One of the things I really like about Bossier City is the mix of old and new. Historic houses can be found in the mid $160,00 and new apartments and condos start around $600. Bossier City is safe and our schools are among the best in the state. Quiet suburban neighborhoods like Swan Lake are only a few minutes from the casinos at Riverside. Tourists hang out at the casinos, so their investment helps keep Bossier City's taxes relatively low. The other tourist attractions and Barksdale Air Force Base help keep our unemployment rate below the state average, too.
It's easy to get from one end of the Shreveport/Bossier City area. I can take I-20 and I-22 right through the heart of Bossier, East to Texas and the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex or South to the rest of Louisiana - I'm in Shreveport in under 30 minutes. Traffic jams are unheard of in Bossier City, unlike other major metro areas in the state. You can't beat our highway system for where we are.
Bossier City has a history of horse breeding and horse racing. I can go to the The Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association races at the fairgrounds or the regular auctions of prize winning horses (I just look, I don't buy). Music is also really diverse, here, and the musical history we have. Bossier City has blues, country and rockabilly musicians. I can go to Benton on the weekend to hear country music and Bossier City has some of the best delta blues clubs around. It's part of what makes this part of Louisiana great - I've mentioned it before - the diversity of styles and culture here. Doing real estate appraisals in Bossier City LA involves getting around, knowing the context of the area, and being familiar with property values.
