Does anyone know how the housing market is in Baton Rouge these days? WE had put our home up for sale in February this year and got discouraged, so took it off. It was in a good price range in a nicer upscale neighborhood. Thanks!

I see lots of houses in 300s... They are nice houses, but I feel EBR and surrounding areas just don't have enough young/mid aged professionals to support that kinds of housing prices.

Any thoughts?

I think that this area does have a lot of middle aged professionals though. I came from south Florida amisdt all old people, so I think this area is much younger and filled with families that would maYBE in this price range. I may be wrong though. I guess maybe the 300-400 price range is probably the worst price range now as the economy is so bad, but thanks for the thoughts-Geaux Tigers!

I came from New England - lots of young professionals.. Even in MA, 300-400 price range is still "high".

I think B.R. Has Plenty Young professionals and the economy is bringing in new business' and only time will tell but I fear we have over built in some of the wrong areas with a lot of large look alike 3-4K Homes.I don't think We are are a community that is ready for that high priced tract homes.And I' afraid we have really over built in the Apt. areas also.Maybe just to much to quick.Time will tell.
