Written by New Orleans resident and certified apartment manager Tammy Frosch Esponge, Real Estate Disasters: A Post Katrina Survival Guide for Housing, Property and Insurance Catastrophes is a vivid window of insight into the bureaucratic screw-ups, hurdles, and other problems plaguing New Orleans housing, property, and insurance owners after Hurricane Katrina--and also a spotlight on the positive efforts individuals and communities have infused in an attempt to rebuild what was lost. At times rueful, at times practical, and always informative, Real Estate Disasters examines problems from the viewpoints of both apartment owners and apartment tenants, and searches for solutions as well as pointing out problems. "Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts proposed that landlords be obliged to hire around-the-clock security if they were accepting federal housing subsidies... apart from the obvious issue that his proposal would tend to stigmatize all people on welfare as criminals, it seemed to us that there was every likelihood that the demands the councilman was making on landlords would just encourage those landlords to stop accepting federal vouchers." An absolute "must-read" for anyone dealing with housing, property, or insurance issues in today's New Orleans, and an insightful resource when preparing or coping with the fallout from property disaster anywhere else in America.
