#1. The perfectly located area inside of Magazine St, The Zoo, Tchoupitoulas, and Jefferson. A great small town with every amenity. Could be best in city.

#2. Dante to Pine, St. Charles to Neron. Similar to #1 but at a lower price point. Avoid buying near student rentals close to Tulane. Otherwise, it has many excellent opportunities. A favorite.

#3. Mid-City, bounded by Orleans Ave, Moss St, and City Park Ave. One of the best locations in the city. Can’t say enough about the location.

#4. Holy Cross (& parts of Arabi). Cool social mix, interesting history, lots of cute architecture, artsy, more trees and bigger lots than Bywater, affordable housing. Nice homes between $200-300K.

* Want to move to a low crime California suburb with a lot of (mid-century) modern homes and good amenities, but don’t want to leave New Orleans?
Buy in Lakeview, Lake Vista, or Lake Terrace.
