The rental market in the Crescent City shocks most newcomers. Let us guide you through the process at no cost to you. How? The commission structure on leases derives from the listing therefore the landlord or lessor via his listing agent pays the commission. We work all over the region though our focus remains the Eastbank and in the heart of Uptown (which is no coincidence where our office is located).
Why so shocking? Supply and demand. With the undergrad set exceeding each successive year's incoming class since 2005, the student population largely impacts the inventory. In addition to the booming film industry, our status as Hollywood South has homeowners in California unexpectedly renting here because this is where the jobs are. And lastly returnees. We still have a returning population from the events of 2005.
And then there are pets. About 2/3rds of Crescent City landlords do not rent to pets. No cats. No dogs. Nothing. Many do not want the hassle of impact the animals may have on the space, wood floors scratched, litter odor, feces, noise, not to mention insurance liability. So, if your pet is your child and non-negotiable be ready to be aggressive. Pet friendly rentals are out there, just not in quantity.
