I recently completed a home purchase appraisal in Bayou Grand South Subdivision in Gonzales Louisiana 70737. Gonzales is Greater Baton Rouge Suburb located south of Baton Rouge. Bayou Grand South may have been developed in 1950s, not exactly certain, with home sizes ranging from 776sf to 1850sf, average 1,290 sq. ft. The following is my report on the home sales trends that took place and the prices paid for these homes from January 2014 to November 2015 Year-To-Date.

Why Disappointing?  
Median Sold Prices down 5%.  Number of home sales down 29%. Under Contract homes down 3%.  Yes, average days on market has improved 18% and there's 23% less months supply of inventory.  I don't necessarily understand if this is totally a low supply issue or not.

I had a local real estate agent contact me last week asking for a update on Les Chenier Subdivision as there really hasn't been much home sales activity in this development, but a development that has experienced some REO or foreclosure activity. 
This development has puzzled me for several years as to how it climbed so high in home prices after Hurricane Katrina for these smaller homes.  The Median Sales Prices from 2005 to 2010 … (0 comments)

NOTE: This chart can be viewed in a larger scale @ http://www.batonrougerealestatetrends.net/building-permits/
According to Chad Calder's The Advocate article below, for the first half of 2010, Ascension has issued approximately 399 permits, which was a 27% rise over 2009.  NOTE: IF the pace of first half residential building permits continues throughout 2010, then 2010 will surpass the 786 permits for 2009.  However, with the slowdown in new home construction, this is doubtful.  It's believed by this appraiser, which concurs with Chad's article, that much of the … (1 comments)
