Email Answer To Baton Rouge Home Buyer Desiring To Buy In There
I received an email from an out-of-town home renter (they’re from out-of-town but renting locally) seeking to purchase an existing home in Woodridge. I said existing home because approximately 90% of recent home sales in Woodridge recently have been taking place in the new rear filing of new homes. The question was asking what’s a reasonable asking price and/or support for the 2,300sf to 2,400sf existing homes as opposed to the newer homes?
Below I have posted the general home price trends within Woodridge since 2007 with 2011 vs 2012 support increasing from $138.13/sf up to a new historic high of $142.64/sf. And, median sales price increase in 2011 vs 2012 from $329,200 up to $348,000. Marketing time in same period declined from 125 days to 109 days. Home sales do appear to have slowed with only 7 year-to-date as opposed to the 41 that sold in 2012. This could also be bacause of the incredibly high prices being asked for new homes in new rear filing.
