So we just found out we are moving to NOLA. I have never been there before. DH seems to want to live downtown near where he will be working (on Canal Street). DH has crazy hours, so we do not want a long commute (20 minutes or less). I would prefer to live somewhere within walking distance of stores and public transportation.
No kids or pets (although we would like to get a dog someday). I think at first we would want to a rent a condo/apartment instead of a house. But we are open to both options. Once we sell our house here we will buy, but that might not be for a while.
