In this week's cover story about The New New Orleans
, we looked at some statistics about the price of housing in New Orleans
and the percentage of people who now are spending 50 percent or more of their income on rent. While neighborhoods like Bywater and Mid-City have become more popular, the price of rents there has gone up significantly.
So which areas are the next to boom for renters? We asked several local real estate professionals, plotted their answers on a Google Map, and overlaid it with PadMapper
, a tool which searches Craigslist rental listings and plots out the results.
Click on any PadMapper listing to see up-to-date rental information.
