What to know about moving in New Orleans

What’s the cost of living in New Orleans?

On average, residents of New Orleans pay $1,480 every month for their rent, gas, utilities, and food.1 This puts New Orleans in the cheaper half of our rankings of highly populated cities low living costs.

However, this figure is just an average and based on individual needs, so living in the Big Easy can cost less or a lot more depending on your lifestyle, your neighborhood, and the size of your household.

How much is rent in New Orleans?

In 2021, the average rent for a single-bedroom apartment in New Orleans was $957.22, which is relatively affordable considering the size and popularity of the city. It’s also worth noting that this average is only 0.29% higher than the city’s average rent in 2020, which was $954.44.2

This means that New Orleans saw a very minimal increase to its average rent compared to other cities where rent went up in 2021. And while rent actually went down in several cities—like San Francisco and Boston—it’s still nice to see that New Orleans’ rent remained more or less stable when prices increased drastically in many other cities.

How’s the music scene in New Orleans?

Based solely on live venues per capita, New Orleans takes fourth place on our list of cities for people who love live music. However, our rankings didn’t take musical history or preferences for specific musical genres into account. If they did, things would have shaken out a little differently.

There’s really no overstating the impact that the New Orleans music scene has had and continues to have on American music. As the birthplace of jazz and numerous legends like Louis Armstrong and Danny Barker, New Orleans is inseparable from the history and prestige of the genre.

All things considered, there’s no disputing that—while it may not have the most venues in the country—New Orleans is second-to-none for people who love jazz.

Does it rain a lot in New Orleans?

Yes, New Orleans gets 64 inches of rain in an average year. For comparison, the annual US average is 38 inches.3 And since New Orleans has precipitation 108 days every year,3 there’s a pretty good chance it’ll rain on your moving day.

Unfortunately, because moves are planned so far in advance, it’s almost impossible to plan your moving day to avoid the rain. Instead, prepare for bad weather by packing your water-sensitive belongings in reusable plastic bins instead of cardboard boxes. Even if it doesn’t rain, you’ll appreciate how durable the bins are, and you can use them for storage afterward.

If you do use cardboard boxes and it ends up raining on your moving day, you can salvage the situation by putting your boxes in waterproof trash bags at the last minute.
