http://batonrougehousing.wordpress.com/ – Summerfield Subdivision Denham Springs 2011 Housing Numbers. It used to be that homes in Summerfield sold in the $110/sf to $112/sf range. That was then and this is a new housing market in 2011.
Here are the Summerfield Subdivision housing numbers from end of December 2010 to end of December 2011. Average sales price was down from $192,380 in 2010 to $174,150 in 2011 or -9.5%. Median sales price was was down from $189,500 in 2010 to $175,000 in 2011 or -7.7%. However, the average sold price per sq. ft. was only down $2.42/sf or -2.45% from $98.58/sf to $96.16/sf.
Distressed Properties To Blame For Decline. I suspect part of this decline was due to 2 of the 5 total sales being 1 foreclosure and 1 short sale or 40% of total sales. And, Summerfield is simply correcting in price along with the remainder of Greater Baton Rouge Housing.
