Renter's guide to New Orleans, LA

New Orleans, the largest city in Louisiana and one of the top twenty largest cities in the United States, is 80 miles from the capital city of Louisiana, Baton Rouge, and an easy 90-minute drive along I-10. Houston is 350-miles away – about five hours by car, while Atlanta can be reached in about seven hours through mostly interstate driving.

The city of New Orleans is well-known for its colorful celebration of Mardi Gras, its infamous jazz, and a laid back, party lifestyle. If you want some proof to back up the city’s party nature, consider this: New Orleans has been named the no. 1 U.S. city by bars per capita, best city for single people, and the top travel destination for sports lovers. But that’s not the only thing the city excels at; New Orleans also got countless shout-outs for being one of the best cities for young entrepreneurs.

Overlooking the Mississippi River, the city has an international reputation as a major U.S. port, with ship access available to connect the city to the Gulf of Mexico – about 100 miles down the river.

New Orleans has over 1 ½ times the population of Birmingham, AL with similar demographics. Compared to other cities in Louisiana, New Orleans is the largest, followed by the capital Baton Rouge, with Shreveport coming in on the third place.

The city’s southern location brings about a subtropical, humid climate: during the short winters, temperatures average around 50ºF; in the wet summers, average temperatures reach 83ºF. Most rain occurs during the summer months, with autumn and winter seeing less precipitation. Typically, the mildest whether occurs during the spring, just in time for the world famous Mardi Gras celebrations.

Tips for renting in New Orleans, LA

Renting in New Orleans requires an understanding of the rental environment. In general, tenants have less leverage than landlords do. When it comes to evictions, month-to-month renters can be evicted after ten days’ notice by the landlord for any reason, and failing to pay rent or other lease violations requires only five days’ notice.

In New Orleans, the weather is a major concern for renters. The city’s susceptibility to hurricanes and major storms makes renters insurance a necessity. It is important to keep in mind that, if a rented facility is damaged from weather-related events, the lease may be terminated.

Things for renting

New Orleans, LA demographics

New Orleans, LA has a population of 391,249 according to the most recent data from the U.S. Census Bureau. 205,997 of New Orleans’s residents are women and 185,252 are men. The median age of those who live in New Orleans, LA is 37.2.

Living in New Orleans, LA

New Orleans offers plenty of options for recreation, entertainment, business, and more. So much so, that certain negative aspects are bound to accompany the positives. New Orleans has a long-standing reputation as a global cultural capital. French, Spanish, and African heritages have blended in New Orleans for hundreds of years, resulting in a delicious, multidimensional cuisine, colorful festivals and parades, and the birth of jazz music. There are Mardi Gras celebrations, countless top-rate jazz clubs, late night bars in the French Quarter, dance clubs on Bourbon Street, and pretty much every type of restaurant imaginable.

But cons made their way as well. Humidity in the summertime makes late August and September feel particularly hot, and throughout the year, the influx of tourists can clog some of the streets. Tropical storms and hurricanes are not all that uncommon for New Orleans, but steps have been taken to improve the evacuation process in case such phenomena occurs.

Crime rates have increased partly as a result of this dilapidation, with violent crime occuring primarily in lower income neighborhoods. The substantial diversity of New Orleans causes some unrest in the community, but for the most part differing cultures have coexisted and thrived in the city for years.
