Dillard Neighborhood New Orleans
Surrounding the university of the same name is the Dillard neighborhood in New Orleans. A subsection of the larger Gentilly area, the streets are lined with renovated, raised cottages and a sprinkle of new construction. Occasionally, there’s a rancher or mid-century modern home that hits the market, but those are few and far between.
Most homes are on narrow lots 35-45 feet wide, and have fenced yards and off street parking. The average home features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and measures just over 1,500 square feet of living area.
The median sold price in 2016 was $185,000, with the highest recorded sale at $294,000 (new construction). Homes sell in an average of 40 days and prices have been increasing over the last couple of years. Located in an X flood zone, flood premiums won’t break the bank, making this a good choice for buyers trying to minimize insurance costs.
While Dillard doesn’t have any neighborhood parks, City Park is short drive away, as is the lakefront. You’ll also find businesses along Elysian Fields Avenue and Gentilly Blvd., but most errands will require the use of a car or public transportation.
