Generally, Yes.  On a median basis, down 1.8%. 

NOTE: The Baton Rouge photo is older from when the Mississippi River was full of water.  Not so much in these days of drought.  The photo was purchased from BigStock many years ago. 

From April 2022 vs October 2022, based on median sales prices of DSF detached single-family home sales, Greater Baton Rouge decreased by 3.7%, East Baton Rouge decreased by 3.6%. Ascension increased by 1.15%, Livingston decreased the most at 6.35% and West Baton Rouge increased by almost 1%.  Yes, I understand there is 1 more day of October sales to report.  I'm answering a question here I've been receiving lately from local REALTORS® asking about home prices.
