Source: www.wafb.com Livingston Parish Roads At Crisis Level: Parish President To Repair ONLY 40 roads starting soon. Livingston Parish Government doesn’t realize condition of roads impacts home values! Livingston Parish is basically a “Poor Parish” and from 1992 to 2006, approved too many new homes subdivisions with roads that now need repaving, not just patching. Livingston Parish roads are beginning to haunt Livingston Parish government and those looking to move there better wake up and do their own research FIRST. When I appraise homes in that South Point subdivision, WOW, what an embarrassment and it’s all over the news. ONLY 40 Roads repaved isn’t going to make a dent on all these new subdivisions approved from 1992 to 2006 that need new roads NOW. In South Point, ONLY the main South Point Drive is scheduled to be resurfaced. Other roads that resemble roads in third world countries are on the 3 year waiting list, which is totally unacceptable to area residents. And, if Livingston Parish is going to approve any new subdivisions, they’ve GOT TO have the $ to fix the roads first.

http://www.batonrougerealestateappraisal.com/ – May 2010 Baton Rouge Housing Video: Numbers Show A Stable Market Today is June 9, 2010 and by this time, the solds for May 2010 would have been reported within the local GBRAR MLS related to the $8,000 Tax Credit. The video below was prepared by Tony Zito, with Zito Real Estate Group, and shares the number of pending sales for each month from February 2010 to today on June 8 2010. Tony also shares the sales for each May from 2004 to this past May 2010. Be sure to check out Tony’s Blog @ http://perfectbatonrougerealestate.com/ The questions in my mind are these: 1.) What impact did the $8,000 Tax Credit have on Greater Baton Rouge area home sales in 2010 leading up to the April 30 deadline? In the video below, I think you’ll find that it had a significant impact on local home sales. 2.) Was our market functioning based solely on this government stimulus and will home sales drop off after this stimulus has been removed? The answer to this question and concern will be answered by the market in the coming months.

http://www.batonrougerealestateappraisal.com/ – Baton Rouge Certified Home Appraisers: Area Home Sales See Gains In March The Advocate Newspaper and Chad Calder are reporting “BR-area home sales see gain in March“, click on the link to read the entire article. Below is a snippet: “The number of homes sold in the Baton Rouge metro area rose slightly in March, though the first quarter was down 2 percent. The March bright spot is largely due to an increase in Ascension Parish. The figures, compiled by the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors, account for about 85 percent of the market in the eight-parish area. Realtors sold 600 homes in the metro area in March, 1 percent more than the 594 sold in the same month last year. Dollar volume in March was up 2 percent to $118.0 million. The quarter, however, still reflects the downward trend that has characterized recent years. There were 1,406 homes sold during the first three months of the year, compared to 1,431 the year before. Dollar volume was also down 2 percent to $270.3 million for the quarter.“
http://www.denhamspringslarealestate.net/ – Livingston Parish Sees Higher Priced Homes Decline In Sales Volume and Pricing! According to Tom Cook and the Baton Rouge Business Report Weekly this week, “The largest increase in the volume of sales took place in Livingston Parish in the $100,000 to $150,000 price range. From March 2008 to February 2009, there were 107 sales in this price range. From March 2009 to February, there were 221 sales in this price range. This represents an increase of 106%. Homes in the $200,000 to $250,000 price range decreased in volume by nearly 9% from March 2009 to February. Home sales in the $200,000 to $250,000 price range fell 22% from March 2008 to February 2009.” This is one point I fully agree with and see in this market. The Denham Springs and Walker markets from $200,000 to $300,000, where new home pricing is above $115/sf, have been way oversupplied for at least the past year. This is one of the reasons that Juban Parc became the “New Juban Parc” because Denham Springs isn’t really a higher end housing market. In fact, since 4/2009, only 13% of home sales have been above $200,000. The developers and builders both expected Continue reading Livingston Parish Sees Higher Priced Homes Decline In Sales Volume and Pricing
