February 2019 Market Stats

We feel like it rained the whole month of February! Let’s see if that affected the real estate market.

In February 2019, 176 detached single family homes were put on the market with 156 of those homes selling. Those homes had a median sales price of $228,627 and saw an average of 76 days on the market. Sellers were able to get 97.7% of their asking price.  That is about .5% down from last month.

This leaves us with 570 homes on the market in Ascension Parish with a median list price of $279,449. There is 3.4 months worth of inventory available. It’s very interesting that last February there were only 116 homes that sold. Looks like we are headed back toward a seller’s market!
