SELLING NEW ORLEANS HOMES IS WHAT WE DO
We believe New Orleans homeowners should get the most from their real estate selling experience.
When selling your New Orleans home with Crescent City Living, you can feel confident that we’ll strive for top dollar results. But our experience and expertise don’t stop with the price.
PREPARING TO SELL YOUR NEW ORLEANS HOME
The work of selling your New Orleans home starts long before the sign ever gets posted in the front yard.
There is plenty of prep work involved in making a splash when you hit the market, including cleaning and decluttering and preparing for the day the professional photographer arrives to showcase your home in the best possible light. Remember the old adage “you only get one chance to make a good impression”? It’s never truer than when we launch a new listing. Paying attention to all of the details is what we do best.

Need some professional help getting your home ready? We’ve got you covered with a list of recommended handymen, contractors, painters, house cleaners, stagers…whatever it is that needs to be done ahead of time to make your home shine from day one.
TELLING YOUR STORY
As New Orleans lovers, we understand that every building has a story, and the same is definitely true for our beloved homes! When it’s time to sell, our Agents specialize in telling your story to buyers in a way that best markets your particular home.
How do we do it? Storytelling is all about dedication, narrative, culture + community. Before we list your home or market to potential buyers, we want to help you become as prepared as possible so that we get you the right price for your home––and get it right the first time.
Telling the story of your home is personal, like our relationships with our clients. We walk you through finding the right story to tell, whether it’s about the tire swing in the backyard or Miss Betty across the street that watches out for everyone’s kids or your favorite coffee shop around the corner. The things that attracted you to your home and neighborhood are likely the same things that will attract a buyer, so we’re waiting in the wings to tell your story perfectly.
PRICING YOUR NEW ORLEANS HOME
When it comes to pricing a home to sell, it’s a mix of art and science.
Fortunately, we have geeky pricing artists who are experts in helping pinpoint the right range that gets you moving within the timeframe you want.
We pride ourselves on being able to price a house right the first time, enabling our sellers to spend as little time as possible on the market.
Why? Because we know that making your bed every day and taking Fluffy for a walk every time a buyer tours your house is a pain. Our job is to minimize that pain by getting your home in front of the right buyers right away.

WHILE YOU’RE ON THE MARKET
Time spent on the market is the most stressful time for a home seller. Dealing with last-minute showing requests, worrying that everything is spic and span, hoping no one lets the cat out. It’s not easy and we know that.
There might be back to back to back showings that keep you out of the house for an entire afternoon. There may be the inconvenience of us scooching you out while we hold an open house. There’s definitely the need to leave the house looking show ready every time you step out of the door.
We’re here to make this period as stress-free as possible, but it’s important to know ahead of time that all of that cleaning and prepping will be an on-going job while you’re on the market. Unless you have a magic genie, of course.
WHEN YOU GET AN OFFER
When you receive an offer to purchase the real fun begins, but it’s also when your stress level may go off the charts.
There might be low ball offers.
There might be multiple offers.
This is where we shine! Our agents are trained in skillful negotiation in order to get the best price and terms for you. It doesn’t matter whether your goal is the highest price, the best terms, or the shortest or longest closing time. We’re here to craft a sale that checks off as many of your boxes as possible.
There may be a lot of back and forth negotiation to come to an agreement that works for both you and the buyer.
MAKING IT TO THE CLOSING TABLE
Once we’ve hammered out the details of an offer, our work getting your home sold doesn’t end.
To successfully make it to a closing, we’ll help you navigate inspections and any subsequent repairs needed. Oh, don’t forget the appraisal required by the buyer’s lender.
Coordinating schedules is the cherry on top. There are the lender, the title company, YOU, the buyer, us, and the buyer’s agent. Whew! It’s OK, this is not our first rodeo. We know how to get it all done.
