A Sneak Peek at Shreveport

What should you know about Shreveport before packing up shop and making the city your new maison? Funny you should ask, because we were just about to tell you anyway. Here are a few tidbits of info about Louisiana’s third-largest city that will make your apartment-hunting experience as smooth and delectable as an order of oysters-on-the-half-shell at Chicky's Boom Boom Room & Oyster House in downtown Shreveport:

  • The great “Great Outdoors”: There’s a reason peeps-in-the-know refer to northern Louisiana as “Sportsman’s Paradise:” The area offers a plethora of outdoors activities, and Shreveport is home to numerous lakes, golf courses, biking/hiking trails, and parks (including the amusement and Frisbee varieties). Bottom line: Shreveport’s residents won’t have a problem finding options for fun in the sun.

  • A Perpetual Jackpot: One of Shreveport’s most enticing charms is its affordability. The average rental unit costs less than $700, while quality units in popular areas like the Fairfield Historic District often pop up in the $550 range. The city’s cost of living index is 13 percentage points lower than the rest of America, which means you can save your money for more important things.

  • Riding in Style: For downtown dwellers, the SporTran public buses are a viable option for bumming around, but if you live anywhere else in Shreveport, you better have your own set of wheels. Is it possible to live outside the inner city without your own vehicle? Technically, yes, though we wouldn’t recommend it.

Finding your Home in Shreveport

Now that you have a taste of life in Cajun Country, it’s time to arm you with all the info you’ll need to track down your dream dwellings. Some things you should know about the leasing life in Shreveport:

  • Impossible to Categorize: Unlike many Southern cities, whose rental units have similar décors and offer comparable amenities, Shreveport’s residential properties vary from site to site. Because the city’s neighborhoods grew gradually over the past several decades rather than all sprouted up at once, almost every part of town offers a variety of leasing options. From modern, spacious apartments and lofts with all the bells and whistles to near-historic, freestanding houses, you’ll find something in Shreveport that fits your style, no matter how traditional or esoteric that style may be.

  • The Bayou Basics: As long as you’re equipped with proof of income and a decent renting history, you shouldn’t have a problem scoring an available unit at most complexes. Keep in mind, though, that you get what you pay for.

The Lay of the Land

Generally, the most economical digs in Shreveport are located on the west side, while the more pricey and modern units are centered down south. North Bossier, meanwhile, is a fast-growing ‘burb just across the Red River.

And now you’re all set to trek on down to the Bayou State and kick it with the Creoles. So welcome to Shreveport, and happy hunting!

January 2019 Shreveport Rent Report

Welcome to the January 2019 Shreveport Rent Report. Shreveport rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Shreveport rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Shreveport rents increased significantly over the past month

Shreveport rents have increased 0.5% over the past month, but are down moderately by 0.9% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Shreveport stand at $720 for a one-bedroom apartment and $840 for a two-bedroom. This is the third straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in September. Shreveport's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of -1.0%, but trails the national average of 0.9%.

Shreveport rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have fallen moderately in Shreveport, many large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Shreveport is also more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Shreveport's median two-bedroom rent of $840 is below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 0.9% over the past year compared to the 0.9% decline in Shreveport.
  • While rents in Shreveport fell moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.3%), New York (+2.7%), and Denver (+2.5%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Shreveport than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,090, which is more than three-and-a-half times the price in Shreveport.

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

Methodology:

Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
