Belle Chasse LA | Number of Homes Sold | July 2009
Belle Chasse ended July with 3 homes sold, bringing the year to date total to 36 homes sold in 2009 (down from 50 sales at the same time last year).
Conventional financing ruled July – all of the sales were to buyers using conventional loans, which means they had to have at least a 10% down payment. These are strong buyers that are choosing homes in the $300-$400k price range which currently accounts for about 21% of the Belle Chasse real estate market.
The drop in the number of sales pushed the absorption rate up from 7 months to 17 months, showing what a delicate balance there is between supply and demand in today’s market.
