Bossier City

Directly across the Red River, east of Shreveport, is Bossier City. As it is also known for its arts and entertainment, Shreveport is considered to be the sister city of this municipality, and these are often combined into a singular trip by tourists. And, much like Shreveport, Bossier City has focused heavily on improving infrastructure and the economy in the last two decades. Also located in the city is the Barksdale Air Force Base, and as a result, many military families call Bossier City home.

Discover Bossier City Real Estate

The real estate market in Bossier City may be the hottest in the parish, with homes that range from more affordable, starter homes to larger properties in luxurious subdivisions. While the city was historically known for its entertainment, namely its casinos, expansion of its residential areas has changed Bossier City over the years. 

Downtown Bossier City mirrors Shreveport’s own, and is located right across the river. This area comprises primarily commercial buildings and hotels. However, there are numerous residential neighborhoods in the city—some of which are located close to downtown. Buyers searching for a single-family home in established neighborhoods have a lot of choice: these properties are typically older, and many have construction dates around the 1940s. Older properties also tend to begin at lower price points, but buyers should be aware that these homes can be both smaller and not as carefully maintained as other areas around the city. 

Single-family homes for sale in Bossier City are primarily bungalows, a prevalent home type regardless of construction date. Property size begins at around 1,300 to 1,500 square feet—with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. Moving away from the city center, older homes in these neighborhoods have often been remodeled or updated by their owners. This is most frequently found in homes built between the 1970s and 1990s. Square footage also increases with newer properties. 2,000 and 3,000 square feet is relatively common, although price points do rise significantly. A good portion of the available homes for sale in Bossier City can range between $400,000 and $600,000, although there are also a selection of luxurious homes over $600K.

Bossier City’s real estate market also consists of new construction homes, many of which are quite luxurious. While older homes have a distinctively traditional style (as is expected), new homes for sale lean more towards modern, suburban architecture, although brick exteriors are quite common. These exclusive properties are also, more often, multi-story homes. New subdivisions, such as the gated community of Tiburon in North Bossier City, offer a lot more range in architectural styles—with that comes a luxury price point. 

Bossier City, LA Highlights & Amenities 

With a number of commercial areas, including malls, residents and visitors of Bossier City have ample opportunities to shop and dine. It’s only a short drive from residential neighborhoods to grocery stores and local businesses. The downtown area also features outlet stores, live music venues, and a movie theater. 

For families, there are a number of schools, parks, and kid-friendly attractions around the city.

Other highlights include the Tinsley Athletic Complex and the Clifford Almond Community Playfield. Bossier City is also the home of the Bossier Parish Community College campus and the Barksdale Air Force Base.

Bossier City’s location means that it’s easy to dart across the bridge into Shreveport, if one so chooses. Here, there are even more things to do, including museums and convention centers, historic landmarks, and annual events and festivals.
