iHomefinder IDX is now available for members of the Northwest Louisiana Association of REALTORS® . This Association covers the Shreveport/Bossier City area. Shreveport is the third largest city in Louisiana and the main city of the third largest metropolitan area in Louisiana. As of the 2010 census, the population of Shreveport was 218, 021 and the population of the Shreveport/Bossier City metropolitan area was greater than 400,000. Shreveport and Bossier City are separated by the Red River.
The area’s economy is largely a service economy. There has been a rapid growth in the gaming industry specifically riverboat gambling casinos and horse track racing. Shreveport is a major medical center in the region and a cultural center for the Ark-La-Tex region (where Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas connect).
Realtor.com released a list of the five best housing markets in 2011. The Shreveport/Bossier City area ranked second, right behind Ft. Myers. Real estate locals credit the stability of the Shreveport market to nationally low interest rates, a thriving local economy and a low unemployment rate (around 6%).
