The Great Neighborhood Sellabration is an annual homebuyer fair that promotes homeownership in historic New Orleans neighborhoods by providing prospective homebuyers with the tools they need to find, purchase, and renovate a historic home. If you are ready to learn how you can own your own historic New Orleans home, join us atSellabration to begin your journey!
Unlike other homebuyer fairs, Great Neighborhood Sellabration focuses on the historic neighborhoods that make New Orleans unique. Residents of New Orleans’ historic neighborhoods will be available to answer questions about life in their neighborhoods so that homebuyers can make the most informed decision possible. Realtors, lenders, and contractors will also be available to answer questions and provide information. Each event attendee will receive a resource booklet on buying and renovating in New Orleans.
