    Marigny home | New Orleans LA

    We all know that New Orleans has been growing at a rapid pace over the last several years. Recovery, restoration and folks reinvesting in the city have led some neighborhoods to a boom.

    What NOLA neighborhoods have seen the biggest increase in real estate prices?


    With a 50% increase in average sale prices from 2011 to 2014, Gentilly is making a comeback. Not only have prices risen, but the number of homes sold each year has almost doubled in the last 3 years. Find Gentilly homes for sale

    Central City

    Working hard to overcome a history of blight and abandonment, Central City real estate has become the neighborhood of choice for many investors. The number of sales has increased just 3.85%, but prices have skyrocketed by 97%. Find Central City real estate for sale


    Thanks in part to the hard work of the Broadmoor Improvement Association, the neighborhood has been making leaps and bounds in its comeback. Sales are up by almost 62% and average sold prices have jumped 83% between 2011 and 2014. Broadmoor homes for sale

    Marigny/Bywater Above St Claude

    While the sections of the Marigny and Bywater below St. Claude are the media darlings for gentrification, real estate above St. Claude is being scooped up by investors and rehabbing home owners. Sales have increased 32.7% and price are up 116.4% over the last 3 years. Real Estate Above St Claude

    Holy Cross/Lower 9th Ward

    Revitalization is creeping from the Bywater and Upper 9th Ward into the Lower 9. Although prices have increased by 102.5% over the last 3 years, it still remains one of the most affordable areas in New Orleans, especially for those willing to put some sweat equity into returning a property to commerce.
