Tara Subdivision Baton Rouge Reader Question Post-Flood Values

Tara Subdivision Baton Rouge Home Sales 2011 to 2018 1900 sqft to 2400 sqft.


This is a study for a reader of mine who asked if Tara Subdivision home prices are up since his early 2011 purchase?
And, if Tara values are up after the Great Flood of August 2016 because Tara did not flood?

The chart shows the obvious answer, which is YES to both. However, the reason isn’t just normal home price appreciation though.

Given the favorable location near the center of Baton Rouge, convenient within 10 minutes of so many needed facilities, and the aging homeownership rate and estate sales, home flippers have targeted Tara for renovation flips. And, buyers are choosing Tara paying from $250,000 to $315,000 for 1900sf to 2400sf homes, some with very nice renovations, all the while preserving some of the wood inside these homes.
