Local Real Estate Market Update

806idcd8czwf_01AgentCoupleExterior0153-web (1)
As we kick off 2018, we want to share with you what the current greater Baton Rouge area real estate market looks like.  Below, you will find statistics about sales in 2017 as compared to 2016:
2016 2017 Change
Number of Units Sold 10,709 11,100 3.7% Increase
Dollar Volume Sold $ 2,301,802,260 $ 2,401,614,370 4.3% Increase
Average Sale Price $ 214,666 $ 215,485   .4% Increase
Medium Sale Price $ 188,625 $ 190,191   .8% Increase
Average Days on the Market (DOM) 68.46 Days 52.49 Days 15.97 Decrease
% Sale Price / List Price 97.42% 97.29% No Change
Active Listings in December 3046 Units 3553 Units 507 Increase
Month’s Supply in December 3.41 Months 4.72 Months ———-
The above statistics compare sales of residential properties in 2016 and 2017.  The data was pulled on 1/10/18 from the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors (GBRAR) MLS and only includes residential sales.

Overall, sales are up, inventory is up, days on the market is down, and we have a healthy local real estate market.

From the above numbers, you will note that our market saw a small increase in unit sales, dollar volume sales, and average sale price in 2017 compared to 2016.   In addition, the average number of days that a property sits on the market before it is sold declined by about 16 days.

Overall, our inventory increased by about 500 units, to a healthier 5 months’ supply.  This means that if no additional home went on the market, it would take 5 months for all current active listings to sell.  For reference, a balanced and healthy market is one that has a 6 to 7 month supply of inventory.  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 great.
