I like Greenwood for its proximity to Shreveport and diversity of activities. I can get there from Shreveport or Bossier City in just a few minutes on I-20, close enough to be convenient but far enough away to maintain its own character as a town. Greenwood
has a lot of racing and monster truck teams. I can go to the Dirt on Dirt stock car races at Boothill Speedway or watch the monster truck shows at Champion Park. In December, Greenwood has an enormously popular Christmas Festival with parades, Santa and plenty
to eat; people come from all over the rest of Louisiana just for the Greenwood festival. In the summer I can go to Cross Lake or Caddo Lake, both just north of town, and go boating, fishing, etc. When I want a change of pace I visit the Gator and Friends Alligator
Park and Exotic Animal Zoo (long name) right on I-80.
If it's your first time in Greenwood, a visit to the Greewood Cemetery is interesting as a quick historical walk through the past, to see the graves of several Confederate War veteran - including the Confederate General Young Marshall Moody.
Another thing I like about Greenwood is that the cost of living is low with houses starting in the $145's and rents starting around $550. Greenwood has quiet, safe neighborhoods with good schools, but you're close enough to Shreveport to be in the big city
in just a few minutes. I can also go to the Crooked Hollow Golf Course on Elysian Field Road for a round of golf and then grab some Tex-Mex at El Guapo on Greenwood Road. Greenwood is a small town, but it has its own personality and is close enough to Shreveport
to commute back and forth easily. Doing real estate appraisals in Greenwood LA involves getting around, knowing the context of the area, and being familiar with property values.
