Not the best area but not the worst, I would still try to stay on the other side of Jeff Davis.

I would buy there (for the long term investment), but I wouldn't rent there right now, if that makes any sense.

A lot of the street views are a few years old, but I did see the "Google Streetview Mobile" driving around the other day, so hopefully they're updating everything ;-)

the rent for that address I saw online was $560 utilities included, studio apartment. If I could buy instead of rent for around that price range monthly, I'd buy too. Send me a private message if you have info. on buying property in New Orleans. Not sure what the "main" websites are for real estate for sale. Craigslist?

Lots of loitering? Street people hangin' around? Or just run down and dilipidated? I'll take the latter either way.

But yeah, that area not too good...if you've spent any time learning about New Orleans, you'll no doubt have heard that many of the richest houses are just steps from cocaine dens...this is one of those situations where a few blocks away, you'll be fine, but you're really not going to have much luck finding anything for that price in a safe neighborhood.

I'm still learning about real estate here. I wouldn't advise anyone to buy (anywhere) until they got relatively familiar with a city. There are great deals to be had here, but you need to learn about neighborhoods, higher/lower flood risk areas (and the corresponding flood insurance rates).

My husband and I have "flipped" houses before by doing light to moderate structural and cosmetic repairs (installing drywall, tile, interior and exterior paint, etc.) There are plenty of properties here that would work for us, and many that need more extensive work. We're saving up for a substantial down payment to make up for the fact that we're self-employed, so we're doing a lot of research in the meantime. Even if we could pay cash right now, I'd still be doing the research.

Look on Craigslist and nola.com for a general idea of real estate prices.
