Working hard to overcome a history of blight, Central City has been a magnet to investors and do-it-yourselfers that want to pioneer the comeback of a NOLA neighborhood that is, as the name says, centrally located to just about everything. Sales are up just 3.85%, but prices have skyrocketed, jumping 97% between 2011 and 2014.

Marigny/Bywater Above St. Claude Avenue

Holy Cross/Lower 9th Ward

Revitalization is creeping out of the edges of the Upper 9th Ward and Bywater neighborhoods and into the Lower 9th. Although prices have leapt by 102.5%, it remains one of the most affordable places to live in New Orleans.
