New Orleans, La.
Price: $165,000
Bedrooms: 3
Baths: 1
Square feet: 1,393

Description: This modest cottage has a lot of style, with a peaked-roof entryway and side sunroom. The home was recently renovated and is in move-in condition.

The floor-plan of the house flows nicely with two Doric columns separating the living and dining rooms, and French doors that lead to the sun room. There's an eat-in kitchen, lots of storage and a fenced back yard.

The location is very convenient, not far from the Interstate and only about a mile and a half from the French Quarter. New Orleans prices are expected to go up 2.2% through May of 2009.
