My husband and I new to the Shreveport/Bossier area from Texas and have been house hunting. Initially we wanted land in the country because that is what we are use to - well, let's just say Louisiana does not have Texas prices so that's out as well as the majority of Bossier is overpriced as well. I have read lots of advice on the site and it has been very helpful and usually spot on in terms of the best areas to stay in town. I wanted some more targeted advice about the Broadmoor area directly South of Centenary college. The house prices are more affordable in this area, but some of the advice I have gotten from people (who are considerably more wealthy than us) has been very negative. But when I drive around the area, it seems safe and relatively nice to me. Any thoughts, advice, suggestions is very welcome.

I moved to the Broadmoor area two years ago from out of town and love it. I have two toddlers that love the close proximity to several parks and the shaded sidewalks are perfect for taking walks. We have had 0 security issues as well.

I grew up in the area just north of Centenary College and moved to the Broadmoor area in the early 1970's. We raised our children there and my now grown daughter and her family currently lives there. I have no reservations in recommending the neighborhood. The area is safe, the majority of the homes are well kept, it is convenient to most all shops and activities, good schools...etc. Even though I currently live a little further Southeast, I would not hesitate to return to Broadmoor.

I personally really like Broadmoor--it's probably my favorite middle-class neighborhood in Shreveport. You may, however, want to look a little farther south in Broadmoor or a little farther east. The area immediately around Centenary can be hit or miss.

Anything south of Querbes, north of Southfield, east of Fern, and west of E Kings is good (this is a giant square I've just described--check on Google maps).

What do you mean that Louisiana does not have Texas prices? What part of Texas are you moving from?
