Westwego Avondale Bridge City | Number of Homes Sold | September 2009

Westwego LA 70094 | Real Estate and Home Sales | September 2009 Westwego, Avondale and Bridge City ended September with a total of 104 homes sold in 2009, compared to 130 at the same time last year (a 20% decrease in the number of sales).  In my opinion, part of the reduction in sales can be attributed to the condition of properties in the area. 

Almost 50% of the sales were of homes that were in Poor, Fair or Average condition and were more likely to appeal to an investor or a do-it-yourselfer looking for a home they could put a little sweat equity into.  Typically, these homes may not qualify for FHA financing unless the purchaser is willing to use an FHA 203(k) and pay a higher rate to be able to finance repairs into their mortgage.

Westwego LA 70094 | Real Estate and Home Sales | September 2009 Values in the 70094 zip code are holding steady, with a less than $1,000 difference between the 2008 and 2009 average sale prices.  As more homes are rehabbed, I would anticipate a slow increase in values due to improved conditions of the properties themselves.

Westwego LA 70094 | Real Estate and Home Sales | September 2009FHA remains the financing option of choice for the majority of home buyers in Westwego, Avondale and Bridge City.  However, the large number of cash purchases indicates a fairly high level of investor activity in the community as well.  Since this has always been one of the most reasonably priced real estate markets on the West Bank, it’s not surprising to find that people are snapping up the lower price range in an attempt to either rehab and rent or flip the properties. 

Year to date, there have been 43 sales of homes for less than $75,000 in the area, making up 41% of all sales.
