Pelican Point Real Estate Market Report

This report summarizes and compares the Pelican Point housing market in 2009 and compares it with previous years. In terms of unit sales, approximately the same number of homes sold in 2009 as did in 2008. While down slightly from 2008, the re-sale market segment remains ahead of pre-Katrina levels. New construction, on the other hand, is way down from years preceding 2008.

Pelican Point Unit Home Sales

Looking at absorption rates, it is definitely a buyer's market in the subdivision. There are significantly more homes for sale than demand supports. Home buyers are likely to find bargains while home sellers should set themselves apart from the competition.

Since Pelican Point is comprised of a number of different filings, each with it own unique characteristics, when examining pricing it is useful to look at individual street addresses. The following chart examines pricing in the resale market segment in terms of the price per square foot of living area. We can see that there has been a softening of prices in many areas. This is, in my opinion, due to the buyer's market condition that exists. In general, prices in Ascension parish as a whole have held for the resale market.

As always, I appreciate hearing from readers and I welcome any comments or suggestions for improvement that you may offer.
