No, get a rental and save your money unless you can find a sub $50,000 deal.

The housing market is overvalued and we expect it to be very volatile for the next few years. The result is that you may have a hard time selling a home and Louisiana homes in this area very prone to rapid decay due to termites and humidity.

PM me if you are looking for a bargain home, a friend of mine is selling a livable but run-down home in Starks on 2 acres, (40 minute drive to Lake Charles), for around $20K if you want to live in hog / racoon / turkey country.

I think Carlyss is growing fastest and is close to Hackberry. A house would be a good investment.

COSIGN!

They could build a couple of hotels on the lake front where the old Harrah's hotel was. We have more than enough hotels on Prien Lake Rd already, including one that is under construction that is to open this spring.

ALSO NOT NEEDED:
Another park or gas station. We have parks galore in this city and around it. Also, how many gas stations do you honestly need on one street?

It's really ridiculous how all the hotel chains have clustered right around Golden Nugget/L'auberge along Prien Lake Road. They have basically now developed all the available land.

The problem is that the corporate offices look at the numbers and see very high occupancy (low vacancy) and then they see where other hotels are being put in and they find an available lot near there.

There are no "local hotel developers" so nobody with intimate knowledge of the area. If there were, it would be a no brainer to develop a hotel right along I-10 where the old Harrah's was.

I think a full fledge Marriott, Hilton, or Sheraton is needed to be honest. The only "full service" hotels are the casino hotels and they are priced upwards of $350 for a weekend night. Marriott could come in and even a $200/night would be preferable, as long as it's a full service hotel.

You buy forest land so a city data user can't build a hotel on the beach? Lol
