Keller Williams opens Prairieville office

From Baton Rouge Business Report

Keller Williams First Choice has opened a real estate office in Prairieville. This isn’t a spin-off of the existing Keller Williams office in Baton Rouge, says Patricia Odom, team leader and CEO for the office; rather, it’s a totally new franchise for the chain, based in Austin, Texas. Keller Williams claims to be the third-largest real estate company in the U.S. Odom says company opened the new office because it wanted to enter the Ascension market. Sue McDonald, a veteran Ascension Realtor, is the operating principal along with Mary Garner DeVoe. The office has 30 agents now, yet Odom says the staffing is growing.

Capital Region home sales down 6.2%

From the Business Report:

Capital Region home sales down 6.2%

The number of houses sold in metro Baton Rouge fell by 6.2% during 2009, despite an increase in sales in Ascension and Livingston parishes. There were 6,905 houses sold in the Capital Region, according to the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors Multiple Listing Service. That compares with the 7,362 MLS sales that happened in 2008. East Baton Rouge Parish home sales were down 10.6% for the year, going from 4,467 sales in 2008 to 3,992 in 2009. That outweighed the 3.3% sales gains reported in Livingston, where there were 1,233 MLS transactions compared with 1,193 in 2008, and the 3% gain in Ascension, which went from 1,236 sales in 2008 to 1,274 in 2009. The other Capital Region category, which includes MLS sales in parishes such as West Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, West Feliciana and Iberville, likewise reported a drop in sales, from 466 in 2008 to 406 in 2009. As in most parts of the U.S., local sales were driven by first-time homebuyers and all the incentives given to them. That outcome is reflected in the drop in average sale prices. In 2008, the average sale price in metro Baton Rouge was $201,521, falling to $191,252.
