South Point Subdivision Denham Springs Post Flood Home Sales Update as of May 26 2017
South Point is being helped tremendously by the Greater Baton Rouge area’s low inventory of homes for sale. Pre-flood, the larger homes in South Point were selling in the $160s to low $170s and the flooded renovated larger homes are selling in the $180s.

Yes, approximately 35 percent of South Point did flood during the “Great Flood” of August 12-15, 2016, see flood water level in the photo below with yellow arrow pointing to water height. It was the streets closest to Highway 16 that flooded, South Point Dr up to Whitehall Ave, Sweetbriar Ct, Springhill Dr closest to Falcon Crest Dr, Terrace Ave, Sandlewood Dr and Falconcrest Dr.
Here’s a collage of South Point flood damaged homes I took after the great flood.
