlike the other 49 states, Louisiana, due to its French heritage, has parishes rather than counties.
