Baton Rouge Real Estate Appraisers Report On East Baton Rouge 2012 Home Sales

Baton Rouge Real Estate Appraisers Report On East Baton Rouge 2012 Home Sales  

Inman News is reporting U.S. Existing-home sales near 5-year high on January 22, 2013

While EBRP Home Sales were better than 2009, 2010 and 2011, East Baton Rouge Parish home sales in 2012 WERE NOT above the 5 year high in 2008! 

ALL housing markets are “LOCAL”, which means when the media showers us with glowing news about “national housing trends”, one has to ask themself, “is my local housing market performing better or below these national numbers?”.   

2008  4463
2009 3998
2010 3509
2011 3612
2012 4185 

2008 home sales were actually better by 278 sales.  Yes, 2012 EBRP home sales were better than in 2009, 2010 and 2011! 

YES, there’s much to be happy about with the 2012 Baton Rouge Real Estate market. 

NOTE: The GBRMLS home sales numbers noted above differ from The Advocate Newspaper and one other local Real Estate Team report.  These two (2) real estate links are listed below and are worth reading.  


A positive note from Pat Wattam’s 2012 market report is the declining supply of homes on the market.
