Local Real Estate Market Update

806idcd8czwf_01AgentCoupleExterior0153-web (1)

With the third quarter of 2018 behind us, we want to bring you the latest real estate market update:
2017
2018 Change
Total Unit Sales
8703 8285 Down 4.8%
Total Dollar Sales
$1,864 Million $1,872 Million Up .4%
Avg. Sale Price
$212,741 $225,131 Up 5.8%
Medium Sale Price
$186,000 $200,000 Up 7.5%
Avg. Days on the Market
51 61 Up 10 Days
% Sale Price / List Price
97.43% 97.25% No Change
#Active Listings (Sep.)
4858 5348 Up 10.1%
Monthly Supply of Inventory (Sep.)
5.41 Months 6.39 Months
The information above was compiled from reports pulled on October 10, 2018, from the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors Multiple Listing Service (MLS).  It represents residential sales only and covers our 9 parish area.

The number of properties sold in the first three quarters of 2018 was down nearly 5% from the same time period of 2017.  Some of this may be due to a slight increase in interest rates, which is projected to continue into 2019.  We also saw a 10 day increase in our Average Days on the Market to 61 days.  The reality, however, is that the mortgage rates are still historically low, and 61 days is still a healthy number. 

Sellers will appreciate the fact that their home values have increased.  The average sale price for the first nine months of 2018 was $225,131, a jump of 5.8% compared to the first nine months of 2017.

Our inventory of homes on the market continued to increase, to 5348, as of September 2018.  This reflects an inventory supply of just over 6 months. This means that if no new home were to be placed on the market, it would take just over six months for every home to sell.  The real estate industry considers a 6 to 8 month supply of inventory as healthy.  This increase does mean that buyers are having more choices and are taking more time to look around.  Inventory of 6 to 8 months would be considered a healthy market.

Overall, we’re seeing a strong real estate market in the greater Baton Rouge area, as the economy in our area remains strong!

Local Real Estate Market Update

806idcd8czwf_01AgentCoupleExterior0153-web (1)

With the first half of 2018 behind us, we want to bring you the latest real estate market update.  The summary below compares the first six months of 2018, compared to the same time period in 2017:
FIRST 6 MONTHS OF 2017
FIRST 6 MONTHS OF 2018 CHANGE
TOTAL UNIT SALES
5707 5297 down 7.2%
TOTAL $ SALES
$1,205 million $1,183 million down 1.8%
AVERAGE SALE PRICE
$209,081 $222,495 up 6.4%
MEDIUM SALE PRICE
$182,608 $196,714 up 7.7%
AVG. DAYS ON THE MARKET
54 days 62 days up 8 days
% SALE PRICE / LIST PRICE
97.10% 97.64% no change
NUMBER OF ACTIVE LISTINGS (JUNE, 2018
4658 units 5572 units up 19.6%
MONTHLY SUPPLY OF INVENTORY (JUNE, 2018)
4.06 months 5.36 months
The above statistics compare sales of residential properties in 2017 and 2018.  The data was pulled on 7/10/18 from the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors (GBRAR) MLS and only includes residential sales.

 

The figures above show that our unit sales were down just over 7% and dollar sales nearly 2%. This really is not a big surprise, as the beginning of 2017 was very active with the flooded and gutted homes being purchased mostly by investors. People that were flooded were also looking for an alternative home to buy. On the other hand, the average sale price is up just over 6% at $222,495, and the medium sale price was $196,714 reflecting an increase of nearly 8%.
One of the drawbacks of our real estate market over the past couple of years has been a lack of inventory. This trend continued in 2018, but does show signs of improving. Last month our inventory showed a jump of nearly 20% over the same period last year with active residential listings at 5572 units. From a supply standpoint, this inventory represented 5.36 months’ supply compared to just over a 4 month supply in June of 2017. The real estate industry considers a 6 to 8 month supply of inventory as healthy. This increase does mean that buyers are having more choices and are taking more time to look around.
Overall, we believe or market remains healthy and should continue that trend as we move through the remainder of 2018. Unemployment is low, jobs are available and (although we have seen some movement in interest rates) rates remain historically low.

Because inventory is increasing, it is very important to price a property competitively and consider making those necessary repairs or updates that will make your home more marketable.
