Algiers LA 70131 – Number of Homes Sold February 2009

Algiers LA February 2009 Home Sales

The number of homes sold in Algiers in February creeped up to 10 from the 7 January sales, putting the total for 2009 at 17 so far. (Compared to the 28 sales at the same time last year)

The most startling number for Algiers has to be the days on market though. In 2008, the average days on market was 119. The 2009 average as of the end of February is 191. Some of the homes that have been on the market for an extended period of time are selling as the owners become more realistic about pricing. In February, sellers received an average of 87% of their asking price, indicating that they were either testing the market or were just priced too high and ended up accepting a lower price after an extended listing period.

The bottom line is that over pricing your home results in a longer marketing time.

Algiers LA – Average Home Sale Price February 2009

Average sale prices in Algiers declined from January to February, following the downward trend that we’ve been watching for the past 4 years.

When deciding on a price for your home, it’s critical to look at what has actually sold in your neighborhood for the last 90-120 days. The price your neighbor got for his house last year may very well be a completely unrealistic number in today’s market, and the high price your other neighbor is asking likely has nothing to do with what the home will actually sell for.

Lisa, I may have said it before but you have such wonderful graphics....I sometimes wonder who the reports are written for because I don't know if your average consumer can understand some of them.  Yours are great!

Wow Lisa.  Sellers in Algiers really need to get serious with that type of competition.  The first step is to find a West Bank Agent who understands the market conditions and can accurately assess the house in terms of today's reality.  You are obviously more than qualified.
