Rents in New Orleans continue to climb as demand is starting to outpace the supply.
In 2014, the median 1 bedroom rental price in New Orleans was over $2,000 per month.
What can $2,000 a month buy for you? A lot and you might even save money on your housing costs by purchasing instead of renting.
$200,000 loan amount at 4% interest rate over 30 years = a monthly mortgage payment of $954.83. Now, that’s principle and interest only. Add on the cost of taxes and insurance and you’ll still be paying less than the median rent in the city.
