This cottage-style home on a corner lot is in Marrero, La., roughly 18 miles south of the French Quarter.

Built in 2005, it has three bedrooms, two baths and totals 1,541 square feet. "It has a lot of light, a lot of windows," says Jeannie Wildey, Realtor with Re/Max Real Estate Partners Inc. in Jefferson Parish, La.

The eat-in kitchen has "a lot of cabinets, ceramic tile floors, a pantry and a breakfast bar -- adjacent to a sunny, tiled dining area," she says.

The master suite features a bathroom with a garden tub and separate shower.

The home also has a second driveway for a boat, plus a storage shed, she says.

The national median of $176,800 is also a "typical price for the area," Wildey says. In the $175,000 to $178,000 price range, buyers are often looking for starter homes, she says.
