The most and least expensive homes in the Bywater

The most expensive home rivals prices in the French Quarter

Last month, in a global analysis of 17 New Orleans neighborhoods, our friends at NeighborhoodX found that home prices in the Bywater, measured by price per square foot, are among some of the more expensive homes in New Orleans.

The Bywater has an average asking price of $291/square foot, says Constantine Valhouli, Director of Research for NeighborhoodX. Valhouli and his team have only considered market-rate properties in this analysis, excluding foreclosures and short sales.

"To put the neighborhood's prices in context, the Bywater falls between the Lower Garden District ($277/square foot) and West Riverside ($301/square foot)," he adds.

When considering square feet, this planned unit located at 3220 Chartres Street ranks as the most expensive home in the neighborhood. Priced at $553/square foot (which is more than the average home in the French Quarter), this home has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,445 square feet. Part of a 12-unit condominium, the developer has not disclosed much information about any of the listed units. However, upon purchase, the buyer will have a choice of three different interior designs to customize their home. Its asking price is $800,000.
