Mapping 10 Of New Orleans' Most Expensive Rentals

View as Map

Compared to bigger cities, New Orleans rent —even in its most expensive form— is pocket change. But here, where the average rent for the metro area is $872 per month, these rentals are going for a pretty penny. The city's currently blasted with "corporate rentals" so for the sake of not tracking every single furnished/short-term/outrageously priced place on the market, we sliced through to find dwellings that, for the most part, are just straight-up pricey rentals. (Curious about the most expensive spots on the corporate rental scene? Stay tuned, as there are a couple in the $20,000 per month range.) Here we've mapped out ten big-money options for rent around New Orleans: From a 5,755-square foot Uptown home to converted warehouses downtown to a Warehouse District luxury apartment that was once an undertaker's office, there's something for everyone — as long as you've got the loot, of course.

Apt. 3A is the top dog (biggest, most expensive) of the 9 units in this building, which has been an 1840s coffee factory, then a mortician's office. The developer says there's a "niche market" in town that wants the luxe lifestyle without buying.

Price: $5,900
Bedrooms: 2

Price: $3,200

For some reason the listing fails to mention this rental is in The Sultan's Palace, rumored to be highly haunted. The 2,000-sq.ft. wrap-around porch will be a good spot to people watch as the haunted history tours ogle.
