Old Jefferson 70121 Area 27
|Old Jefferson is an older area of East Jefferson with most homes being built in the late 1930's to the mid 1950's. Most of the homes closer to Oschner are raised cottages dating to the early 1940's. The demand of the area is due to being close in, and rising property values uptown, Oschner hospital, and the development of Elmwood business park. Most of the house were around 1000 sq. ft. with 2 bedrooms and one bath, many have been added onto but the average size house remains small. the most identifiable subdivision is Rio Vista. The more original a house, the more valuable. The average prices for homes in the area is 130-160 range with some above and some below this figure. Convenient to town with low property taxes and low crime. Easy access to all areas by using River road, Jefferson highway, Earhart extension and Airline highway. The area is not large in size and is mixed with commercial so there will never be a lot of homes for sale. The River side is going to be more expensive as there is only 3-4 blocks.|

Short commute to uptown, downtown, Oschner , LSU and Tulane med schools, Metairie and to the west bank via the Huey P. Long Bridge.
