Whether it is in the North or in the South of the American continent the place you dream of visiting and where to buy a property, we at Realigro will help you find the solution that best suits your needs, giving you all the information you need to invest in the best way. Today we will talk about one of the most famous states of the USA, cradle of Jazz, rock, blues, gospel, the capital of music: New Orleans, Louisiana. Let's start from some notion of geography, which never hurts, especially if you want to buy a property in New Orleans. 

               

Bordering Texas, Arkansas and Mississippi, it takes its name from René-Robert Cavelier, who, in honor of the King of France, Louis XIV, called it "the land of Louis". It is no coincidence that even today in this state English-French bilingualism is present, a sign of subjugation to France.  

This state enjoys a particularity: it is possible to divide it into two parts, a hilly and a flat one, bathed by the Mississippi. As for the climate, the temperatures are subtropical with frequent showers throughout the year, and hot and dry summers that touch the 32 ° C. The only problem that has always marked this nation, was undoubtedly that of the hurricanes, which, with the gold devastating effects, have, over the years, brought Louisiana to its knees. After this brief physical and geographical description, we come to the most important and practical information. What documents are necessary to be able to access this state? The rules are always the same as in almost all the states of the USA. For a period of less than 90 days, you do not need a U.S. visa, but it will be sufficient to have a Visa Waiver Program, which you can join on the website. Otherwise you will need a visa, different according to your needs. Once we have solved the problem of access, let's see what it means to live in Louisiana, precisely in New Orleans. Let's start from the most important aspect: the basic necessities.

Here is a short list of the basket of goods: 

1 kg of chicken generally costs $8.1 and $9.2.

1 liter of milk usually costs between $1 and $1.2
