ABSOLUTE AUCTION – Whether you are a future homeowner, builder, Non-Profit organization, or an investor, this is your opportunity to bid on 125± homes and residential lots located throughout the New Orleans area.  All properties sell Absolute to the highest bidder!
The properties are located in many neighborhoods in New Orleans including Bywater, Broadmoor, Central City, Mid-City, Lakeview, West End, Holy Cross, Treme, Bayou St. John, Fairgrounds, and many others. Be sure to inspect each property before bidding and be prepared to close your purchase within the required 30-day closing period.  All properties are sold in “As-Is, Where-Is” condition.

There are two Mid-City properties: No. 145 an empty lot at 726 S. Gayoso and No. 146, 515 South Hennessey.

The New Orleans Redevelopment Authority (NORA), in its effort to catalyze neighborhood redevelopment, will auction a number of Road Home and NORA-owned properties in Orleans Parish.  The single day, live auction is intended to complement continuing neighborhood recovery and to respect the uniqueness of New Orleans’ neighborhoods. The properties included in the auction are generally located in neighborhoods that have seen strong redevelopment following the storm.  The sale of these properties in these neighborhoods will strengthen an already strong private real estate market.
All properties were screened for Lot Next Door eligibility and offered to the Lot Next Door eligible neighbors where they exist. Winning bidders will agree to rehab or complete construction on the property within 12 months (365 days) and keep it code compliant and free from blight.  Bidders may also utilize the property for green space if they are a directly adjacent property owner.
Additional properties with unusual characteristics and in high demand for redevelopment are also included in the auction. For a complete list of properties of historic significance, see “Property Auction List” and “Catalogs” for details.
