Baton Rouge Home Sales Slump, But Home Improvements May Help

For many Baton Rouge homeowners who have wanted to sell their homes, the current housing market has been rather cold. This was proven out recently and results were published nationally showing that home sales are, indeed, down across the nation. The one exception was in the south, but even that was a dismal advance. With home sales again slumping, many homeowners are now looking for ways to improve their current homes while they wait out the market to improve.
In a story just published, we see the following:

“The National Association of Realtors (NAR) Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI) fell in January to by 2.5 percent to 106.0 from an upwardly revised 108.7 in December. On a year-over-year basis, January’s PHSI was up a modest 1.4 percent from January 2015’s level of 104.5, which is the second smallest year-over-year increase in the history of the index.”

When home sales slump like this, it is often a better idea to consider additional investments in the home, and holding on to it for the time being. A great way to invest more in any home is to add quartz countertops. Baton Rouge homeowners who put in new quartz countertops often are able to ask a higher selling price, because of this improvement. Potential buyers are generally attracted to new countertops, and when they are made of quartz, prospective buyers fall in love with them.

In addition, new quartz countertops in Baton Rouge homes are a benefit that the homeowner can enjoy as well while waiting for the home to sell.
