Native New Orleanians are used to not being able to find a home with a garage. Heck, we know it can be a challenge to even get off-street parking sometimes!
If you’ve been real estate shopping in New Orleans, you may have noticed that homes with garages tend to be in the suburbs. (Think Westbank & Metairie)
What New Orleans neighborhoods have garages?
Lakeview, Algiers, and New Orleans East are your best bets. Noteworthy, there are parts of Gentilly where you can also find a garage.
Do any Uptown New Orleans homes have garages?
Of course! But, they are hard to find and tend to be expensive. Furthermore, you should know that if the garage is in bad shape, do not tear it down. In historic districts of New Orleans, you will not be allowed to put a new one up.
