Home Buyer Resources

Home Buyer Resources

An experienced Real Estate Advisor is your best resource when looking for a home.   They have access to data & information that may not be immediately available online - as easy as some sites make it seem.  A Realtor will also be able to help identify some possible alternatives that you may not have considered - something that may fit more of the wish list items than you think possible - from considering expanding the geographic area of your search to considering various types of housing (condos, townhomes or multi-family as opposed to single family).

We have a select list of helpful Home Buying guides and tips that you may consider printing and sharing with your Realtor before starting a search.   When you are ready to start the search process, contact Engel & Völkers New Orleans by phone (+1 504-875-3555) or e-mail neworleans@evusa.com or submit the contact form on our website.   

See below for a set of short videos from our partners at Realtor.com outlining the process, debunking some myths, explaining the closing process and understanding the importance of clearly identifying your goals and when trading off wants vs needs is important.
