Hi All,

I'll soon be moving to St. Tammany Parish (Covington, Madisonville or Mandeville) in new orleans, and I'd greatly appreciate any advise on apartment renting. Covington is the core area I'm looking at but any close by place will be okay.

I made my decision to move to this county based on these factors:

1. High/Low ground (with regards to flooding)

This is of real importance to me and high ground is very preferable.

2. Cost of apartments

A nice two bedroom apartment will be okay.

3. Rate of hustle and bustle

A quite area is most preferable.

4. Safety factor

High safety factor needed.

5. Environment

A nice environment

I'm looking to get a 2 bedroom and 1 or 2 bathroom apartment. I love quiet and beautiful areas and looking to spend $400 - $700 per month on rent.

I'm somewhat new to the U. S. A. and would appreciate any information I can get especially with regards to estate agents to contact, websites to visit or escaping being ripped off/deceived/cheated.

What do I need to look out for to know I've got a good bargain?

Actually all of those cities are in metro New Orleans. They're suburbs, and great places to live if one can find housing at this point in time.

Default New Orleans? or Northshore?

I'm replying because I hope you know that those places you mentioned are on the Northshore of the lake. Lake Ponchartrain is huge, it takes over twenty minutes just to cross it, then you have to go through Metairie. It's a lonnnng commute.
