I’m Joe Gerrity, local businessman, investor and Real Estate Broker. For my “Yo Joe!” column, I’ll be answering your real estate questions as well as providing market information and housing statistics.
I believe the main responsibilities of a Realtor are to add value and facilitate mutually beneficial transactions, and through this column I hope to help the New Orleans community make more informed decisions about their housing future.
Yo Joe! The weather is heating up. How about the Uptown New Orleans housing market?
Similar to the weather: it’s getting hot! When the numbers were finalized, this was actually the busiest April since 2010 — an interesting observation, considering how many people speculate that the local housing market is slowing down. Additionally, April 2019 was the sixth busiest individual month for multifamily home sales in the past 10 years.
