Market Statistics for Greater Baton Rouge Home Sales

With the conclusion of the second quarter of 2018 real estate in the books, we look at the trend of the average days on the market for detached single family homes sold in Ascension Parish, East Baton Rouge Parish, Iberville Parish, Livingston Parish, West Baton Rouge Parish, and the entire Greater Baton Rouge Area. As displayed in the graph below, the average days on the market decreased across the board from the first quarter to the second quarter of this year, with the exception of West Baton Rouge Parish. East Baton Rouge and Ascension Parish homes sold quicker compared to the rest of the area covered by the Multiple Listing Service. Other than Iberville Parish in the second quarter, the average days on the market has increased in each of the parishes and in the entire Multiple Listing Service from last year to this year of both the first and second quarters.
