3927 Hamburg Street, 1,370 square feet, three-bedroom, two-bathroom house, $199,000. This raised, one-story cottage was built in 2015 and has a lot of stylish touches, including tray ceilings, granite countertops, transom windows, and stainless-steel appliances. It sits on a huge 5,000-square-foot lot in St. Bernard, near City Park.
421 Burgundy St., #4, 330 square feet, one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo, $199,000. This shoebox-shaped condo sits on the ground floor of a Creole townhouse. Thanks to an open floor plan and three sets of French doors that open directly to a private courtyard, it lives larger than its 330 square feet.

This graceful Greek Revival condo in Treme occupies a former boarding house built in 1866 for African-American students attending Straight University, a school founded during Reconstruction. Thirteen-foot-ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows give the unit an airy feel, and it’s five blocks away from the French Quarter. The HOA dues are $421/month, and it comes with one assigned parking spot.
3584 Gentilly Boulevard, 1,677 square feet, two-bedroom, two-bathroom house, $200,000.
