Algiers LA 70114 | Number of Homes Sold | November 2009
It’s pretty obvious that home sales in the 70114 zip code of Algiers are suffering. Year to date, there have been 67 successful single family home sales, compared to 108 at the same time last year.
There are, in my opinion, a couple of reasons for this:
- Sales in Algiers Point have dropped to a very low level
- The condition of many of the properties being sold makes them attractive only to investors. Given the difficulty in obtaining financing (higher down payments, shorter time for repayment) for investment properties, the majority of the buyers of these homes are dealing with cash. Typically, a cash investor is looking at the lower end of the inventory, so the homes that sit in the middle are languishing on the market.
Algiers LA 70114 | Average Home Sale Prices | November 2009

The combined drops in both the number of sales and the average sale prices present an opportunity for buyers in the area.
