Q1 Local Real Estate Market Update

As we look back at the residential real estate market statistics in Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas, comparing the first quarter of 2021 versus the first quarter of 2022, we see continued strong sales and low inventory.

In the chart below, you will see that while unit sales are down, dollar volume, average sale price, and median sale price are both up.

The lack of inventory continues to be a challenge with only 1,096 residential units on the market in March. This represents only a one month supply of inventory. This means that if no new homes were to be placed on the market, it would take only one month for every current listing to sell. The real estate industry considers a 6 to 8 month supply of inventory to be a healthy, balanced market. So, in general, we are in a seller’s market.

One reason for this is that demand is increasing. There are fewer homes on the market, because there are more buyers competing for these homes. This is reflected in the consistently rising number of homes sold since May, 2020.

With the continued shortage of inventory, it is a great time for anyone thinking about selling their property to list it. If it is a well-kept, show-ready home, chances are great that it will sell faster and at a higher price than it would in a higher inventory market.

Local Real Estate Market Update: 2020 vs 2021

As we start the new year, let’s take a moment to look back at the residential real estate market statistics in 2021 versus 2020 in Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas.

In the chart below, you will see that both unit sales (up 10.9%) and dollar sales (up 20.9%) rose by a hefty margin.  Also, the average sales price for 2021 was up just under 10% when compared to 2020. 

The lack of inventory continues to be a challenge with only 1,245 residential units on the market in December. This represents only a 1.1 month supply of inventory. This means that if no new homes were to be placed on the market, it would take only a little over a month (1.1) for every current listing to sell. The real estate industry considers a 6 to 8 month supply of inventory to be a healthy, balanced market. So, in general, we are in a seller’s market.

Report from GBRAR MLS and pulled 01/07/2022. Includes Residential Properties only.

With the shortage of inventory, it is a great time for anyone thinking about selling their property to list it. Chances are great that it will sell faster and at a higher price than it would in a higher inventory market.

According to the National Association of Realtors chief economist, Lawrence Yun, we should see a slight rise in interest rates this year and a slowing of housing price appreciation. This will result in a more “normalized” market Yun said.
