New Orleans Real Estate News: April 2010

1st Quarter 2010 | Multi-Family Home Sales in Algiers Point, New Orleans LA

I recently was asked about how the real estate market is doing in Algiers Point, specifically for doubles and other multi-family properties.  Well, I’m sorry to say, that it’s not good news for sellers in the community – too much competition and too few sales.

 

Multi-Family Property in Algiers Point (including doubles)

While the trend line may indicate increasing values, there have been only 3 multi-family properties sold in the Point in the last 6 months and none as of 3/31/2010.  With 23 active listings at this time, there is a lot for the buyers to choose from, making them more likely to walk away from a deal if they don’t feel like they are getting a “bargain”.

Sales of Doubles in Algiers Point

Prices of doubles in the Point have followed the same trend line over the past few years.  There are currently 16 properties listed for sale, while there have been only 2 successful sales in the last 6 months and none in 2010. 

Only 7 of the available properties are generating any rental income at this time, making it a harder sell to investors who are attempting to determine whether a property will cash flow according to their standards.  There are 14 rental listings in the Point, priced from a low of $600 per month for a one bedroom to a high of $4500 per month for a 2 bedroom single family home, so obviously determining a real rate of return is easier on properties that are already tenant occupied.
