Now, the state is going through one of its worst housing markets in a generation, and many are wondering what’s to come.CNNMoney is profiling real estate agents, investors and builders, as they attempt to answer that question.

Why you should invest in LouisianaNow, if you’re like many of the new homebuyers we spoke with, you probably think of your home as an investment opportunity.
But many are surprised to learn that home prices are skyrocketing, and that buying and selling a home are two different things.
The good news is that there’s still plenty of opportunity to make money selling and buying a home.
Here’s what you need do if you want to sell your home, but want to be in the clear on the investment you’re making.1.)
What’s the big picture of the market right now?2.)
Is the market stabilizing?3.)
What are the top areas for selling and for buying?
Here’s a breakdown of the key variables to consider:1.)
Home Price Trends: A lot of the time when people talk about how the price of a home is going up, it’s because it’s in the midst of a long period of price increases.
But a lot of people have their eyes on a more immediate goal.
It’s likely that a lot more people are now looking at a home as a way to save money or take advantage of tax incentives.2.)
Tax Rates: Many states are lowering their taxes, and Louisiana is no exception.
The state’s tax rates are about a third lower than the national average, but some of that has to do with lower tax rates for some of these wealthy households.3.)
Property Taxes: Louisiana has a higher property tax rate than the average state, so some people are willing to pay more to avoid paying the tax.
But other people are more willing to put down a lot in taxes to save for a home, so the overall tax rate is likely to remain high.4.)
Real Estate Taxes: Some people are taking advantage of the mortgage interest deduction to save on a home purchase.
This is a great option if you have a mortgage and you don’t want to make a down payment.
But it’s also one of the big drawbacks to the mortgage deduction.5.)
Mortgage Rates: There are some states that have lower mortgage rates than Louisiana, so if you live in one of those states and are considering a home buy, you might want to consider getting the mortgage loan you need first.
But if you are considering the mortgage on a house in Louisiana, it will probably be higher.
Home Price History: A big part of understanding the state of the home market right here is to see how many homes are currently available in the market.
So, for example, if the market in New Orleans is really hot, you could be looking at five to six homes on the market, but if you look closer at the numbers, you’ll see a lot fewer homes available.2.
Losing money: The more you look at the price data, the more you realize that the state has been losing money in its home market over the last few years.
A lot has happened in the last five years, but the most notable of which is the economic downturn that began in 2008.
Many people in the state have seen their wealth evaporate, and a lot has changed in the property market since that time.3.
Tax Rates and Taxes: As we mentioned above, Louisiana has had a tax rate that has gone from 9.8% to 15.2% over the past few years, and some of this has been due to tax credits that the federal government has given the state to encourage homebuyer behavior.
But, like many other states, the tax rates have gone up for some people.4.
Property Taxes and Taxes?: The tax rates and tax incentives for buying a house have increased dramatically in recent years, particularly for those who are buying from the highest income earners.
This means that many people are paying more in property taxes and are paying a lot less in taxes for that same house.
And some people will even end up paying more on their mortgage than they originally planned.5.
Mortgage Rates and Interest Rates: Some states have lower interest rates than other states because they offer a tax credit for first time homebuylers.
This has led to a lot higher mortgage rates in some areas, but it’s important to note that interest rates are a reflection of the overall cost of a house. If the
