The Area

New Orleans is surrounded by water but much of that water is the Mississippi River not the Gulf of Mexico. Homes “on the water” here are on the banks of the river not the Gulf. While much of life in New Orleans is celebrated for the nightlife, you’re also surrounded by some of the most amazing outdoor opportunities within a short drive. National Forests, and beautiful Georgia and Florida beaches are available within a couple hours drive. Come for the music, parties, beignets, and gumbo but stay for what you can do outside the city.

Central Business District

Young Professionals

The Central Business District is an obvious choice for young professionals to start their search for a home. Plenty of high-rise apartments, a short walk to Central Business District offices and the Warehouse District to the South, it also has tons of shops, restaurants and bars for nighttime. Bywater is an interesting alternative to the Business Districts. It’s the center of the city’s arts scene and is filled with clubs and eclectic restaurants. Most of the walkable jobs here are in the service sector, but you’re just 10 minutes to the Central Business District if a commute is required.

Faubourg Marigny


New Orleans is one of the most progressive cities for the LGBTQ+ community in the entire country. Festivals, Bars, LGBTQ-owned businesses, and tons of local support and resources make the entire city feel friendly to all. Faubourg Marigny is one of the more famous gayborhoods in New Orleans. In the 80’s the neighborhood exploded with music venues and arts festivals and this pulled in the LGBTQ community. It is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city and as a result one of the most beautiful and classical in terms of architecture in homes and buildings.

Algiers Point


Algiers Point is a good starting point for families looking for a NOLA neighborhood. The area is safe, quiet, and filled with affordable and beautiful Creole cottages and Raised Center Hall homes, along the West Bank of the Mississippi River. Another great option is Bayou St John. Just a 10 minute ride into downtown, and filled with parks, museums and some of the best public schools in the city.
