Rentals: When should I start looking?

New Orleans apartments for rent

Renting in New Orleans can be similar to a full contact sport. Prices have risen and finding really cute places, that aren’t falling apart, can prove difficult.

 

When should I start looking for my New Orleans apartment? 

Two months before. At the very most. Looking any further out than that will leave you disappointed when they won’t hold a place for you. Amazing rentals in New Orleans don’t last very long and the landlords know that. They are not going to sit on a vacant place when they can find someone move in next week.

 

But, I really love this place. How can I secure it? 

Are you prepared to pay rent on two places for a month or two? If not, let the place go and hope it’s still available when you’re closer to your lease being up. If two rents is not big deal for a short time, then let’s go for it!

 

Oops. I forgot I needed to find a new place. Can I find one in 30 days or less?

Of course. We just need to move quickly.
