New Orleans’s oldest neighborhood is also its crown jewel. The French Quarter is the center of the city, and while every neighborhood in our 350 square miles is a treasure, the French Quarter remains the cultural crux of the city.

Founded in 1718, the neighborhood holds some of the city’s oldest buildings. It remains under strict control of the Vieux Carré Commission, which regulates any repairs and alterations done to the exterior of buildings in the neighborhood.

Its location paired with its bustling nightlife and walkability makes it a desirable place to live, and therefore quite expensive.

There are still deals to be had, so we combed through the offerings and mapped the very best homes for sale in the French Quarter for under $300,000—$100,000 less than the neighborhood median price.
