More Good News!!

by The Pat Wattam Team

More good news forecast for the greater Baton Rouge Real Estate Market!!  Baton Rouge appeared on a list of markets with the best expected performance in home prices over the next 12 months amoung areas with populations greater than 600,000!!!  The home Price Forecast is complied by Cary, NC based Local Market Monitor, a real estate forecasting firm covering more than 300 local markets in the US.

The reason Baton Rouge was included in this group is because we were in a market were housing did not have a big boom, so the home values are expected to remain level for the coming months.  Also, as reported earlier, Baton Rouge is expected to weather the recession better than most and that contributes to our good housing market.

The great economic news for our area, the low interest rates, and good availability of homes, makes this a perfect time to make the move to a new house! Check out the available home Listings at to see what is available.

by The Pat Wattam Team

The Brooklings Institute recently named Baton Rouge as one of the top 100 Cities in the country to best weather the recession, citing economic performance - in fact, we came in at Number 8!!!  It's great to be in the top of a poll for a change!!!  This poll reflects what the Chamber here has been saying for some time, things are alright in Baton Rouge!

Baton Rouge was cited as being one of the best cities to ride out the recessiong due to construction, stable government employment, and our energy sector!  Add to that, our stable housing Market, and once more, Baton Rouge is a GREAT place to call home!!
