Baker Louisiana Home Price Meltdown 2010 to 2014Will recent Baker Louisiana murder tragedy at Community Civic Center impact home values? I've been appraising homes now in the Baker Louisiana housing market for 20 years. Yes, the tragedy of the three (3) teens that lost their lives at a party at the Baker Civic Center last Friday evening has the Town Residents in shock. As a local housing reporter, I'm not trying to take advantage of this situation by reporting on bad housing news. Still, the enormity of such an event opens up many questions, such as will this happen again, how safe will residents feel on the streets in Baker going forward, can the Town afford to increase police presence to avoid another event like this? And then, there's the housing question of how does such an event im...

This is messed up! A Private Plane crashes into three (3) Baker Louisiana homes in Parc Chaleur Subdivision in June 2013 and one family is still without a home, home isn't being repaired and it appears it will be leveled leaving a vacant slab. In my mind, the Outrage here is that the Pilot's Company he worked for nor his Company Insurance paid for the damage they created! That's the SHAME in all of this! Here's the original news story on Jun 10, 2013 http://theadvocate.com/home/6190324-125/plane-crashed-feared-in-groom    I took these photos on Sunday, 1/5/2014. I don't know if the homeowner just didn't have enough homeowners insurance or what happened and it would seem their mortgage company would have required them to carry enough insurance.    What bothers me is that on August 24, 20...

http://www.fhaappraisersbatonrouge.com/ – Baker Louisiana FHA Appraisers: 2010 Housing Market Observations There’s some good news for the Baker housing market! A segment of the Baker market is now increasing in median sales price from the March 2009 period, see charting below. The parameters of the GBRAR MLS search included homes from $70,000 to $135,000, 16 years old plus, 3 bedrooms in 70714 zip code – data extracted on April 14, 2010. Why I stated “some good news”. For the home I appraising at approximately 1,300sf, there were 33 competing listings, indicating an oversupplied market.  There's a 7 to 9 month supply of housing on the market and multiple REO properties on the market, both listed in MLS and not listed in MLS.  Remember that the Michael Tarabotto Active Rain article "The...
