New Housing Listing Service for LSU Health
LSU Health Shreveport aims to make housing less of an issue
LSU Health Shreveport has worked with Crew Innovations, Inc., to develop a private off-campus listing service to help LSU Health Shreveport students, faculty, staff, alumni and their families find housing in the Shreveport-Bossier area. The new service, called Real Estate With Honors, launches today.
"LSU Health Shreveport is excited to use this new system to help make the search for off-campus housing easy, fun and informative," said Marcia Hunter, MS, School of Allied Health Professions Assistant Dean for Student Affairs. "Real Estate With Honors will help students and staff learn about living off campus, save time in their property search and make the overall process of finding housing less stressful."
To better meet the diverse housing needs of the LSU Health community, Real Estate With Honors will include a wide variety of property types, locations, price ranges and sizes. Housing options from all across the Shreveport metro, including apartment complexes, houses for sale and rent, condos, and even short-term furnished housing will be located on one website.
"Most students cannot make several trips to Shreveport looking for housing," said Hunter. "These students, especially international students and students who aren't familiar with our local area, need a good system to search and sort off-campus listings by price, availability, distance to campus and number of bedrooms."
The service also lets users inquire about listings and schedule showings through web-based forms. Additional state-of-the-art technology will provide bird's-eye views and 3D mapping tools to give the user detailed impressions of each property. The website will include educational information for first-time buyers and renters, such as off-campus safety and crime prevention articles and a real estate education blog. Links to Shreveport Police Department crime statistics, U.S. Census Bureau demographic data and Shreveport-area travel and tourism also will be included.
