Have Livingston Parish home sales price DECLINED since the flood?
Absolutely as median sales price declined from $165,000 to $156,000 since January 1 2016 because of the $40K to $100K sales prices of flooded-gutted homes. However, sales prices of flooded-renovated Western Livingston Parish homes would blow your mind. It’s as if today’s post-flood home buyers don’t have any context as to what homes were worth pre-flood…and some of the problems inside subdivisions like Shadow Springs. This is in part due to low inventory, not enough homes available to purchase, and lack of homes or apartments available to rent. This is driving buyers to desparation and some are OVER PAYING for local housing.
