I'm split between two condos - one is located at Jackson & Magazine and the other at Napoleon and St. Charles. Any advice? Also, any other housing suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to keep my housing expenses below $1500. Thanks!

Great area. If you like to shop, then Magazine street is definitely the place for you! It's hard to go wrong in that area.

Default Re:Moving to NOLA need help ASAP

Both areas are good spots. I would choose St.Charles and Napoleon because of the street car. You can use it to go to Audubon Park or to check out a concert at Tulane or Loyola University which are on St.Charles. I am not on this site often so you can email me @sisterlove808@hotmail, if you have more questions.

Thank you for your replies. My major concern is the cost - they are both $1650/month. That just seems really high. Is this normal for NOLA?

Anything nice in NOLA is going to run you at least $1000 a month until the housing options get larger. I'm not sure, but you might be able to do a little better on the price in those areas. It couldn't hurt to shop around a little more, unless you are in a hurry, of course.

Rentals in New Orleans are still on the pricier side (at least compared to what cost-of-living sites would have me believe). A nice 1 BR/BA's condo/gated apartment will run you in the 1100-1300 range, 2 BR/BA's maybe up towards that 1600-2000 range. The rent data may seem a bit skewed, as there are a great number of people renting half-double shotgun apartments, which run considerably cheaper than a complex (of course, I'm guessing at this as the reason; it's possible pre-Katrina data is also floating around).

If you're set on living in-city, then those are very nice spots to be. If you have the capability to temp-live in town for a bit (via job relocation package, extended stay, etc.), it's possible to rent from non-managed places for a bit cheaper. There are a lot of people who rent out shotgun houses as apartments, that you could get in a decent area for 800-1000 1BR/BA, 1200-1400 2BR/BA. At least, this has been my experience in house-hunting.

If you're willing to be outside of the city, there is plenty you can find for less in Metaire, and even more on the Northshore (though you trade off that price with a long commute).

Default Apartments in Metairie

My daughter will be doing a college internship in the French Quarter from October - February. There are several short term lease apartments in Metairie for less than $650. Is anyone familiar with Park Oaks or Turtle Creek? How safe? How close to French Quarter? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Metairie is a 20 minute drive to the French Quarter, and then parking will be struggle every day. Those spots are safe. Metairie doesn't really have any truly bad areas per se.

And I feel like you can find places now cheaper than 1,000 a month easily. Look on NOLA.com, you'll find something. My girlfriend has an old historic 1 BR on St. Charles Ave for $750 a month.

aab7855 -- Thanks for the information. I will check out NOLA.com. I'm not familiar with the area and understand areas can change rather quickly. I appreciate your help.
