Lake Charles Louisiana Is Booming with Growth!

Real Estate Agent with Marilyn Boudreaux, Century 21 Bono Realty 0912122870 LA

  This song from POD comes to mind when I look around Lake Charles!  Why?
Because we are booming and its alright! 
 This map with all the blue tags just shows the tip of the iceberg of economic growth in Southwest Louisiana with industrial projects.

Everyone is talking about the economic boom and growth headed to Lake Charles, LA.   The city of Lake Charles is trying to catch up with infrastructure and if you have driven anywhere lately you will notice the increase in traffic and on Interstate 210!  Part of the Interstate construction is expanding with a new turn around and Exit to the new Golden Nugget Casino in Lake Charles.

The Golden Nugget sign can now be seen on top of the new casino as they rush to meet completion for a December 2014 opening!  Management positions are being filled and the team of executives are beginning to arrive and look for residences here in Lake Charles!

Growth can be seen everyone all over Lake Charles!  Residents are even excited about the progress of the new Dairy Queen being built on Nelson Road!
Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso held a press conference today giving an overview of the steps that parish law enforcement officials are taking as preparation for the projected 50,000 new residents that will come to Southwest Louisiana as a result of industrial growth.  Mancuso said that the expected population boom could bring many benefits, including higher property values and a larger tax base and I believe he is right about that!
In a Lake Charles American Press article  RB Smith Vice President workforce development at the SWLA Economic Development Alliance shared the amount of new jobs that will be coming!  Within the Lake Charles area we  anticipate that many new people will also come to the region seeking employment opportunities. Those seeking permanent positions will likely bring their families and become residents of our community. There will also be a boomerang effect happening with some of our hometown folks who went away to seek employment to other states who will return to Southwest Louisiana.
All of these potential new and returning people equate to an expected population growth for the region.
Is Lake Charles ready for the boom?  Its a given fact that housing inventory will need to increase to supply the need for the permanent jobs that will be created with this economic growth.  Right now within Calcasieu Parish Real Estate is a Seller's market, due to the low inventory.  Listings are going under contract quickly and we have a need to replace inventory!
If you are a new resident headed to Lake Charles as part of our economic boom, I would welcome the opportunity to work with you!  I  am certified in new home construction and relocation real estate.  
Contact me today I'd like to show you the benefits of Lake Charles Living and welcome you to our City!
