Tri-parish New Construction Market Analysis

Tri-Parish New Construction Real Estate Market Report

Through July 2009

This post deals with new construction in the tri-parish (Ascension, East Baton Rouge, and Livingston) area. The data used for this report were extracted from the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors MLS database. Only data relating to detached single family (DSF) homes were extracted. For sales data new construction data were identified as those records having a status of New, Under Construction or Proposed Construction. Current inventory for new construction included only those records having a status of New or Under Construction.

Looking at the next three charts we can see the average selling price per square foot of living area for each of the three parishes. In 2009, new construction in Ascension parish sold for an average of $114.87/sq.ft. which is down 4.6% from 2008 where the price per square foot peaked at $120.37/sq.ft. In East Baton Rouge parish new construction sold for $130.25/sq.ft. in 2009 which is up $1.05 from sales in 2008. Livingston parish saw a modest decline in the price of new construction of $0.48/sq.ft. from a high of $105.05/sq.ft. in 2008 to $104.57/sq.ft. in 2009. A statistically negligible decline.

Looking at these three charts we can see that, while the type of home sold in the parish has shifted toward one costing less per square foot, Ascension Parish was home to three of the top five selling subdivisions in terms of unit sales. The top five subdivisions were as follows:

Parish Subdivision 2009 Unit Sales
Ascension Pecan Ridge 34
East Baton Rogue Lakes at Jamestown 33
Ascension Keystone of Galvez 26
Ascension Gateway Cove 21

The new Eagles Landing subdivision located off of Hwy 42 and Joe Sevario Rd. is progressing nicely.
