Settlement At Willow Grove Baton Rouge Appears To Weakening in 2017

By
Real Estate Appraiser with Accurate Valuations Group, LLC LA St Certified 851

A client planning a potential purchase in The Settlement At Willow Grove requested sales trends.  So, I prepared charts, interactive charts and commentary on trends.  What the trends are communicating is prices are pulling back to prices of two years ago.  

***NOTE: There are 9 under contract homes within when closed will provided a more clear trends direction for 2017.  While it's important to report "What Happened", it's as important to report on the "Market In Play" or what is taking place right now. 


Baton Rouge's Luxury Market appears to be softening, becoming weaker. 
Outside of Settlement within Baton Rouge's 70806, 70808, 70809 and 70810 in the $1,000,000 to $1,500,000 from ages 6-10 plus, not including Country Club of Louisiana or Settlement, appears to be weakening with 20 month supply, 89% listing to sales price ratio, average 197 days on the market.  What about The Settlement? 


From 3/1/2016 to 3/12/2017, these are the trends GBRAR MLS is reporting infographic. 

 

As of 1/6/2017, this is the trends view
