St. Charles Avenue between the interstate and Napoleon has a bunch of smaller apartment buildings.

I've been surprised to notice on CL that their are more affordable rentals in the Uptown area rather than Bywater/Marigny. Is that because there are fewer one bedroom apartments in the area?

The Marigny has been expensive for quite some time and the Bywater has become so "hip" that I guess people will pay a lot to live there and experience "the vibe". Uptown rentals might seem cheaper but that might be because they are not in good areas since Uptown is such a large and varying area.

Okay, so a relocation to NOLA is all but confirmed. We will looking to move into a new place on August 1st and plan to spend the last week of June in town looking for a place. For those who have looked in the past, does their tend to be a lot of availabilities at that time? Is five weeks out a good time to search and would we be able to find a place within five days?

We're planning to perhaps schedule appointments from CL before and while there scout out the areas we are interested in looking for "For Rent" signs.

Good luck to you my friends.

You are arriving at the HOT time of year for rentals. And I don't mean the weather. Students swarm like locusts armed with their parent's checkbooks. I started looking a few weeks ago and I have already been scooped on three places in uptown. School starts in August and lots of leases turn over in May, June and July. Its very much first come first served. Don't be surprised if people who view the apartment at the same time as you do so with cash in hand for their kid.

Here is my advice. Find an apartment building like American Can, 1201 Canal, etc., and rent there on a short term lease (6mos). You can get a small unit at most places for around 1100 and utls are often included. Spend a few months getting to know the area and THEN spend time looking for a more permanent place. It will be much less painful.

And Craigslist is a joke. Really, the best places here are by word of mouth or signs that sit on porches. EVERYONE looks at CL (me included) and places go fast. If you target an area once you are more familiar, I guarantee you will get a better deal and be happier.
