It’s the perfect Jazz Fest crash pad

Every spring, the real estate market near the Fair Grounds goes into full bloom as savvy homeowners capitalize on New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival foot traffic. Some locals rent their driveways out as parking spots—one famously charging festival goers $319,000 (a price tag that included a free house).

This three-bedroom, two-bathroom condo is close enough to the Fair Grounds for its owners to employ similar shenanigans. The home is less than a block from the Jazz Fest entry, and it overlooks the Fair Grounds. Basically, this 1,268-square-foot condo comes with a free lifetime pass to the fest—at the very least, you’ll be able to hear headliners from the balcony.

Built in 2008, the condo’s interior is bright and modern, with eco-friendly touches including recycled glass counters and bamboo floors. The balcony spans its open living area, and three bedrooms are clustered to the rear. The master bedroom includes built-in bookshelves, and it opens to a petite deck.
