Scott Saporito earns NAR’s Military Relocation Professional Certification

Screen Shot 2019-10-29 at 9.52.08 PM.png

Coldwell Banker ONE Realtor, Scott Saporito, has been awarded the nationally recognized Military Relocation Professional Certification.  The National Association of Realtors® awards the MRP certification to Realtors® who help military personnel, veterans and their families find housing that lets them make the best use of their benefits and serves the unique needs of military life.

When military staff and their families relocate, the services of a real estate professional who understands their needs and timetables can make the transfer easier, faster and less stressful.  Realtors® who earn this certification know to work with active duty military buyers and sellers, as well as veterans.

“Service members may only have a couple of days to view properties and make an offer, and others might be deployed at the time and need someone who can represent them while they’re away. Working with a Realtor® who understands the singular complications that arise with military service can help make the home buying process simpler, faster and less stressful,” said National Association of Realtors® President Tom Salomone. “The MRP certification lets home buyers and sellers know that a Realtor® knows the ins and outs of military housing benefits, such as zero-down payment loans, and the specific needs service members and veterans have when searching for their new home.”

The certification provides NAR’s members with resources to accommodate current and former military service members at any stage of their military career and is an approved elective for NAR’s Accredited Buyers Representative designation. To earn the MRP certification, Realtors must be in good standing with NAR; complete the MRP Certification Core Course; complete a reading providing background information on the military, included acronyms and understanding military culture; and complete two webinars.

Scott is a full-time, Coldwell Banker ONE Realtor who specializes in real estate in the greater Baton Rouge area.  He and his family live in Prairieville, Louisiana.  Scott served on several Greater Baton Rouge Association of REALTORS® (GBRAR) committees, served as the GBRAR Treasurer, and was recently elected to serve on the GBRAR Board of Directors .  In addition, he has earned his Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), and Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA) certifications from the National Association of Realtors as well his Smart Home Designation from Coldwell Banker in partnership with CEDIA, the leading trade association for 22,000 smart home manufacturers and installers.

Local real estate market update

806idcd8czwf_01AgentCoupleExterior0153-web (1)

Fall weather and football season is here, and the holidays are right around the corner.  What a great time of year and great time to be a resident of south Louisiana!  Coldwell Banker ONE Realtors are asked all of the time how our real estate market is doing in the Baton Rouge area.  The answer:  It’s on target to equal or exceed what we did in 2018.  The numbers below from data pulled from the Greater Baton Rouge area according to the GBRAR MLS records certainly indicate that to be true.  The data below is a summary of sold residential properties for the first 3 quarters of 2019 (January-September), compared to the same time period in 2018.

2018 2019 Change
Total Unit Sales 8400 8399 ———-
Total Dollar Sales $1,895.1 Million $1,970.8 Million Up 4.0%
Average Sale Price $ 224,786 $ 233,511 Up 3.9%
Medium Sale Price $ 199,900 $ 207,375 Up 3.7%
Average Days on the Market         61 days 70 days Up 9 days
% Sale Price/List Price 97.1% 97.2% ———-
# Active Listings (Sept) 5433 5707 Up 5.0%
Monthly Supply of Inventory         6.13 Months 6.44 Months
The report was pulled on October 9, 2019.  This data may vary some as additional sold properties are added.

As reflected in the above numbers, average sale price and medium sale price showed a modest increase of just under 4%.   Unit sales remained stable and total dollar volume also increased around 4%.  The average days on the market increased by 9 days, to 70 days.  We have seen this upward trend in days on the market recently as inventory of active listings has been increasing.  Interest rates have remained low and very affordable through the year.  Overall, we still have a healthy real estate market in Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas.

Interest rates remain low, and it is anticipated that we will see a good real estate market through the remainder of the year.  If you are looking to buy or sell real estate – now is a great time!

We are more than just your Realtors;

We are your neighbors!
