Ascension Parish Real Estate Market Stats for September 2010 Monday, Oct 18 2010 

Monthly Sales were 72 units. Comparison to last month:  Decreased 4% from 75 units.  Comparison to this month last year: Decreased 40% from 121 Units.

Average Sold Price was $204,896.  Comparison to last month:  Decreased 5% from $216,581.  Comparison to this month last year: Decreased 7% from $191,622.

Current Inventory is 9.91 months.  Comparison to last month:  Increased from 9.53 months.  Comparison to this month last year: Increased from 5.12 months.

Average Days on Market were 97.  Comparison to last month:  Increased from 88 days.  Comparison to this month last year: Increased from 83 days.

So what do all these numbers mean?  

The decrease in volume we saw this past month is not extraordinarily alarming to me. Again, we are coming out of a medicated market. September is historically slow due to school starting in August. Average sales prices were down and I still attribute that to the onslaught of first time homebuyers we saw. Compared with the rest of the country, Ascension Parish has fared very well during these tough economic times. My prediction is that we will continue to see slow movement through the winter months and will greet the spring with a flurry of activity.

These stats are for areas 90, 91 & 92 in Ascension Parish. Information used from Greater Baton Rouge MLS.  They include only single family dwellings.  Mobile home and land sales are not part of these numbers.  If you would like information on either of these, feel free to let me know.

So what do all these numbers mean?   

Our activity and sales prices in Ascension Parish are leveling out. September numbers will be interesting to view. Most buyers were trying to close before school started in August.

Ascension Parish Real Estate Market Stats for July 2010 Friday, Aug 27 2010 

Monthly Sales were 71 units. Comparison to last month:  Decreased 51% from 145 units.  Comparison to this month last year: Decreased 32% from 105 Units.

Average Sold Price was $221,460.  Comparison to last month:  Increased 14% from $194,341.  Comparison to this month last year: Increased 2% from $217,878.

Current Inventory is 10.11 months.  Comparison to last month:  Increased from 4.9 months.  Comparison to this month last year: Increased from 5.80 months.

Average Days on Market were 113.  Comparison to last month:  Increased from 61 days.  Comparison to this month last year: Increased from 109 days.

So what do all these numbers mean?   Remember, the tax credit expired.  Most closings happened by the June 30 deadline. (A few stragglers were able to take advantage of the extended deadline.) What I do see as encouraging is that the average sales price was up.  If you are a seller, you have a lot of competition out there.  Make sure that your home is is top notch condition and price it well.  An overpriced home will only help to sell the competition.

These stats are for areas 90, 91 & 92 in Ascension Parish. Information used from Greater Baton Rouge MLS.  They include only single family dwellings.  Mobile home and land sales are not part of these numbers.  If you would like information on either of these, feel free to let me know.

Furry Friday :: Yelp! Adopt a Dog, Make a Friend Friday, Jul 30 2010 

My name is Camo. I am as sweet as they come, and I love to give hugs. I usually hang out inside in the shelter office because I am such a good dog that everyone at Yelp wants me to help them with their office work. I love to sleep under the desks in the office. I absolutely love kids and other dogs. I don’t think their is a family that I wouldn’t fit right in to. I promise if you adopt me, you will have the best dog around.

Camo is up-to-date with routine shots, microchipped, and neutered.

Come by to see me and my friends Saturday, July 31, 2010 at the Mall of Louisiana from 10 a.m. till 2 p.m.  Across from Borders on the grassy area.

Adopt a Dog : Make a Friend Thursday, Jul 1 2010 

Girly10 (my daughter) and I went to check out YelpBR.  I have heard many things about this no-kill dog adoption facility and wanted to see what it was all about.  Let me tell you, they are a wonderful organization!  They have many very sweet dogs up for adoption.  As you can imagine they need lots of help.  They need volunteers as well as monetary donations for supplies, vet services, etc. 

I have partenered up with these fine people and will start sharing with you the the wonderful canines they have up for adoption and also share the upcoming events they will be hosting.  Stay tuned and be pre-warned…these dogs will steal your heart!
