What $1,400 Can Rent You In New Orleans

New, 5 comments

Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various New Orleans neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,400/month.


This listing reps the LGD but technically, it's on the Central City side of St. Charles Avenue, if you're a renter into specifics. It's missing an exterior shot, which usually isn't a good sign, but here's the scoop: There are two bedrooms, one bathroom, hardwood floors, a washer/dryer, dishwasher, and central air and heat. Those who want to sign on now only have to pay a $1,000 deposit for the space – but be warned: "Stairs in the pictures don't lead anywhere, but they are beautiful."


↑ In Tremé a stand-alone one-bedroom Creole Cottage sits behind a pretty magnificent looking Esplanade Avenue home. Electricity, gas, and water are paid and there's a "French Quarter style patio" with pool.


This Carrollton Avenue-area rental Uptown doesn't offer much in the way of pictures (show off that sun room, please!) but this is what we're working with: Two bedrooms, one bathroom, 1,500-square feet of living space, and a balcony. There's also the rental luxuries of central air and heat, a washer/dryer, and off-street parking. Water is paid and pets are allowed.


↑ On Laurel Street Uptown, this charming two-bedroom, one-bath shotgun style home is renting for $1,395 a month. The 1,100-square foot rental also has a large shed with a washer/dryer in the backyard. Dogs are allowed if the owner says okay but there's a $400 $250 pet deposit and get this, a $50 $30 per month pet fee. (The owner of the property says the original prices were just a starting point.)


This 1,380-square foot bi-level Bywater home has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and an office. The place is newly renovated with central heat and air, double-insulated windows, and the kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and a dishwasher. Pet owners and smokers are out of luck, though.
