http://www.batonrougemarketmetrics.com/ – Baton Rouge Housing: Monticello Subdivisions Market Update For 2010 in 70814
I recently completed 2 home appraisal assignments in Monticello Subdivision this week, both on Monticello Boulevard, and noticed these observations. There appears to be some decline due to REO or foreclosure activity. The Average Sold Price Per Sq. Ft. is down $6/sf and Median Sales Price is down $5,000 from 2009 versus 2010. AND, 5 of the 12 Current Listings are Foreclosures with more at least 2 more foreclosures that could be on the market later in 2011.
Solds In The Monticello Subdivisions from 1/1/2010 to 12/16/2010 revealed:
Average Sales Price: $138,580 ($154,573 in 2009)
Average Sold Price Per Sq. Ft.: $85/sf ($91/sf in 2009)
Median Sold Price: $145,000 ($150,500 in 2009)
Number of Sales: 15 (20 in 2009)
Average Number of Days On Market: 64 (96 in 2009)
Low To High: $82,000 to $169,000
Number of Sold REO/Foreclosures Noted In MLS: 3 or 20% of All Sales
Current # Listings: 12, 5 Are Foreclosures or 42% of All Listings
Current Listings Prices: $89,900 To $175,000
The 15 sales in in this very large subdivision in 2010 versus the 20 in 2009 reflects the current slowdown of this market post Federal Tax Credit Expiration. Without the tax credit, there doesn’t appear to be as much incentive to purchase a home. This slowdown in homes sales in a trend throughout the Baton Rouge housing market in latter 2010.
