"Is New Orleans the new San Francisco?" asks Jan Ramsey, Offbeat Magazine's publisher, editor-in-chief, and self-described pot-stirrer, noting the tech/start-up influx and real estate boom. "Being a real estate junkie, I'm constantly looking at properties around the city, renovating them in my mind. Last week, I noticed a small house just around the corner from us was on the market for $419,000. Now, it's only 1,700 square feet, it's a nice renovation, and it's in Central City. Priced over $400K?? My jaw dropped." [Offbeat]
