re: What is your opinion on the gentrification of N.O.? - gorillaballin
I'm a millennial, bought a double uptown in 2012 that needed a huge renovation. The older couple who had lived there for 20+ years let it go to shite so it needed basically everything but I was up for it. They bought a house with a pool out in Harvey for what I paid for their dilapidated property, ...

re: Thoughts on real estate as a profession - gorillaballin
Commercial appraisal is in high demand if you want to work your arse off. You will get paid for working your arse off though. Get a finance degree and jump in. Average age practicing is like 57 now so demand will keep going up as older guys retire. It's not a career a lot of people think about when...

re: Jeep Grand Cherokee OR Toyota 4Runner - gorillaballin
Bought my '13 JGC Overland new and have almost 32k on it. Zero problems thus far. It's my first American car (previously drove a Tundra to 125k) so I bought an extended warranty to 75k miles. If you want the Jeep but also want reassurance, buy the warranty. It bumped up my monthly note by like $...

re: Moving to NOLA. I come to the only place that can give it to me straight. - gorillaballin
[quote]Single, no kids.[/quote] I'm in the same situation and have lived uptown for the past few years. I prefer having a yard and not having to take an elevator to my apt, pay for parking, etc. Whs district is fun but you'll get more bang for your buck renting uptown. I have a ten minute comm...

re: "Covington like up-town New Orleans without the gun-fire" - gorillaballin
[quote]How can you disagree? [/quote] Because a very, very small portion of downtown Covington is walkable. Just about everyone is living amongst the sprawl in places like Tchefuncte CC, Covington CC, Barker's Corner, etc, etc... None of those subdivisions are remotely walkable. Pretty much...

[quote]Did you watch the video?[/quote] I did. I'm just saying that I disagree. I can truly speak from both sides. Edit: I also agree with the point about NS kids not knowing the bad areas. I came over here for Mardi Gras in HS and college and didn't know bad from good really. Nothing ever...

re: LA Fitness or Equivalent in NOLA? - gorillaballin
JCC Uptown is solid and has courts. I'm not Jewish and most of the members aren't - it's more of a community center. Tulane and Loyola have good facilities from what I hear as well Edit: J-Club has towel service...

re: Cost to insulate my house? - gorillaballin
I have an old shotgun double uptown and deal with this same issue. Insulation in the attic but nowhere else. The reason I've avoided spray insulation is that I've heard some horror stories about it trapping moisture and rotting out walls. Does anyone know if there's any truth in that?...
