http://www.facebook.com/ascrebuzz - Prairieville Housing Trends: Jefferson Crossing Prices Correct In 2011.        Since the Federal Tax Credit Expiration in May 2010, the number of home sales has been on the decline.         A recent home appraisal in and analysis of Jefferson Crossing revealed this interesting finding.  From 2007 to 2011, the median sales price has continued to decline slowly.  From 2007 to 2010, the median sales prices were $313,700, $299,000, $303,500, $338,000 and in 2011 it's currently $289,000 based only on 5 sales.  Again, this is only based on 5 sales in the first 4.5 months of 2011.  In 2010, there were 11 total sales, so one can see that the number of home sales for 2011 could be about the same as in 2010.   NOTE: Per GBRMLS sheets, two (2) of these home sale...

http://www.facebook.com/ascrebuzz - Prairieville Home Appraisals Reports On Les Chenier Subdivision 2011.  So far, only one (1) home sale in 2011, a foreclosure for $155,000.       I had a local real estate agent contact me last week asking for a update on Les Chenier Subdivision as there really hasn't been much home sales activity in this development, but a development that has experienced some REO or foreclosure activity.  This development has puzzled me for several years as to how it climbed so high in home prices after Hurricane Katrina for these smaller homes.  The Median Sales Prices from 2005 to 2010 climbed and then rightfully so corrected from $167,000, $186,000, $191,000, $195,250, $193,500, $180,000 and now one (1) distressed sale in 2011 for $155,000.  It would appear that ...
