Apartment Market in New Orleans not expected to fully recover until 2022:

New Orleans’ economy and apartment market were challenged in 2020 by the COVID-19 pandemic and Hurricanes Laura and Zeta. Damage from the two hurricanes forced approximately 12,000 residents to flee homes and apartments for temporary refuge in hotels. Amid these challenges, builders completed 1,370 apartments in the New Orleans metro area in 2020, the greatest annual deliveries since 2008. Consequently, apartment occupancy descended 140 basis points to 94.5% by year-end as net absorption trailed significantly.

New Orleans Decrease in Effective Rents:

At the same time, average effective rent decreased 0.6% to $1,027 per month in December. Apartment deliveries will diminish in 2021, but economic malaise will persist in some employment segments, further affecting apartment fundamentals. Albeit to a much lesser extent than in 2020. Effective rent this year is forecast to decrease 0.4% to $1,023 per month.  While occupancy descends 60 basis points to 93.9%. In 2022, metrowide employment recovery is expected to continue, and this expansion will lift apartment occupancy and rent. Apartment net absorption is forecast to significantly outpace the 33 apartments scheduled for delivery in 2022, resulting in a projected 30-basis-point increase in occupancy to 94.2% by year-end. Meanwhile, average effective rent is forecast to rise 2.3% to $1,047 per month. Aiding the employment bounceback and the apartment outlook in 2022 will be the return of NOLA-based hospitality jobs.

For example, hotels, shops, and restaurants will ramp up hiring for the return of Mardi Gras in 2022, which historically draws 1.4 million visitors who spend about $1 billion in New Orleans.
