We bought this inherited Metairie rental property

If your selling your house in Metairie then we would love to make you an offer. We buy houses in Metairie regularly and love to do rehab projects there. This this inherited house in Metairie had a tenant in there for 26 years. While it wasn’t in terrible shape, everything needed to be updated before it would be ready to sell to a home owner. The heir didn’t want to do that rehab themselves so decided to just sell in AS IS condition.

You can see the video of our Founder Aussie Steve showing the property or read the transcript below.

“Hey guys, Aussie Steve here from Home By Louisiana. We Buy Houses in any condition in Louisiana. I’m here at a house we just closed on. I just left the closing and came straight here. We’re in Jefferson Parish, in Metairie. This property came to us as an inherited property. Unfortunately, the seller’s wife had passed away. This house had been a rental for 26 years, with a friend living in it. The seller was specific about selling it and even put the tenant in a trust.

We dealt with the estate, which had an independent administrator and some family members involved. They wanted to sell the property without fixing it up. Many people looked at this property, including us, but the sellers appreciated our straightforward approach. We were able to offer a number that worked for them, and we closed in about 20 days. They liked that they could sell the house fast without needing to clean up or fix anything.

The location in Metairie is nice, but the house needs renovation. The kitchen and bathroom, in particular, haven’t been updated in decades. While there’s nothing majorly wrong with the property, it’s very dated. It’s far from being ready for any home buyer or realtor to purchase. We’ll have to update pretty much everything to bring it up to standard.

The sellers just didn’t want to spend the time, money, and effort to fix it up. They preferred to sell it in its current condition to us. This will be a great renovation project, and it’ll look really nice when done. If you have a property like this, whether inherited or sitting on it for a while, we’re interested. We buy vacant properties, properties with tenants, and we do a lot of rentals and flipping.

If your house is beautiful and ready for a homeowner, we’re not your best buyers. We highly recommend using a realtor in that case. But if your house needs updates and you don’t want to deal with them, we can give you an all-cash offer. Renovating houses can be rewarding but challenging and expensive. We do this for a living, so we’re efficient at it. Selling as-is can be worth it, especially when you consider the time and effort of doing a renovation.

If you’re interested in this option, reach out to us. We’re happy to give you an offer, and if it works for you, great. If not, that’s fine too. We’re happy to provide you with an option. Cheers guys! Check out our website,, and we’d love to chat with you about your property. Thank you.”


So you if you know anyone selling a house in a house in Louisiana let them know that we are buying. We are particularly focused on buying houses in Baton Rouge, The Northshore, Greater New Orleans and the Westbank at the moment.
