Five Reasons Home Prices Have Been Rising


Baton Rouge Appraiser NOTE: This is a national article and part of these 5 reasons may or may not apply to Baton Rouge Real Estate. "Some" local housing news has been positive and some is not.  The Baker market is still struggling with Foreclosures.  Subdivision s like Park Forest, Monticello and Sherwood Forest are still struggling with Foreclosures.  On the other hand, the more popular markets around the Mall of Louisiana and Perkins Rowe are performing excellently.

DAILY REAL ESTATE NEWS | MONDAY, AUGUST 13, 2012


It’s hard to argue against buying a house now, assuming you can get a loan,” writes John Waggoner, a columnist with USA Today. Sure, Waggoner says that getting a credit check for approval of a mortgage can be a “only slightly less intrusive than a CIA background check,” but for those who are able to qualify, a lot of analysts say that now can be a good time to purchase a home.
