The Big Easy is a legendary American city. Known almost as much for its crazy parties and debauchery as for its cuisine and music, New Orleans is truly one of the most unique cities in the nation and purchases a home in New Orleans can be an adventure in and of itself. Full of culture and extremely diverse, there is a home in New Orleans for everyone. The neighborhoods are as different as the people who call if home and each has its own distinct flavor. The one thing they all have in common, however, is that the residents of each all think theirs is the best.
Although many parts of the city were badly damaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the people who live here love this town and their resilience has them determined to rebuild. If you dream of owning a New Orleans historic mansion, hidden behind gates on a street lined with trees dripping moss, you'll most definitely want to center your search for New Orleans real estate in the Garden District. While the French Quarter is synonymous with the wilder side of New Orleans, the Garden District is the epitome of elegant Southern Living. Mid-City is a diverse area to search for a New Orleans home. Here there is an artsy vibe. It's also where a lot of the local university students call home. Primarily an area of restored shotgun style home, it's just far enough from the center of the city to be an idyllic place to purchase a home in New Orleans yet only a handful of trolley car stops away. The Spanish Quarter is just beyond the French Quarter and has gained a lot of popularity among those looking for homes in New Orleans in recent years. A more affordable alternative to The French Quarter, it has become somewhat gentrified, nonetheless. The Lower 9th was hit particularly hard by Katrina. Because the neighborhood is still in the midst of its rebuilding phase, there are some great New Orleans real estate deals to be had here for those hoping to refurbish an older home and make it their own.
