Local Real Estate Market Update

806idcd8czwf_01AgentCoupleExterior0153-web (1)

With the first 1st Quarter of 2018 behind us, and spring in the air, we want to bring you the latest real estate market update.  The summary below compares the first three months of 2018, compared to the same time period in 2017:
2017 2018 Change
Total Unit Sales 2550 2260 Down 11.4%
Total $ Sales $500 Million $495 Million Down 1.0%
Avg. Sale Price $195,367 $218,648 Up 11.9%
Median Sale Price $179,000 $194,900 Up 8.9%
Avg. Days on Market 55 Days 65 days Up 10 days
% Sale Price / List Price 97.1% 97.64% No Change
# Active Listings (March) 4382 Units 5068 Units Up 15.7%
Monthly Supply of Inventory (March) 4.21 Months 5.33 Month
The above statistics compare sales of residential properties in 2017 and 2018.  The data was pulled on 4/11/18 from the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors (GBRAR) MLS and only includes residential sales.

Overall, unit sales are up, price is up, inventory is up, and we are moving closer to a balanced local real estate market.

During the first part of 2017, our area was still feeling the impact of the August, 2016 flooding.  Our inventory and average sale price were down, as many of the properties selling were “gutted” homes.  Many of the homes were purchased at a discount by investors who repaired them and put them back on the market.  As you can see above, our unit volume was down by just over 11%, but our average sale price increased by nearly 12%, to just over $218,000.  As demand slowed, the average days on the market increased by 10 days, to a still healthy 65 days.
Our market continued to reflect a strong Sale Price to List Price ratio of around 97%. This percentage has held steady for a number of months.  Lack of inventory has been an issue in our market for a couple of years.  We may now be seeing that trend reverse itself, as March 2018 inventory increased to just over 5,000 units.  This reflects an inventory supply of 5.33 Months, meaning that if no additional home went on the market, it would take 5.33 months for all current active listings to sell.  Although stronger than March of 2017, this still is below what is considered a healthy market of between 6 and 8 months’ supply.
This low inventory may make it tough for buyers who want choices to consider as they search the market for a home to purchase.   At the same time, if you are considering selling your home, now is a great time to list your house, as the demand is still great.
