Inventory Dips — Market Shifts from Buyer's Market to Seller's Market —
A seller's ability to sell a home is determined by the supply of homes for sale and the demand for that housing.
Basic supply and demand. In real estate, that is represented by the current month's supply of homes for sale. This supply value is calculated by taking the number of homes for sale divided by the number of homes sold in the previous month.
Since the first of the year, the Baton Rouge area market has seen a significant increase in sold homes. Beginning the year, we had an
8 month supply
of homes on the market – which represents a buyer's market wherein there are more properties on the market than active buyers. Since January, we have seen our inventory decline to less than a
5.5 month supply
, thus shifting our
market of the moment
from a buyers market to a
— for the first time since 2008! In Ascension: 3.28 month supply; In Livingston: 4.5 month supply. And the average sales price has increased since January.
