Overview of New Orleans

Many know New Orleans, called The Big Easy and NOLA by locals, for its annual Mardi Gras celebration, but once the party stops, you'll appreciate the cheap apartments available that let you rest your weary head. Cheap apartments appeal to students moving to the city and those fresh out of college, but young professionals and those looking to scale back also want more affordable places to live in Louisiana. You can search for cheap apartments in and around Jackson Square or the French Quarter, but you'll also find apartments near Smoothie King Stadium and Carousel Gardens Amusement Park. With minimum and maximum price parameters, Rent.com makes finding a place within your budget simple.

Finding a Cheap Apartment in New Orleans

Many people associate New Orleans with its party atmosphere, and while there are a variety of bars and nightclubs throughout the city, you'll also find libraries, professional sports complexes, museums and art galleries. The French Quarter and other historic parts of town let you get your fortune told, take in a show and dine on authentic Cajun or Creole food.

City Park, Magnolia, Broadmoor Uptown and Gentilly are among the more affordable neighborhoods and parts of New Orleans with places for rent. The outskirts of the city and surrounding towns in Louisiana are more affordable as well. Though you might find some places priced as low as $550 a month, rental prices generally range from $650 to $950 per month.

When planning how much you can spend, give some thought to the timeline of your move as well. This Rent.com blog post offers some advice on planning your move and setting a timeline.

What to Look For in Cheap Apartments in New Orleans

The most affordable cheap apartments for rent in New Orleans come with fewer features. Instead of having your own washer and dryer, you might have access to a shared laundry room. You will want to look for a rental with some form of air conditioning, but units with window or wall units are often less expensive than those with central AC systems. Studio apartments are more affordable than one bedroom apartments too. A studio unit may have a murphy bed and one large room with a bathroom off to one side. You may get between 300 and 600 square feet of space in a studio apartments. Cheap one bedroom apartments have much more space and may come with between 700 and 1,000 square feet with several separate rooms.
