Baton Rouge’s Million Dollar Homes

It wasn’t that long ago that the market for million dollar homes in Baton Rouge was considered “sluggish.”  In July of 2019 we had a 25 month supply, meaning that it would likely take a minimum of two years to get your $1,000,000+ home sold.  Fast forward to December 2021 and we were down to a 5 month supply.  The median cost per square of existing million dollars homes has gone from around $250/sq. ft. in 2019 to around $330/sq, ft. as of March 2022.  And today, new construction is coming in at around $350/sq. ft. or more.  So, what’s changed?

In a “pandemic” and “post pandemic” world the cost of new construction has driven up the value of existing homes.  We can see that in every price range.  And, across the country, American’s appetite for bigger homes with more amenities and more space has grown.  We live at home, work at home, and teach our kids from home.  The availability of low interest rate mortgages has also made these homes more affordable.  So, it should come as no surprise that the “high end” of our market has seen a remarkable shift.  Some might even consider the current million dollar plus market a “sellers market.”  That might be a little over stated but it certainly feels more “well balanced” with new homes entering the market as existing listings are getting sold.

What can you expect to find in these homes? That hasn’t changed. You’ll find quality construction, meticulous attention to detail, and professionally designed interiors. And as beautiful as the interiors are, the front elevations and outdoor spaces are what really impresses me. Just take a look at some of these porches, patios, outdoor kitchens, pools, and landscaping. Whether it’s contemporary or traditional, these homes are impressive inside and out.
